Jogging in the Rain

Monday, March 7, 2011

After two teaspoons of cough syrup followed by two tall cups of latte, I am finally awake. Jogging in the rain, as I did last Saturday morning, had been a mistake for the soreness in my throat has worsened into a pain-inducing dry cough. As I ran around the oval, the gentle drizzle on my face and the sight of a handful of fellow joggers who braved the rain as I did felt too glorious for me to stop. I was then too pumped to realize that that euphoric feeling came with a price – a price that I am now paying.

hi loree. i'm glad you're feeling better now. my throat hurts from all the coughing, but it's manageable. thank you. :)

hello anonymous. my voice sounds weird right now but please allow me to sing this for you:

"Don't tell me not to live,
Just sit and putter,
Life's candy and the sun's
A ball of butter.
Don't bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade!
Don't tell me not to fly--
I've simply got to.
If someone takes a spill,
It's me and not you.
Who told you you're allowed
To rain on my parade!"
