Well, I've been enjoying the new season of Biggest Loser and I am an honorary member of the Cranberry team for the fall challenge. I was determined to get my last chance workout today before weigh in tomorrow. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to do anything until after work when it was pouring down rain. It seemed to clear up a little after dinner, so I set off. It began raining a few minutes after leaving the house. However, it is still fairly warm here in the Pacific Northwest so I decided not to worry about it. I actually enjoyed my walk/jog in the rain. The air smelled fresh and felt good to my lungs. I could hear the pitter patter of the rain hitting the leaves of the trees and the water filling up the creek. I could feel the stress of the day melting off me and I felt good and free. I thought about how much the garden must enjoy the rain. I thought about how clean and fresh the world seems after a good rain. I thought about how good it felt to get outside and forget about the stress of the day. I actually enjoyed my walk in the rain.
