Having Fun With Running!

So I woke up early this morning... drank good coffee and listened to the rain pounding our roof and worked a bit until the sun was almost up... Put a long sleeve shirt on (first time all year I think?!?) and headed out the door to meet Nalani for a run. Running when the rain is coming down in buckets is our 'winter' running at its best.

I didn't bring my camera along this morning but in searching through my photo albums I found some shots from years past... given that this is my all time favorite run of course I have taken pictures before. What these shots are missing though are the raging waterfalls that were covering nearly every crevice in the sheer mountains and the double rainbows we saw as the sun was rising this morning. I made a comment to Nalani that even when it's raining this run is awesome. Her reply? Especially when it's raining.




It hasn't stopped raining here all day. I am completely tempted to go do this run again right now.

Ok, that's it! Where is that University of Hawaii at Manoa? Is that nearby these mountains and waterfalls?

Yep! UH is on the other side of this mountain range... Tucked in a valley where there are plenty of waterfalls and rainbows. :)

Uh, for some reason, Honolulu marathon popped in my head today, and then looking at these pics, hmmm...Seriously Michelle, I'm going on this run one day. The road to the view just looks damn perfect and I'm one of those people that likes a rainy run.

Running in the rain is absolutely MY FAV! As long as I have a visor or hat and its not in my eyes, all is right! Of course your scenery is somewhat better than mine :)
