As part of my annniversary, I ran a 30 minute recovery run. I was nervous because I thought it was going to ran again. I do not like running in the rain at all so I chose to run close to home. It ended up clearing up and completing my run.

Tommorow's a rest day and another day of looking at homes in Berwyn. I am looking forward to it.
