Running Wet

So I committed a minor felony the other day-the irrigation ditch next to my running route was a bit low (maybe 6" deep) and had a clear, sandy bottom. So I had to run in it-and it was awesome. It was about 5 foot deep, and the thick grass rose high enough on either side I couldn't see out, and it wandered back and forth. Anyone else do that?

I also don't mind getting my shoes wet and heavy unless I'm really tired-that really bothers some of my buddies. It actually helped my 100 yard dash time once-because I had to fling my super heavy feet way out there, and it compensated for my once shorter steps.

    thats not that bad, i used to run on a set of active train tracks on a regular basis.  There were no tresspassing signs all over the place, but dammit, it was a lot more scenic than the road route.  Only had 1 or 2 train encounters, but their maximum cruising speed was only a little faster than mine. 

    whatever it takes to break up the monotany
