As a runner, learning how to run in the rain is important. You don’t always have to run outside, for example you can choose to take your run indoors to a treadmill or indoor track, but getting experience in the rain, will help you on days where it decides to run during your race. In fact, getting used to rainy runs under various conditions (cold, wind, heat) can be very useful on race day. In this episode, you will learn how to deal with rainy running conditions directly and several tips on how to run in the rain comfortably. All this and more, coming up on today’s podcast.
In this episode, Coach Stephanie and I walk through several tips for how to run in the rain and stay reasonably comfortable in most cases. These tips were things that we have learned over the years living in a part of the country that gets a lot of rain (Ohio) or have picked up from other runners that we have learned from.
