the title of that song came in my head during my walk the other day.
i came home from work, got ready for my 5 mile walk. got my shoes on and went out and noticed it was raining. well, more than raining. it was pretty much pouring.
a typical fall day here in Toronto.
any other time in my life i would have taken that as a “sign” (meaning an excuse to be laaaazy)
and i would have thrown off the shoes, got in to my jammies, turned on the fire place and ate some sort of cold weather comfort food and patted myself on the back for having good intentions.
but i was actually bummed. i really wanted to walk.
and then it dawned on me…well…why couldn’t i walk? it’s only rain for god’s sake…it’s not gonna burn my skin…only holy water has that ability.
but we were umbrella -less.
we made a mad dash to the dollar store….arrived there soaking wet and still determined.
umbrellas in hand we began our walk. it was nice at first. almost healing if that makes sense.
i have always loved walking in the rain…since i was a child….but more a hot summer rain.
the further we got…the harder the rain fell. the walk took a poo poo-ish turn
we were getting soaked, even armed with umbrellas.
i’m a stubborn girl…when i have something in my head i do it…but half way through the walk…well i was just not enjoying it at all.
the rain was just falling too hard.
so instead of suffering through it…we went home.
s’ok, instead of 5 miles i got in 2.78 miles.
better than sitting on my ass doing nothing.
i think that down pour may have stirred a cold within tho’. i cannot afford a cold. there is too much fun to be had.
but i’d do it again…go walking in the rain. in a heartbeat.
that’s my story 🙂
