Winter has finally arrived. We had our first real rain of the season yesterday. The temperatures are turning colder. Yesterday was the first time I had to wear gloves and a long sleeve shirt to go running. I was trying to time my run for when there was a break in the weather.
Around 5:00pm, it looked like it was starting to clear up over our city. I could see the stars and the moon in part of the sky. However, running when it is wet outside can be dangerous. I have tripped in the past and luckily did not get injured minus a few scrapes.
I knew I was going to run a short route and go a little slower. I am very careful over the crosswalks and painted curbs as these are slippery when wet. I thought about extending my run to 4 miles, but then about halfway it started to drizzle. I was not looking to be caught in the rain.
