You know you’re a runner when…

you get excited to go for a run even when the sky looks like this

By the time I got home the dark line in the sky was toeing the perimeter of my block and I eagerly threw on my running shorts and hit the pavement. I managed to run a whole four miles rain free and made it back to my apartment to stretch thoroughly.
