…are not fun to stand in.

This weekend I experienced gusting winds, rainy downpours and all around stormy skies along with the rest of the coaches and athletes in attendance at the AMC meet. You quickly remember the value of being dry and I was happy to have grabbed my trusty silver rain boots at the last minute. I probably would have been 100 times more miserable had I forgotten them, I hate to say it. As always it was a good weekend spent with our team and if you follow me on instagr.am (you have to download the app to do so) you can see the image updates I posted over the weekend.

…cancel photo shoots.

You know I’ve shot in the rain and am not afraid to… but sometimes it’s worth avoiding. Today I had an engagement shoot scheduled for the afternoon but with rain and snow in the forecast it seemed fitting to cancel. Tis the season for engagement sessions and most have a rain backup plan built in just in case we encounter it. The image above from Liz + Matt’s shoot reminds me that color and life will soon come back to the landscape here in New York and today I need that.

…drain my energy.

If I’m going to be honest lately I’ve done an average if not bad job keeping up with training for the triathlon I’m doing this summer. A cold rainy day rarely seems inviting to going running (forget about biking) in and I’m sitting here writing this post knowing that when I’m done I’m going to have to go out in it. The cloudy sky makes me want to curl up by the fire and take a nap like my dogs are doing right now… but after taking yesterday off I have no excuse to not get out there. I should stop putting it off so I’m going to end this post and go for a run. :)
