Autumn Showers

By the time I ran out the door this morning rain was gently falling down. It didn't look like stopping anytime soon so I donned a spray jacket and went running anyway. It was beautiful - rain in Canberra is a rare beauty indeed. After ten minutes I took the jacket off as I was very warm. I also wore sunglasses as the sun was shining at the same time as it rained. Autumn in Canberra - interesting, especially when it rains. Half way through the run the rain stopped. Ah well, at least it lasted a solid half hour - better than nothing. Then the sun shone brightly and it was quite hot for the rest of the run.

Then later I went for a sports/remedial massage and now I have a sore butt!


  1. Running under the rain, my favourite workout. I am sure that you had a lot of fun. What about the sound of your steps on the wet ground?

  2. Down here it was barely enough to settle the dust.
