Cold November Rain

We have had rain on and off the past few days and  I have had to pick and choose which part of the day to go running based on how the clouds look.  This weekend, rather than wait for nighttime, I went  out in the afternoon. 

Last night I thought the rain was over.  I was wrong.  It is getting colder at night but not too cold yet.   I wore my usual running outfit.  Shorts, T-Shirt, and a visor,  However, I did wear my gloves because my hands get cold first.

About 5 minutes into my run, it started to drizzle.  I thought about turning around and going home, but I decided to keep going.  I figured I can always do 3 miles and call it a night.  I passed a few other runners and walkers who were out also caught off guard by the change in the weather.  Most were not dressed for the rain.  The ones who were out not to exercise gave me looks that I must seem crazy to them.

At the turnaround spot, the drizzle stopped and I decided to go for 4 miles.  5 minutes later, the skies opened up into a steady light rain.  I got soaked.  It was cold.  It was wet. It was fun.
