I am writing this because it is raining outside and I don't want to go for a run. I will, of course, but any delay, no matter how small ...
Did a quick search for running in the rain because a) I live where it rains. A lot. and b) As mentioned above, I am stalling.
I am about to violate every single suggestion that running websites make for running in the rain.
1) Don't wear a rain jacket. Well, since I almost always wear a rain jacket when I run, I probably will wear it now that it's raining.
2) Don't wear cotton. Unfortunately my sweatshirt that I run in is made of cotton and since it is cold outside ...
3) Don't wear cotton socks, wear wool. Don't have any lightweight wool socks so I guess I'll wear the cotton ones that I always wear.
4) Wear shoes designed for running in the rain. I have two pairs of runners and they are identical. Are they good for running in the rain? No idea but they are what I have.
I was going to insert a picture here showing someone running in the rain, but a quick internet search provided thousands of pictures of women running in the rain (not representative of me) and a few of ridiculously fit people running without shirts which means that it obviously isn't winter in the Pacific NW where they are running. (Plus I'm not ridiculously fit, I'm a middle aged, slightly overweight type working to stay reasonably fit and healthy)
Enough stalling. Here I go.
