Morning run with ligntning

When I moved back to Illinois from Arizona, I assumed that I wouldn’t be able to run outside every day.  I have been pleasantly surprised to find that the extreme weather swings of this great state really don’t keep me from running outside.  I chose to go to the gym last winter for a few runs- especially during a bad ice storm- but overall, I really can run outside every day.  I have decent rain gear but really only get it out during cold rains, which I have only run in a handful of times in the last year and a half.  Usually part of the day will have no precipitation if that is what I am looking to avoid.  I really do enjoy a good run in a cool rain.  Cold rain is a different story but I can often avoid it by shifting my run to a different time of day.  I did run this morning in a decent breeze with lightning in the distance.  I heard some distant rumbles as I wrapped up my slow 3 mile run but I didn’t feel any immediate threat.  Overall, not a bad morning for a run!
