Racing in the Rain

in All Posts

What would you do if the weather forecast for your biggest race of the season looked like this?


The idea of RUNNING in the rain doesn’t scare me in the slightest (here’s a post on How to Run in the Rain); once, I even ran in a tropical storm!  The idea of swimming in the rain isn’t so bad.  What freaks me out the most is the bike.  I’ve crashed my bike numerous times, and I have to tell you… it sucks to fall on the bike. 


When I saw that forecast, I seriously thought about backing down.  It didn’t help that it’s POURING here in Charlotte (Canton is two hours away).  I think we’re on flood watch.


Doesn’t this picture just make you want to go for a nice little bike ride?  Not.


I hemmed and hawed, but then I called DadHTP (bike expert) and Healthy Ashley (who is also running the race).  DadHTP said that my brakes won’t be as effective, but as long as I go slow around corners and anticipate stops, I’ll be okay.  Ashley told me I was being a wuss and to get my act together.


So – I’m ready to race.  But is the race ready for me?


In the case of inclement weather, most running races will go on – as long as there isn’t lightening.  For this Olympic triathlon, it sounds like the race organizers are planning to cancel the swim if it’s raining and make it a duathlon (run, bike, run).   If there is lightening, we’ll all get a 50% refund.


There’s one key thing to think about in the case of a rainy triathlon – TRANSITIONS!


I’ll bring a garbage bag to put over my gear so everything stays nice and dry if it begins to downpour.


Whew!  So much race dramarama.  This definitely adds an extra layer of suspense and excitement to my big race of the summer.  Hopefully, it will be overcast and dry – NOT RAINING!  A girl can dream.


Here’s lunch, by the way.  A delightful mess of quinoa, carrots, chickpeas, sprouts, and loads and loads of Mmmm Sauce.  Of course.


Have you ever raced in the rain? Anyone done a rainy tri before?   I’ve done two rainy halves, and I actually found them to be quite fun!  The only downfall – chafing.  But I’ve got an effective solution for that nasty problem!

    “Ashley told me I was being a wuss and to get my act together.” Haha! I actually like riding my bike in the rain–it lets me feel all bad-ass as the puddles are splashing up around me and I’m practically blinded by the water in my eyes. Awesome! 🙂 But seriously, be careful. Bike brakes are basically useless in the amount of water it looks like you might be in, and road surfaces can be SO SO slippery. Don’t go for speed if it’s going to be dangerous!

  • Shayla @ The Good Life August 5, 2011, 3:07 pm

    You’re hardcore for racing in the rain…good luck and I’ll pray for the rain to stay away! 🙂

  • Devonshire August 5, 2011, 3:07 pm

    fyi, im addicted to mmmm sauce now…thanks! lol. Don’t really have any advice for racing in the rain, i’ve never ran/swam/biked a race before…good luck!

  • allison @ thesundayflog August 5, 2011, 3:10 pm

    gah! i already tweeted at you, but im facing the same sitch, and unfortunately i dont think we get a refund for rain 🙁 NOT how i planned my first tri…

    good call on the trashbag! i will definitely be adding that to my packing list. i assume we will switch to a duathlon in the event of lighting, as there is already a duathlon option this weekend. however, my race mentor emailed and said for lightning, the whole race could be canceled. i will be SO SAD if that happens, so im crossing my fingers it stays clear for a few hours in the am. normally storms dont hit until the afternoon when the humidity picks up.

    • Mary (A Merry Life) August 5, 2011, 4:51 pm

      It poured during my first tri. It wasn’t how I planned it either but it was a good experience and a great race. If you get to do it, still enjoy it!

  • Lisa August 5, 2011, 3:13 pm

    I think you’re going to do great! I had a race this year in the rain and the swimming was pretty fun – seeing the drops on the water (and I’m a terrible swimmer but had no problem with it). As for the biking, it was sort of scary but mostly everyone went slow at the turns (very important). Also, they warned us again riding on paint in the roads (lane dividers and such), as that surface becomes especially slick when wet. Good luck and have a great time!

