Even though it was overcast and threatening to rain out, and it was only an easy run day not a training run, I still laced up my shoes and went. It did start to rain, but I ran 1.5miles before I stopped. That's 1.5miles more than I would have gotten had I not gone out. That's so much more than just that in terms of getting geared up and going out.

It was cold and raining. I decided it wasn't worth the strain on my already sensitive knees to push through today, so I stopped.

Do I wish I had gone longer? Maybe a little. But it is not worth an injury. So I'm accepting my lower calorie burn this morning, and just being happy I got out there at all. Besides, the run in the rain wasn't so bad. If I weren't worried about how tender my knees have been lately I would have pushed through and likely thoroughly enjoyed my run.

I woke up and chased my dream. That feels awesome.

I need to do more today. I know it. I'm thinking I'll see what my kids are up to this afternoon. Yesterday taking one of my kids on a nice long walk really helped with my calorie burn. Maybe we can do that again today. Guess we will see.
