Runner's dilemma: it's raining. Should I go for my run, or not?

running when it's raining
I heard it while I was still lying in my warm and comfortable bed.

It was raining.

And not just a little drizzle. If I hadn't planned going for a run, I would have appreciated the sound of the rain spattering across my bedroom window.

But I did want to go for my daily run.

So I was not amused.

When in doubt put on your running shoes


When in doubt you should always put on your running clothes and shoes. That makes everything easier. So that's what I did.

Once I did that, I stepped outside.

It really wás raining... And I thought to myself:

'Should I skip my run? Or should I just go?'

The answer to the question


In the end the answer to this question is easy. Because, like the Swedes of was it the Danish say:

'There's no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing.' 

So I went running.

In the rain.

Because I won't melt or anything. I'll just get wet.

And that's alright.
