Rainy And 39 Degrees - Isn't That Cold?

When I woke up this morning at 5:00 am to rain and 39 degrees it would have been very easy to crawl right back into bed.  However, knowing that I skipped my run yesterday for more sleep since I had stayed up so late the night before got me up and got me going with very little effort for my 4 mile run this morning.

The steady rain was gone by the time I made it out the door but I was still left with sprinkles throughout the run and lots of puddles left from the last day of raining.  I have run this route many times before so I know right where the water puddles up so I was able to avoid stepping into anything unpleasant.

I am not sure if it is becoming a habit given this past Sundays run, but I once again was overdressed for the weather.  I am not sure about you, but 30 anything and rain sounds like I need to be saying burrrrr.  I dressed for what I thought would be wet and very cold, but it turned out to be damp and sticky.

The run went good, but took a bit more energy than I expected, although I am sure this is probably because of the poor dinner choice I made last night.  I started the first mile off at 9:37 and dropped each mile to end the 4 miles at an 8:17 pace.

Do you ever overdress for your runs based on what the weather says, or maybe your problem is under dressing?
