The view from my office window is less than stellar today.
Apparently, this whole El Nino thing is not a joke.
Now that the rainy winter season is officially upon us, I thought an impromptu post about running in the rain is in order.
Up until about a month ago, I REFUSED to run in the rain.
I thought to myself, “What in the heck do runners in Seattle do like 95% of the year?”.
They freaking run in the rain, man.
So, I decided to stop being a wimp.
I ran in the rain.
And it didn’t suck.
It didn’t suck at all, actually.
I really didn’t.
It was actually really fun!
I loved knowing that there weren’t many people or cars out, because everyone was terrified of the rain.
Annnnnd it made me feel pretty awesome knowing that nothing could stop me… not even the rain!
Do you hate running in the rain?
I have a fool-proof plan to help you get out there.
- Get a waterproof hat or a hat with a long brim.
2. Get a rainproof running jacket
3. Be prepared to get wet.
4. Suck it up.
5. Walk outside.
6. Embrace the rain.
6. Pat yourself on the back.