  • Ali G. August 5, 2011, 3:14 pm

    I dropped out of Mooseman 70.3 in New Hampshire last year because of the pouring rain. I finsihed the swim, felt great with the rain, successfully transitioned, got on the bike, tested the brakes and I started skidding! Was too nervous to tackle those NH hills with a chance of my brakes not working properly (a month before my wedding)! So I dropped…to this day, I can’t shake that DNF. I stood around in the rain all day freezing waiting for my friends to cross the finish line.

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write August 5, 2011, 3:16 pm

    I didn’t realize your tri was tomorrow! (I feel totally lame now talking about my 5K. :p teehee) Good luck!!! I’m glad you decided to do it anyway. Rain happens. Once you do it, the next big race you do will feel like small potatoes. <3

  • Laura @ My Reason to Tri August 5, 2011, 3:16 pm

    like i said on your FB page, my first tri was cool breeze this year. not only was it raining, but it was also in the low 40s….wet and COLD on a bike is no bueno! but i did it anyway, and feel a million times more bad ass for toughing it out in the horrible conditions! i would go anyway, bad weather or not. like others have said, just be more cautious, feather your brakes, stay off the lines on the road, etc. you will be fine! good luck!!!

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday August 5, 2011, 3:17 pm

    Oh no!! That totally sucks. And it will be doubly worse if it does lightning because then you’ll have to bike twice! eek!

  • McV August 5, 2011, 3:19 pm

    Yes! I ran my last marathon in the pouring rain!

    I don’t think I’ll do it again, but I’m glad I raced that day and didn’t back out.

  • Holly @ The Runny Egg August 5, 2011, 3:23 pm

    The forecast for my marathon in June was 50 degrees and rain — thankfully the rain stayed away but it was definitely cold!

  • Ell August 5, 2011, 3:24 pm

    I did a half marathon in the rain. It was very different. It’s hard to see when it is pouring!
    Be careful out there girlie, water might not hurt BUT falling does!!!!

  • Kristie August 5, 2011, 3:25 pm

    Rock it girl! I’ve never done a tri in the rain but I have biked 8 miles home in the rain before. As long as you take it a little slower and are a alert – really a lot of it is mental. If you are comfortable with the speed you are going, you will ride more calmly.

  • Emily August 5, 2011, 3:26 pm

    My first half marathon was in the pouring rain for the first 3 miles, talk about overwelmed! But then it stopped and made for an interesting story 🙂

  • Jess@atasteofconfidence August 5, 2011, 3:27 pm

    I can definitely understand why you were nervous about biking in the rain. It doesn’t seem like fun!

  • erin August 5, 2011, 3:28 pm

    I ran the fitness women’s half in 2010 in the POURING rain. and i ran the entire thing. it was helpful because I basically couldn’t feel if i was hurting in my legs. And i had to be smart about making sure i had the proper fuel. i was FREEZing afterwards. and i rocked my pr. but would i do it again. probably not.

  • Theresa @ActiveEggplant August 5, 2011, 3:30 pm

    I once ran an adventure race in a horrible thunderstorm. The event organizers told us to “race at your own risk” because of all the lightning & my sister and I were stupid enough to do it! (We figured we paid the entry fee & drove all the way there so we might as well get our money’s worth!) It was equally the most fun and most idiotic thing I’ve ever done! Seriously, at one point I felt like I should lay down flat on the ground because the hair on my neck was standing up & I thought I was about to get struck by lightning. (Thank god I didn’t.) But…Would I do it again – YES!!!
    I love cycling, so cycling in the rain doesn’t scare me. I think your dad is right – just take it slower on turns & give extra time for braking. Think of it as a fun new challenge!

  • Taylor @ Crumbs Don't Count August 5, 2011, 3:31 pm

    Haha, reminds me of the book “The Art of Racing in the Rain”.

    I have never raced in the rain, but i LOVE running in the rain. Makes me feel like a kid again!

  • katie @ KatieDid August 5, 2011, 3:32 pm

    I’ve never experienced biking in the rame but I have to say running in the rain is one of my favorite things of all time. I feel so inspired and everyone else thinks I’m crazy but I love it! Your gonna rock it, and be SO happy you decided to tough it out!

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife August 5, 2011, 3:33 pm

    ahaha. I loved that book (art of racing in the rain)!! <–reminded me of it.

