If you’ve been running with us since Love Run’s inception, you probably remember the horrible weather we endured our first year. Actually, horrible is an understatement. It was more like the rain from Forrest Gump; little bitty stingin’ rain, and big ol’ fat rain, rain that flew in sideways, and sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath.
Fortunately, that ugly storm didn’t stop us or our athletes from celebrating a successful first Love Run Half Marathon. And while the weather has since been more merciful on us, other races aren’t always so lucky. Sure, rain can be a source of a much needed cool-down during these hot summer days. When it gets to a certain point though, it can not only ruin your favorite gear, it can become straight up painful (i.e. having to finish a race in soaked socks).
If the forecast calls for poor weather on your next big race day, make sure you’re prepared with some waterproof swag!
