I hear rain is coming and get all excited!! I love running in the rain!
course I will have to check back in and let you know how it feels this winter... I may not agree if it means freezing eye lashes :P
Old thread but I havent ran in the rain since high school. I went today in the rain and I dunno what I was thinking =) I guess rain running is for some people and I am not one of those
I love running in a light misty rain. I feel like I can go forever... it energizes me.
I ran in the snow several times back in February-March. Once it was freezing rain and sleet. It was a little too slick and I decided that was not a good idea.
If it's a total downpour, I'll wait for it to pass.
One cold day I ran in rain and got soaked. My clothes really got heavy in the rain and it made my run harder, so be sure to choose non-absorbent clothes.
Also be careful because your feet may be more prone to blisters when they are wet.
Once I ran after it rained... a truck drove by. He could have easily moved over a couple of feet and avoided a puddle, but he went right through the deepest part and I ended up drenched.
And to the person who suggested running without glasses. I am EXTREMELY nearsighted. It would be disastrous for me to attempt to running without my glasses.