    I have raced part of a marathon in the rain. It was cold and WET. But then it cleared….so maybe yours will too?!

    GOOD luck!

  • Sarah August 5, 2011, 3:36 pm

    so frustrating! hope the weather holds up for you!

    i did my first half marathon in may and the weather was so horrible. the race was along the chicago lakefront…just an out and back on the lake path. it was raining the whole time and so windy. the first half was great because the wind was at my back but the second i turned around i felt like i was being pushed backwards. the whole second half the rain got heavy and the wind was pretty much a constant 30mph in our faces with larger gusts. i finished though and did not walk once…i was determined after all that training! i was so cold that i hardly drank any water which probably is why i felt like hell the next few days. whoops.

  • Cindy @ The Flipping Couple August 5, 2011, 3:38 pm

    That was the exact forecast for my sister in law’s outdoor wedding two weeks ago. And you know what? Not a drop of rain…until 10 minutes after they left the wedding. It was awesome. So – I believe in miracles!! Good luck with your race.

  • Alaina August 5, 2011, 3:40 pm

    I’ve run 2 5k’s in the rain. The first was awful because I was still a new runner and made the mistake of wearing cloth sweatpants. The second time was a few weeks ago and it was the best! We had been in a heat wave for so long that this rain took it all away. It felt great. 🙂

  • Ashley O. @ The Vegetable Life August 5, 2011, 3:40 pm

    My first HM is sunday and its supposed to pour…. I’m starting to freak out a bit too.

  • Veronica (Run Write Repeat) August 5, 2011, 3:43 pm

    my dad ran in the pouring rain and hail for this year’s LA Marathon. it was horrible to be a spectator for that race, let alone run in that weather!

  • Erin August 5, 2011, 3:44 pm

    Oooh, good luck! I’ve never biked in the rain and, like you, I’m a little scared to.

    However, I’ve run in the rain quite a few times, including one half marathon. I’ve never been so wet in my life!

  • Debbie August 5, 2011, 3:46 pm

    I totally agree about riding in the scares me to death. I worked a triathlon once that had to be canceled. It was about 40 degrees and pouring. The fear was hypothermia, not falling, but it really was the only choice.

    Good luck in your event. May the weather gods smile down on you. 🙂

  • Julie August 5, 2011, 3:46 pm

    When I did my tri it was half raining/half snowing. One thing you should also think about is that the bike will be a lot colder in the rain. You might want to think about gloves? I don’t know farenheit, so I could not tell if the forecast was warm or cold, but being wet for the whole race makes you a lot colder! When I did my tri people were actually faceplanting when they got off their bikes, because their feet were numb.

  • Rae August 5, 2011, 3:47 pm

    In transition, bring two grocery bags and put your bike stuff in one and your run stuff in the other. Both will stay dry and you can just dump the bag on your towel for T1 or T2. I think you should focus on how fun the run will be in the rain 😛

  • ellen August 5, 2011, 3:48 pm

    yeah — good call on going. i had one (an hour and a half away… and i don’t have a car, yikes!) in which the weather seemed fine. there had been flash flooding the day or two prior. day of the race, they deemed the river too high/fast/dangerous to swim. turned into a run/bike/run. as i was on the bike it turned into crazy lightning/thunder/POURING. they pulled us off the course.

    safety is always the race director’s priority. hopefully yours will go on! good luck, lady 🙂

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga August 5, 2011, 3:49 pm

    I’ve raced in the rain. Everyone is forced to just slow down so you don’t fall and adapt for the conditions. Not as much fun to do in the rain but it is possible. All things considered, wish it was sunny out, of course!

  • Anna August 5, 2011, 3:52 pm

    I’ve never raced in the rain, but I’ve biked and ran in the rain on my own plenty of times. I HATE HATE biking in the rain for the slipperiness factor (really makes me more careful while driving!)

    My tip for biking in the rain – pulse your breaks a few times before you actually need to stop/slow. The friction will help dry some of the water from the break pads, which will make it easier to actually use them.

  • FreedomUnearthed August 5, 2011, 3:54 pm

    I have not run in the rain (a bit of a tongue twister) but I’ve cheered for my wife Karin@allpointswhole in the rain, snow and freezing temperatures. It would have to be the apocalypse to keep them from racing. If you read her story then you know she kept biking 25 miles after she broke her right wrist!

