I sure have a lot of topics I want to cover, but one that requires no effort from me is of running in the rain. I have done it a few times recently, and it has been a wonderful experience. I have a couple of take-away messages from the activity, and I like talking about this subject, mostly because it involves nature and healthy material.
As The Rain Drops
When you run in the rain, you get cooled off by the water that drops. It was raining very lightly during my recent runs at the park, so I wasn’t getting drenched, but that could be just as good. After a while, when you would normally start to sweat during a standard run, your sweat blends with the rain to create water that feels clean and cools you down.
While I was running, there were very few people around the park, as there were only a few walking their dogs, or standing around, or walking slowly. I saw very little activity, but I am sure there was a lot of activity at local gyms(folks missing the event). Regardless, I was near the end of my run and saw another guy like me who was running, and who seemed to be just about finished. We started running as a team, and making jokes, and it was good because he made up for the total lack of activity elsewhere in the park. His name was Max and I might run into him again sometime.
You Can Find People Like You
One message to take away from this is that there are people like you out there. I don’t lose hope that there are those like Max out there, who bring energy and a cool attitude to the table. I see/meet them once in a while, and it is refreshing. You have a certain way you look at people, or a specific interest like salsa dancing or geography, and so you can’t lose hope that there are people who can connect with you quite well in this category. They are out there. Also, you will not find these people if you don’t put out your interests in practice. If you hide your salsa dancing passion, the person with that interest who you could have met will not know, and you won’t end up connecting. This is why you have to exhibit your interests regardless of the response of many, because you then open up opportunity with a few.
Your Area Likely Has More For You To Use
Another message here is to use what you have. There are people in the houses close to the park I ran at that I am sure are obese, or have health or stress problems, or so on, that would be in a completely different situation if they crossed the street every two days and walked or ran at the park. Instead of this, some of them look at being close to the park as annoying because it brings slightly more traffic around. We have to take note of what we have available to us, because it could be the world to someone else.
Some Adventures Are Freeing
Lastly, when you run in the rain, you forget almost everything else. You feel invigorated from the cooling effects of the rain water, as well as the effects of running, and you get that natural feeling that you can’t get in most other exercise scenarios. If it rains in your area at some time, I suggest you try this out. If you are not interested in specifically running in the rain, then I would suggest you try out some activity around your area that you haven’t done much of before.
