Running in the Rain

Odds are there’s a lot of little things holding you back from doing what you want to do. It’s not always one big obstacle, it’s little inconveniences that make you wait until tomorrow.

In today’s video post I’m encouraging you to stop waiting and start doing – even if it means running in the rain.

    Love this, Matt. You’re right – you gotta just do it! I wrote about running in the rain last month (I think you commented on that post). I call it getting out the door. Once you do that, the running (or anything else) is easy. We just have to overcome the hurdle of our mind. Good stuff!

    Uh, love your kitchen! Butcher block countertops? Subway tile? Italian style cabinets? Yes please. And yes, I’m with you on the running too :) Today however was 80 and sunny in DC, and was absolutely perfect running weather. Hey, I used to live in Wisconsin so I get to brag about good weather now.

      Hah – thank the person we’re renting from, I wish we could claim credit for all the stylish stuff in our kitchen…

    I love the analogy in this video post, Matt. There’s a point where you just have to power through and do it or you will just keep putting it off until it is too late.

    I like this post! Especially because I have a few things I’ve been putting off, saying to myself “I’ll do it when work slows down, or when I have more free time, or blah blah.” And because it has been raining all damn day yesterday and today. So nice post.

    My question to you is: what were you listening to while you were running in the rain?

      Mostly Nine Inch Nails and Massive Attack yesterday. Good ‘in the zone’ music…

    So true, Matt! I’m the same way – I have to just get out the door and DO IT. I’ve learned to actually kind of like running in the rain, as long as it’s not actually sleet. And at the first sign of lightning, I stay home. But you feel very bad-ass after running into what most people are hiding from.

      Agreed RE: running in the rain – I’m a big fan. Thanks for coming by, as always, Crysta. How are things up in Chicago? Miss you guys!

    Point taken Matt. My philosophy is: Yes. Suit up. Run in the rain. But no need to make it your hill run that day. Poetic, right?
