I went for a run in the rain today. If you plan ahead and wear the right clothes it is not so bad. But, I won't go if it is a downpour, I will wait it out or hit the treadmill.

Where I live now it seems to rain constantly, practically everyday. And now that I've started marathon training I'm going to have to be running in it, ugh.

But one of the cool things here is that rain barrels seem to be a big thing. Everyone has them and they are in the main part of the home improvement store, not shunted off to an unused corner of the garden section collecting dust. And they are big, at least 6 feet high. The house I'm renting has one, but I just discovered it is not hooked up for some reason so I need to figure out how to do that so I can be ready for the spring.

I had a rain barrel back in MI and it was very handy for keeping my seedlings, blueberries and other plants watered, without having to turn on the taps and pay the water company.

You are right in what you say. I can well imagine if you love something enough...you'll do it in the rain. emoticon

There's a preacher that we listen to used to say, whatever you love, you'll be willing to do it in the rain. What do you love? Do love to run? You'll do it in the rain. Exercise? Go to the gym? Shop? Go to church to worship? When you think about it, there's truth to that.

I am a fair weather runner. I don't go out in the rain and cold for me is anything below 60F.

And I lve in Michigan, so go figure. One of these days I'll get around to moving south.

Well living in Southern California I don't worry about that too much and especially this year. But I would venture out in the rain. But have to be careful where I go since I like to hike. Places I hike you can see where the mountain has slid down here and there when it has rained and rocks can come loose too. So that part is a concern for me. I seem not to like the cold to much and do become kind of wimpy when it gets cold though. Cold for me is somewhere in the 50 or 60 degree mark. And to think both of my parents are Canadian. You would think I would have better blood for the cold.

I'm amazed when I see people dawning on their rain gear, and maybe even their little dogs with their little raincoats...and out they go...rain, rain, wind and more rain.
I'm curious as to how many of you are brave enough to go out in the rain and walk, jog, run or whatever...and if not...how many of you say..."No Way"...and resort to indoor activies.
As for me...I have to admit...I'd rather stay inside where it's warm and cozy. ha ha.
So...Let's post here and see what everyone does and why. emoticon
