Ok, I’ll admit it. I’m a fair weather runner/walker/exerciser. I don’t run outdoors when its raining. That’s what they make treadmills for. I’ve been extremely blessed on race day – I’ve never had to run a race in the rain. I had a race cancelled for rain and rescheduled for the next week. I’ve run in cold, wind, and finished a race and had it rain immediately after, but never run a race in the rain.
However, it seems my day will finally be here!
On Saturday I’ll be walking (lets be honest, I won’t be running after not training!) the Crawlin Crab 5k. Right now, the forecast doesn’t look so good. Assuming they don’t cancel, I’ll be doing this race in the rain.
I know that I’ll need to check a dry bag so that I have dry clothes afterward, but to be honest, I’m pretty clueless about everything else!
Any advice for how to dress? How do I avoid blisters if my socks and shoes are soaked?
