Short day at work today so I went for a nice half marathon run.  The rain was coming down pretty good and the wind was a little chilly as well.  I ran around the high school and kept it pretty easy today.  I didn't enjoy the rain too much but that is life.  I survived and am able to talk about it.  I got drenched driving the scooter home though.  Rainy days make me really not want to have a scooter.

On a side note about the beauty of owning a scooter, I went to Flying J to get gas just like everyone else.  I had $2 in my wallet and went in to pay the clerk.  She said I have to at least pay $4 or I can't fill up.  I told her I have never heard that "law" before and on lighter terms, it would probably cost less than $2 to fill up.  They finally let me pay for my gas but said to only put $2 in.  I ended up topping off my tank at $1.95!  I love my scooter when I fill up for gas.  Keep the change folks!  The drive home was still wet though.
