Caught up in a rain Storm

So, I'm trying this whole minimalist/ barefoot running thing to help with better form and I can tell it's working different muscles in my legs, feet, ect. 

It's putting strain on my Achilles' tendon, which is why you have to go super slow, which is frustrating as all get out! Yesterday, I went out for a run and was excited because I was going to be able to move from a half mile to 3/4 of a mile. I know, progress right??? It feels like a complete JOKE!

I knew it was going to start storming soon, but I thought I could miss it. I knew my run wouldn't be long, so I thought I
would get through it and back home before it got nasty.
The wind started to pick up and I knew I was in trouble. I only had a little bit to go, so I wasn't going to give up, so I just kept on going. 

The rain started to fall on my way back and I knew I was in trouble. I threw my phone in my skirt pocket and began hauling to save my phone. Who cares about anything else? Am I right? You SAVE the phone!
This is what I looked like after the rain . Thankfully, I had my minimalist shoes on or I would have a broken toe from all the crazy debris! Look, I even have a leaf on my face, not to be mistaken with a bug!

Q: what crazy weather have you been stuck in?