  • Laura August 5, 2011, 3:55 pm

    I understand calling the swim because of lightning, but why do they call it for just rain? (I don’t really know anything about Tris… yet)

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 11:26 am

      I’m not sure, actually! I think just for rain!

  • Poe at ThePoeLog August 5, 2011, 3:56 pm

    Yikes! I just saw this headline on CNN: Flooding in Charlotte prompts evacuations, motorist rescues

    Good luck and be careful!

  • Poe at ThePoeLog August 5, 2011, 4:01 pm

    Oh, and as to weather I’ve raced in the rain, my first half marathon was this past May in Chicago. Freak weather meant 30-ish degrees with wind gusts of 20-30 miles per hour. Around the lake. Which meant waves AND rain crashing over us for 2 plus hours. Pure hell.

  • Army Amy* August 5, 2011, 4:01 pm

    I’m fixing to run a half marathon in triple digit temps, so the rain doesn’t look too bad from here, but I know what a bummer it is when you prepare for a race and the weather gets in the way. I’m crossing my fingers that you have smooth sailing!*

  • Dani August 5, 2011, 4:02 pm

    My first half (in May), it rained. I was actually thankful for it… it kept me cool and made it seem as though I wasn’t as sweaty. I have my 2nd one in October, and I’m secretly hoping for another rainy day! LOL

  • Kristen (inspiredbydooce) August 5, 2011, 4:03 pm

    I’ve never done any biking in the rain but I did a half marathon in the POURING rain…man were we wet. By the end of it, my shoes weighed about 5 pounds each, but it was actually a fun race. My favourite part? When “Walking on Sunshine” came on my ipod. I laughed out loud.

  • Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me August 5, 2011, 4:04 pm

    I bought nutritional yeast today! Mmmm sauce will be tried before the weekends end!

  • Emma August 5, 2011, 4:10 pm

    My first marathon was the LA marathon this past March- there were flash floods, the heavy road markers along the sides blew over and were floating down the road-turned-river, 1000 people were checked for hypothermia and 36 were hospitalized for it. It definitely made for rough running, but it just made me feel like that much more of a bad ass!

  • Lindsey August 5, 2011, 4:26 pm

    I did a sprint tri a couple of years ago on the Cape in Massachusetts. The remnants of a hurricane had actually passed by the night before and completely flooded good portions of the bike course. The organizers decided to cancel the bike portion and just have an aquathalon (swim, run) after replacing the buoys on the short swim course. I’m sure the race organizers will make a decision to ensure that the participants are safe. Good luck either way!

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 11:25 am

      Sounds exciting 🙂 I’d rather swim than bike!!!

  • Errign August 5, 2011, 4:28 pm

    It’s still sunny in Asheville 🙂 Good luck Caitlin!

  • Cindy August 5, 2011, 4:31 pm

    I did a 5 mile race in cold and pouring rain. I had never run in the rain and was not prepared. I wore layers to stay warm and that was a bad idea, as I couldn’t move at ALL. I ended up being the last person in, way after they closed down the race barriers and directions and had no idea where I was- I never got my time either b/c I couldn’t find the finish line! It was a nightmare!

    Good luck! At least it will be warm for you!

  • Kiran @ August 5, 2011, 4:38 pm

    I’ve never raced in rain before. But with the current yucky weather, I’d do it in a heartbeat 🙂

  • Ali @ Ali Runs August 5, 2011, 4:41 pm

    You got this!! I enjoy running in the rain a lot! Hopefully the bike leg is okay, but as long as you are aware then it should be alright. Good luck!!

  • Audrey August 5, 2011, 4:46 pm

    Put your running shoes with a dry pair of socks into a plastic grocery bag, if it’s going to be real wet, double bag. Even if you are riding in your running shoes, the dry socks will make all the difference! (even if they get soggy later)

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 11:24 am

      Very good tips!

  • Mary (A Merry Life) August 5, 2011, 4:50 pm

    I agree with Ashley! Don’t be a baby. Hehe.

    I did my first tri in pouring rain. The swim and run weren’t bad but the bike wasn’t fun. I was FREEZING and had to slow my pace a bit to account for the slick roads. I hated that because the bike was my best leg but I really didn’t want to fall.

