If you train through the winter in Vancouver you will have to train in rain. I didn't expect to face this so early in the season but as I got ready to run last night there it was. Rather than complain about it I decided to make the most of it and you know what? I remembered that I actually like running in the rain. Why? Here are a few reasons:
-There is something about it that makes me feel a whole lot cooler than I probably am.
-Not very many people are out there, only those serious about their training.
-I like trying to avoid puddles at first, the realization my feet are going to get wet either way and then stomping in puddles after that.
-It just feels cool.
Here is a picture after my run. Hard to tell but I was actually dripping! Love it.
