Is it weird that I like running in the rain?๐Ÿ˜

Just got back from completing week 6 run 1...it's very cold & wet out there...but I enjoyed it ๐Ÿ˜Š am I a total loon or is there anybody else who is willing to admit such a crazy notion?๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

I like running in the rain too. I find it a good distraction and letโ€™s be honest we wouldnโ€™t walk in the rain for the sake of it so itโ€™s a nice way to be with nature too.

Iโ€™m the same. I canโ€™t really explain it, but I am enjoying running in wet, cold wintery conditions at the moment too.

I ran whIlst it was snowing last night, and whilst that was a little treacherous underfoot, it was great!

Saying that, Iโ€™m sure I will enjoy running on long summer nights too!

Hi! I am yet to try running in the rain! Itโ€™s really weird that I started C25K in September and it has never rained on any of my runs!! (I will probably get absolutely soaked next time Iโ€™m out!!) In Scotland so itโ€™s very strange! I donโ€™t think I will mind it too much... be better than icy and wind!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Everyone likes it Iโ€™d say๐Ÿ™‚ Important to wear the right gear though as if you finish your run aways from home you want to be warm You can quickly get chilled if youโ€™re wet through.

I recently got a more expensive run jacket only to find it lets more rain in than my cheapo Aldi one. Tsk โ˜น๏ธ

I went to my local Park Run this morning in the rain and there were still over 200 people running :D

I love running in the rain - but completely agree with misswobble about the right clothes. I keep my body warm & dry with a light breathable jacket- everything else is happily wet! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I love running in the rain, and very rarely wear a jacket for it :)

I had my first experience of it at the weekend too and weirdly loved it, having always thought it must be awful! There's definitely a feeling of freedom and a kind of exhilaration. I also noticed that there were more runners out than normal that evening too!
