Thought I'd share this with everyone. I forced myself out for my first post-grad run last night, despite the gloom and drizzle. Ten minutes in, the heavens opened - literally bouncing-off-the-pavement, wipers-on-full-whack kind of rain.
And it was fantastic!
I was running along, grinning like a loon (lucky it was dark I suppose) despite being drenched to the skin with water dripping off my nose. It was honestly the most invigorating, exhilarating experience I've had in a long time, and it's something I'd thoroughly recommend! I also got my fastest 1k split during that period, so I'll be doing a rain dance before all my runs now.
Moral of the story - rain is no excuse not to run. It's fun! Embrace your inner child and give it a go!
