Strange as it might seem, I started running at the beginning of May but today was the first day I've been out in the rain! It think I got drizzled on once or twice when I was in the UK in the summer, but this was "proper rain". Having said that, I had to choose my moment to go out - managed to avoid the thunder storm (didn't think that would be a very good idea) and got back about 10 minutes before the rain turned into a torrential downpour.
1. I think I need a cap.
2. The roads here get very slippery so I was slower than normal because I was being cautious, especially on the steep downhill bits.
3. This was the first time I've worn anything more than a t-shirt on my top half, and even though my waterproof running jacket is VERY light, I still needed to take it off half way round and tie it round my waist. Perhaps I should have taken the sleeves off and worn it as a gilet?
4. The locals have probably had their view of me as a weird foreigner well and truly reinforced.
