You can't do both


“But it’s raining”, is the excuse we hear constantly during the monsoons. Everything is put on hold because you presumably can’t step outdoors in the rain.
And yet, few things beat the pleasure of running in the rain. Raindrops falling on your head. Feet splashing through puddles. Newly washed leaves on trees. Wildflowers that bloom only for weeks. The smell of fresh earth. The cool air hitting your face, caressing your bare arms. Bliss.

This year, I’ve learnt. You can either make excuses, or you can do what you want to do. You can’t do both. The choice is yours.

Flashback 2011- August 

The photograph was taken in August at a colonial bungalow where we stayed during an outstation run, and forms a part of my Pictoral Flashback of 2011.

Natasha - Oh, how true that is! And you've painted such a vivid and beautiful picture of what it's like to just go running through the rain. How invigourating!

So true...you made me want to run in the rain now...but alas...no rain. But I do have snow and freezing temps. Guess I will wait and do the treadmill right now. Ha!