    They won’t do the race if it isn’t safe. So if the race happens you need to be there! Good luck!! 🙂

  • Lindsay August 5, 2011, 4:59 pm

    I have rowed in the rain in races and it sucked!! I always hated rowing in the rain in college 🙁

    But, when I worked for TNT I had a group of about 30 triathletes at the Austin Triathlon. They had each raised $4000 and the morning of the race there were TORRENTIAL downpours. Firs they cancelled the swim and everyone was super bummed. Then they cancelled the entire race. We were staying at the official race hotel and so the decisions were being made and announced right there in real time in the lobby. I literally had 30 angry participants staring at me in the lobby. Some even cried. They did all that fundraising, all that training. Their bikes were shipped and already set up in transition and they were downstairs dressed and ready to go at like 4:30 am and the race got cancelled right there. Of course it was not my fault or TNT’s fault, but I definitely had to deal with a lot of angry/frustrated individuals that morning. It was horrible…

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 11:24 am

      Ugh that sounds like a nightmare! Poor you! And poor TNTers. 🙁

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) August 5, 2011, 5:06 pm

    I ran a race in the rain twice. It was so squishy but nice and warm so the rain was refreshing. I would be a bit worried about the swim and bike but after training that hard and paying the fee I wouldn’t want to back out.

  • Melissa @ TryingToHeal August 5, 2011, 5:12 pm

    I did a 10k three years ago in rain that was coming down in sheets. puddles turned into lakes and i had soap foaming on my shorts because apparently i hadn’t washed all the soap out of them! i was all nice and bubbly!

  • Mary @ stylefyles August 5, 2011, 5:20 pm

    hahaha omg….I used to live in CT and sports in the rain were no big deal. I’m not gonna lie, I’ve turned int a bit of a softie since I’ve been in LA. I really can’t imagine running in such a downpour. Light sprinkle? Sure.

    Good luck!

  • Chelsea August 5, 2011, 5:27 pm

    I’ve ran once in the rain before. It was such an amazing experience till the lightening struck next to me..Than I hauled butt home! Good luck though!

  • Johanna B August 5, 2011, 5:31 pm

    The only race I’ve done in the rain was a 5K. It was pouring rain as only New Orleans can rain. It was fun – but there was no bike involved…

  • Molly @ RDexposed August 5, 2011, 6:12 pm

    That’s my dad’s favorite time to cycle-in the rain! I love running in the rain myself. It’s almost like a cleanse!

  • Stephanie August 5, 2011, 6:14 pm

    Oh, send some of that rain to Texas, please! 🙂 It’s been 30+ straight days of 100+ degree with no rain and I would love love love some rain!

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 11:20 am

      **rain dance**

  • Mel August 5, 2011, 6:26 pm

    I haven’t had to race in rain, but it did snow all during my first triathlon. I felt really unsafe going down hill on my bike, so I just went slow and it was fine!

  • Hillary August 5, 2011, 6:35 pm

    Ugh, what miserable conditions. I hope it miraculously clears up for you before tomorrow—tris seem like enough work without having to prepare for a thunderstorm!

  • Gina @ Running to the Kitchen August 5, 2011, 6:36 pm

    I’ve run a race in the rain which was actually quite nice (it wasn’t pouring, just “spitting”). Hope it holds out for you. At least it’s scattered thunderstorms as of now. They can be hit or miss as you know!

  • Angela @ MyPinkyToes August 5, 2011, 6:50 pm

    Rain or shine, you will do awesome tomorrow! I can’t wait to hear, er, read another race recap from you!!!

  • cj weaber @ August 5, 2011, 7:41 pm

    The only race I have ever done in the rain was a 5k at Disney World and because it was so hot, the rain was welcome! Good luck tomorrow!

  • Lauren August 5, 2011, 8:04 pm

    I hate running in the rain because I think it kills my mentality more than anything. I definitely commend you for taking the challenge and killing it!

  • Winnie August 5, 2011, 8:07 pm

    One of my favourite running quotes ever: “There is no such thing as bad weather, just soft people.” 🙂

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 11:16 am

      Nice. So true.

