Running

What’s a girl-training-for-a-marathon to do?

when the local forecast looks like this? And the Weather.com 10-day forecast shows the exact same thing x 2?

Run in the rain of course! The light rain that our group start in became a downpour at about mile 2. Four miles later, all seven of us were completely drenched. Obviously. And we all agreed it was a great run; fun even. Obviously. We’re nuts. Obviously.

So my question is: Do I have to shower after I run in a rainstorm? For the record, I did this morning. But I have at least 10 more days to experiment. 🙂

P.S. I really do LOVE rain.

    Funny. You're brave, I'm sure I would have fallen.

    Well, I did actually roll my ankle. But that's because it was dark, not because of the rain. I got tripped up in a pot hole of some kind…

    Well, Peak closed out from under me. The women's gym is too far. And running in the rain is more fun. As you'll learn next week. 🙂

    But yes, I do need to figure out another gym situation. 🙂

    Yeah, they kept closing down their gyms one by one without telling ANYONE. It was super sketchy. Stupid Peak.
