Rain on my parade!

Sunday -

35 min run - ON LAND! :)
My leg has been pain free again for a few days so I decided to test out running again. I also decided to test out a pair of racing flats the run product line manager at Nike gave me. Usually I CAN NOT wear racing flats as I need some sort of stabilization. I tried them on around my house and they felt so light weight and comfortable I decided to give them a try with my heel insoles - and they worked! I got to the gym, parked my car and took off running. These shoes are incredible! I felt so light weight....I felt like I was flying. I also noticed with these shoes I was landing on the ball of my foot. My form felt dead on today. Upon starting my leg felt annoying but for the first time since I've been injured I would say it wasn't painful. I knew the injury was present and it kept me in check but at the same time gave me a bit of freedom. 10 minutes into the run it started raining, at first it was light showers but quickly moved on to steady rain and I LOVED it. I didn't want the rain to stop, nor did I want to stop running. I felt fucking fantastic! I finished pain free and with a comfortable 8:35 pace - 4.1 miles down :)
