–Great mental training – which is very much needed for racing. Gotta love strengthening the body and the mind at the same time.
–They make you feel like a badass. Pretty sure under badassery in the dictionary it says “morning runners who run regardless of the weather”. Or something to that effect.
–It really puts a “WARRIOR” type of spin on your entire day. If you can deal with the wind and rain while running early morning while running – you can handle anything else the day will throw at you.
–If the rain cools things down – which it usually does – it can feel oh so glorious. Especially during the summertime.
–Splashing through puddles! Makes you feel like a kid again.
–POST RUN COFFEE just tastes that much more amazing.
What are some reasons you like (or dislike, hey I don’t discriminate!) running in the rain?!
