>Running 101>Running in the Rain
To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire
Any other cautions or advice about running in the rain?
Roads were made for journeys...
Don't forget cars can't see you as well... and probably won't be looking for you. Sorry, that's my mom talking there...
Needs more cowbell!

Forrest, do they make toe covers for running shoes, kind of like what cyclists can wear in the Winter to keep their feet warm? That would be a useful invention--just something to keep the water out from the tops of the shoes...
Speaking of running in cold climates during the Winter months, how do you dress for the weather? I was thinking that I will do layers...polypro tights and shirts, fleece, wind pants, windbreakers, etc. Any specific gear that I should keep an eye out for? I'm even wondering if I might want a pair or trail shoes for Winter--perhaps in a half-size larger to accomodate a thicker sock...?
