    Nick and I lounged in the Mount Wippamunk base lodge in front of the wood-burning stove. Our sopping-wet jackets and pants hung from hooks on the wall. Rain slashed the windows. But we didn't care about the foul weather; we got in some good runs.

    What does this phrase 'got in some good runs' mean? Thank you in advance!

    It may be a reference do something that happened previously.

    Had they been skiing?

    Then they don't care about the weather because their skiing is done, and they had a nice time of it, they enjoyed it, it was pleasant.

    When you run or ski, you can have a good run.
    When you bike, you can have a good ride.
