I waited for my running partner but I knew that he may not show so I didn't wait long. 5:25 I was out the door committed to 4 miles, rain or no rain. The run started off with light rain just like the website said, but a half a mile into my run it started to rain pretty heavily. This continued for about a mile and then tapered off to almost nothing. Another mile went by and the heavy rain returned.... this time it was here to stay.
I ran a good 4 miles, and was absolutely drenched when I walked in the door. I even had to pull the inserts out of my shoes so they will have an attempt at drying before my next run. If there ever is a time that I wouldn't need to shower following a run.... this just may be it.

lol. awww. Usually I love running in the rain... constant refreshment (especially during the summer), but it is quite unpleasant to have squishy running sneaks...ReplyDelete
Yea, running in the rain can be a lot of fun.... but a downpour can grow old quickly!ReplyDelete
My husband taught me a neat trick - put newspaper into your shoes for an hour or so. It will soak up the water. Replace the newspaper as needed until the shoes dry up - they seem to dry out a lot faster...ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tip - I need to go do that now, my shoes are still not completely dry!ReplyDelete
A bit of rain is nice but downpours make you question your sanity!ReplyDelete
I question that everyday.... but I do understand your thought :)ReplyDelete
Looking back I would do it again, but would probably not take my phone or mp3 player. They both made it through fine, but I was concerned at the time.
