    Don’t worry, you can go to Trader Joe’s when you come to Boston for the summit! There’s a small one on Bolyston St. and a big one in Brookline off the Green Line that also has alcohol. I know alll about the local Trader Joe’s locations haha

    Sorry it’s gloomy! I like nice, dry gym equipment, too. And I definitely think we should arrange a group field trip to Trader Joe’s during the Summit. πŸ™‚ I don’t have one near me, either!

    Bah I hate running in the rain too! There’s just really nothing enjoyable about it!

    I despise running in the rain! Glad to know I’m not the only one!

    i’m the same way with rain – if it’s just a drizzle, I don’t mind, but I really don’t want blisters.

    i’m the same way! I made my small bag of trail mix from TJs last for MONTHS – mainly because we don’t have one here, so I had to stretch it out as long as possible πŸ™‚

    I love running in the rain! I don’t use a garmin or iPod so I don’t have to worry about that. It just feels so refreshing. You’re right about taking off soppy, heavy clothes though — it always sucks!

    I never trained in the rain for my half marathon, so just my luck I had to run the last 7 miles in pouring rain! My Garmin survived, but after that, I have never been a fan of running in bad weather.

    LOL, we were just developing our mutual love for one another back then. πŸ˜€ Glad you liked it! I use my heart measuring spoons every day.

    When I walk in the rain (and come home soaked), I put my clothes in the bathroom…I’ll hang my jacket and pants over the shower door so they can drip into the shower and not on the floor. Of course I am much happier and more comfortable to work out on dry days.

    Don’t feel bad, I am NOT a fan of running in the rain either. I live in WA so it rains 9 months out of the year and sometimes it snows in the winter…I dislike running in the snow even more. I have really been considering moving to Arizona just so I don’t have to run in the rain anymore. hehe

    It’s hit or miss with me for running in the rain — If I’m not too happy to be running to begin with, i HATE the rain. At least you got to refuel with a delicious breakfast!

    Have a great day πŸ˜‰

    I really don’t like running in the rain either, and I live in Seattle. Needless to say I don’t do a lot of outdoor running October – April. I’m hoping to a good jacket and change that this year…

    I’m not a runner… but even if I was, I don’t think I’d like running in the rain! I’m such a diva in that way… haha

    The Pecan Praline Granola is VERY good! My box definitely didn’t last as long as yours πŸ™‚

    at least you got some extra reading time! killing two birds in one stone is not a bad way to start the day!

    Ugh, I hate running in the rain (a light mist can be ok, on a warm day). Thankfully, it hardly ever rains here πŸ™‚

    Have a great Friday!!

    Im not allowed to run by myself and my dad hates to run, therefore I have never been running in the rain, but I heard its never a great experience. I would be worried about my Ipod too!

    I like the rain as long as it isn’t pouring. A light mist is perfect!

    running in light rain can be refreshing when it’s once in a while. i definitely prefer clear skies and breeze too!

    I’m not a rainy day runner, either. I can handle a little sprinkle, but not an all-out rain.

    I have been thinking about going on a cruise since you got back. I actually was going to look at prices last night. lol. I don’t rain run either. I worry about my ipod way too much.

    I enjoy running in the rain, but it’s certainly not my preferred weather. If it looks like it’s going to rain, I scrap my ipod, wear older shoes and (shamefully) already dirty gym clothes, and i wear a hat to keep the rain out of my eyes as much as possible.

    Glad you could get some reading in, though! I’m about to start Eclipse and I can’t wait πŸ™‚

    Wow -you made that granola last a long time! Kudos πŸ™‚

    I HATE running in the rain. I did one time and ended up running the last half with one eye closed so that my contact didn’t float out of my eye! Definitely not a fan!

    Haha, I love running in the rain! I always get sweat-soaked in the FL humidity anyway… it’s better to get wet from rain than humidity! Looks like you had a blast on your cruise. So jealous!

    Dang girl, your granola didn’t go stale at all? I don’t like running IN the rain, but I love running right after it’s rained – the air is fresh and crisp! But no wetness involved!

    And I agree that running outside is so much better, but sometimes being able to read on a machine is awesome. One of the few perks to being injured and stair-mastering is the reading I’m getting done!

    I don’t like running in the rain either! Sadie thinks it’s play time whenever I’m on the ground too. And when I don’t pay and proceed onto my workout she stands over me and gives me this look like “What are you doing?” Ha, it’s quite funny!

    I am the same way with the rain!! If I am already outside running, then I will continue the run, but if it’s raining before I start running, I definitely would not run outside! I’m soo paranoid about my ipod & garmin breaking!

    I don’t think I’d like running in the rain either, though I’ve never tried it. I probably wouldn’t like the stickiness and I hate heavy, wet clothes. You have to right idea taking it inside to the gym. πŸ™‚

    Unlike most people, I love gym cardio machines!
