Running over the weekend was up and down. I took Friday off, ran 4 miles on Saturday, then took Sunday off.
My Fiance is preparing for The Phoenix Half Marathon this Saturday, I'm super proud of her since she has progressed from the 5K, to the 10K, and will now be braving the half marathon. The reason I bring this up is because she has been monitoring the weather report and there is about a 40% chance for rain on race day. First, as her pit crew, the kids and myself have to figure out the finish line as we love to be there when she crosses. Second, I have never ran a race in the rain and have no advice to provide.
So, those of you who are battling the elements all the time, any feedback would be appreciated!!
What kind of weather elements do you battle on a regular basis?? What suggestions do you have for running int he rain??
Plan for me is to run a couple train miles on lunch then some easy miles later this evening.
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
