Yesterday, I got an facebook message from a friend who’s lost over 50 pounds on Impossible Abs and was having a hard time doing that day’s workout.
Michael: I want to run, but it’s freaking raining out….what do I do?
Michael: It’s pouring…like…literally downpour.
Me: Well did you want to run?
Michael: Ya, but only because it was convenient for me…I get it.
Me: You asked
5 minutes later I got this:
Doing sprints in a downpour. I have a love/hate relationship with @joelrunyon …