  • J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) August 5, 2011, 8:25 pm

    I like your lunch!

  • Amy August 5, 2011, 8:35 pm

    You better swim! What am I going to do if you’re not swimming!??

  • Luv What You Do August 5, 2011, 8:37 pm

    My first tri in Lake Geneva Wisconsin was rainy and stormy. I wasn’t sure if I wanted it to get canceled or not, but then decided with all the training I put it, I would finish it even in a tornado. They moved up the swim times (to let everyone go before the weather got worse). I was totally un prepared for transitions anyways (so clueless!) and I didn’t know if I was wet from the lake, rain, or sweat. Luckily, it wasn’t too rainy during the bike ride, but the run was a trail run. I finished exhausted, exhilarated and completely covered in mud to cheers from my family who may have been more wet than I was. The ironic part was after we ate chatted and finally packed up the cars to head home, the sun came out.

    Best of luck tomorrow! It is another adventure and great story for your blog and your life!

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 11:14 am

      That sounds like a pretty fun race to me 🙂

      • Luv What You Do August 7, 2011, 11:23 am

        I must have enjoyed myself because next week will be my fourth tri. It was an amazing expereince! I think my brother, mom, and I may try to do that race (RAM’s Bigfoot) together next summer.

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey August 5, 2011, 8:41 pm

    I have never raced in the rain before, but I kind of think it would be fun! Good luck!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin August 5, 2011, 9:20 pm

    Not gonna lie, I think racing in the rain would totally freak me out. But I guess rain is better than hot and humid, right? 😀

  • Lorin August 5, 2011, 9:24 pm

    One of my friends from school ran in the LA marathon this past year when it was raining and freezing and he qualified for Boston. He said he felt like he was about to die, but people also got hypothermia in that same race so I think it was a cold storm which hurt as well.

  • Kelly August 5, 2011, 9:39 pm

    I’m so sorry your race is going to be rainy but I am so jealous you are getting rain. I’m in Texas and we are suffering. We’ve had 52 straight days of over 100 degree heat and almost 90 days without rain. It is horrible. Our power grid is tapped out and they are threatening us with rolling power outages. I would glady take all your rain.

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 11:14 am

      Ugh! That sounds like terrible weather. Doing a rain dance for Texas.

  • Annie@stronghealthyfit August 5, 2011, 9:54 pm

    You’re so badass! I ran a 5k in a downpour in high school, and ever since then I can tell myself it’s no big deal to run in the rain. I actually enjoy it sometimes, as long as it’s not a crazy storm!

  • Michelle August 5, 2011, 10:02 pm

    Regardless of the weather, have an awesome race tomorrow! We can’t wait to hear about it.

  • Christina August 5, 2011, 10:02 pm

    This is so funny- I’m doing a tri tomorrow and it will be rainy and cool and yucky and I thought, I should look on HTP! It will inspire me! Glad you decided to do it or I might have bailed! I did a bike race in the rain once, but it wasn’t raining too hard. Had drizzle in a tri once but not too bad. At least if it rains you will look all muddy and hardcore at the end!

    • CaitlinHTP August 7, 2011, 11:13 am

      🙂 How did it go??

      • Christina August 7, 2011, 9:15 pm

        Ha, it was MISERABLE! Stopped thundering before the race so they didn’t call it but it poured rain during the swim and for 2/3 of the bike. Then just drizzle. At least I know I’ll never race in worse conditions.
        Congrats on your awesome race!

  • Randa August 6, 2011, 12:15 am

    Just did a tri last weekend that was postponed by nearly an hour due to a thunderstorm. Wish I had thought to bring a plastic bag to put my transition stuff in, too! I did think ahead enough while setting up transition in the rain to place my socks in my shoes sole side up inside my backpack to help limit their sogginess. Seemed to work a little!
    Good luck tomorrow! rain or shine 🙂

    I’m very used to the rain leaving in Oregon, although I have never had any desire to actually stay out in it for any particular length of time either… 😉

    You’ll rock it!

    I did my first tri this spring and was terrified of biking in the rain. Of course guess what happened – as soon as I mounted my bike it started raining and continued to rain until I was running. It made me stronger and was nice to know I conquered a few fears that day!
