Miserableness cancelled due to lack of misery…

Is it officially a sickness when you are disappointed the weather isn’t crappy when you run?  I have learned more about running in foul weather in the last two years than in the other 40 combined.  It now takes a tornado warning, large hail or temperatures well below zero to keep me from my appointed run.  Thursday before last I damn near killed myself trying to get to a regularly scheduled run when EVERY road to and from my house was flooded.  And for what?  A bead?  The satisfaction of getting my run in?  A notch on the gun to brag about later?  Scars?  Physical therapy visits?  Why do I do this?

This morning I will admit to being slightly disappointed when I arrived for my run and not only was it NOT raining but the weather was (almost) perfect.  Fifty two degrees, bright stars shining.  The only thing to gripe about was a little wind.  I got in 5.6 miles at an ok pace but spent the entire time (that I should have been concentrating on pace, et al.) hoping that the lightning I saw on the horizon would get to us before the run was over.  That’s sad.  We have had such crappy weather for so long that I am now frustrated by GOOD weather (he says as a deluge roars outside…).  I don’t know what to wear.  I have nothing to bitch about (except my lack of fitness).  I’m miserable when I’m not miserable.

Demented…  That’s what I really am…  I need a new hobby…  Anyone for cribbage?

    Yes, it’s officially a sickness. But, then, there are a whole lot of people who think that all of us are sick.
