Another Case of the Mondays

Greetings fellow friends! Happy Monday, yet again. This morning started me off with another case of the Mondays. Two weeks ago it happened to be my car breaking down literally a minute from the parking garage. Today I wasn't even able to get a car. Being a state holiday, the State Motor Pool was of course closed. It occurred to me about 30 seconds from arriving that this would probably be the case. Lucky for me, being a state employee gave me the option of taking the holiday, versus driving my car 2 hours to Birmingham for the week. It didn't take me too long to decide.

It was a rather lazy weekend for me, so I forced myself to get out for a "long" run today. Due to the vast majority of my neighborhood consisting of hills, a long run for me is about 4 miles. This for me is rather pitiful as I used to double that for my long runs in the Spring. I'm working on it, but hey, I still did it. After about a minute in to my run I realized a long sleeve shirt was not the best choice for the 70 degree weather. With the chance of rain above, I prayed to the rain gods for a good rain to cool me off. Low and behold it worked! Got myself caught in a nice rainstorm!

 Please excuse my inability to take a self portrait.

I actually love running in the rain. No excuses now, you should try it! Here's a few reasons why:
Perks of Running in the Rain

1. You don't get hot.
2. No sweaty mess.
3. You don't have to shower after. (But I suggest you do.)
4. You look like a total badass.

Whenever I see a person running in the rain, I either think "Wow, they're really committed." or "That sucks." Either way, impressive.

With the rest of the rainy afternoon ahead of me, I fixed myself a chai latte to warm up. Simply delicious.

Oh my, Chai!
Chai Latte 

1 Chai Teabag
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup milk
1 packet stevia (or sweetener)
dash cinnamon

Brew your tea as normal, and add the rest. But you probably knew that already.

I think I'll take the tea's advice and finish my book. Then movie night with the roomie!

What's your favorite thing to do on a rainy day?
