Tip 2: Have a second layer.

Unless you’re running in tropical rainstorms somewhere near the equator, water is cold. Accept the fact that your top layer is going to get wet. If you’re comfortable jogging in waterproof pants or a rain jacket, great. If not, wear a heat-trapping under-layer and a second layer on top. When you’re soaked, you can take it off and wrap it around your hydration belt or waist. Avoid cotton at all costs.

  1. I LOVE running in the rain. All those mossy smells and fresh, wet wind! It’s the best! I just had a wet run this past Saturday! Now, let’s make this clear: is this a guide for road runs or trails runs? Cause running on muddy hills is kinda a suicide mission….
