Good run in the rain

How good was the run in the rain today? Two sherku worth!

The rain was warm and mingled with the sweat. The thoughts found their way almost like the river-lets of water along the roads.

How was your run today?

I love taking a run or jog in the rain! :) I live in Michigan so it's pretty much impossible for me to go out and it not be raining, but you can make the best of any situation. I don't know if you have ever tried it, but one thing I have found that works well is wearing a leg gaiters under your pants while running in the rain. The gaiter helps soak up the water running down you and keeps it out of your shoe. Of course you still get a little water just from sheer contact to the ground, but it does make it a lot better!

I would use something similar for running in deep snow.

If it is warm enough, I prefer to wear as little as necessary to run. The bare legs do well in the rain. And if it was raining that hard, I think I'd find a different day to run. :-)
