It's Only Water
I don't harbor any negative thoughts about rainy weather. This is usually the time of year when everyone is wishing for a break from the 90-degree heat and humidity, so make the most of the rain. With or without the preceding conditions, you'd be foolish not to run outside in the rain. On paper, it could be your best week of summer training!
Rainy days can often be perfect running conditions for this time of year, knowing that it could be worse. A heat wave, an earthquake, a hurricane, and a week of rain equates to all the more reason never to let the weather dictate your training routine (only tweaks to the pacing/intensity). If you always view Mother Nature as your compadre on a year-round basis, then there's never a reason to let Her dictate your mood.
So, I looking forward to workouts in the rain with the DCRC crew.
Contrary to Jimmy Buffett's advice, we can try to reason with the hurricane season and can run at this pace for a long time.
Pack a hat and then stuff your shoes with paper towels when your done,
