By Guest

Have you ever tried running while it is raining? Wouldn’t it be an awesome experience to be jogging while raining! Yes, running in rain can be so much fun! However, you will be surprised to find out that there are so many ways to gear up for wet weather runs. So, here are a few tips for running in your best ready-to-get-wet running apparel.

If you have gone out running in wet weather before, its no surprise that you will become wet! , that’s obvious however you Dont have to always take this risk. If you layer up correctly before going on a run you can enjoy your run knowing even if it does rain your safe and most importantly dry. To do this you should look for polypropylene based clothing as it guards you from the rain and your own perspiration. If you decide to go out in normal clothing then you should beware of the fact that if it does rain you should expect shivers, feeling cold, and eventually this can make you ill.

This is why you should make it a point to wear a wind-breaker and water-resistant jacket as part of your running apparel. However, you have to avoid wearing a water-resistant rain slicker as it tends to trap moisture and heat which might eventually lead you to some serious health problems if you continue running on these apparels.

One of the cheapest pieces of equipment brought up in this article is the running hat, you can buy a hat from almost all clothing stalls for a small amount of money. If you’re running when its raining a running hat will reduce the chance of injury as well as increasing the chance of your enjoying your run. The hat will protect water dripping all down your face from your hair into your eyes, mouth, nose, which makes it alot hard to concentrate or have fun.

Wearing to many layers will over heat yourself, to little layers and you will freeze yourself, the wrong material and you will soak in all the water that lands on your. The secret is to always dress for the temperature and weather of the day, checking the weather a day before will generally give you a heads up. If its going to be wet and cold, you will want a few layers of water-resistant clothing, while if its going to be a warm wet day you will want less layers of water-resistant clothing.

The next piece of clothing I recommend getting for wet weather running is reflective striped clothing. This type of clothing is generally used at night, or on days of poor visibility due to heavy rain. Reflective strips increase the chance of other people who could be running, cycling or driving noticing you, which then decreases the chance of you having an accident.

Don’t Mind the Rain, Simply Run and run, runners say the most interesting part of running is when the rain is just about to start. Why? Because the moment you start running, tendency is your body warms up and eventually will enjoy the run despite the rains. One thing good about it is that it gives you the kind of preparation you need for your competitions.

The piece of equipment which always ends up with the most use is your running shoes, the best ways to maintain your running shoes after running in wet condition is to stuff crumpled newspaper into them. This will keep your shoes in good condition while drawing our the moisture away from your soaked shoes.
