Mark H Well since signing up for this challenge, I've run in frosty and icy conditions, I've run in fog and in a light drizzle, BUT it hasn't rained yet so it's still on the to do list. I'm sure there'll be plenty of opportunity to run in the rain, but today its 13 degrees Celsius and sunny blue skies
It is very easy to put off the scheduled run because it starts to rain – but until you have done it you don’t know what you are missing. Get out there and savour this life giving element.

“I started out with a rainproof jacket on - but after a warm up the rain almost ceased to be an issue, the jacket came off and apart from having cold hands about 1km in it was all good after 2km and I hardly noticed the rain! :-)”
