There you are, jogging along when the rain begins to slowly creep in. As the drops come harder and faster, your feet just naturally begin to move a bit quicker. The more drenched you get, the less your body seems to care that your lungs are burning. The rain washes away the sweat before your body can comprehend that you should be more tired by now. The puddles you were avoiding just minutes ago now look like targets. You feel younger, and yet at the same time more confident as you pass fewer and fewer other runners. The weak have given up, gone home. Yet you feel fast. Instead of trying to outrun the rain, you are now just trying to keep up.You feel fast. Very, Very, Fast.
