I went out looking for a waterproof running jacket at the weekend only to be told by the sales person that such a thing does not exist. His explanation: anything that keeps the water out will also keep it in and before you know it you'll be swimming in your own sweat.
So what does everyone on here wear? His suggestion was to invest in a windproof jacket which is apparently much more important, but I can't face the idea of getting soaked to the bone while out on a run. The idea has put me off to the point where I will only venture out when I'm sure it won't rain (and with winter coming, dry days will be few and far between).
Also, for those who love to run in the rain, do you run in all types of rain or just drizzle? I'm finding it hard to imagine myself running when it's pelting down and coming at me horizontally. I don't mind being a bit damp, but don't fancy the thought of being able to ring out my pants when I get home.
All thoughts on rainy running welcome!
