I’m not sure what’s so different these days. Maybe I’m getting older. Perhaps I’m a bit less tolerant than I used to be to some of the issues that come along with running long distances.

I know I have gone running in the rain several times since then, but for some reason, something new … More Lather, Rinse, and Repeat
