I do. And one of them involves rain. I DON’T race in the rain. I don’t run in the rain. Whatever you think about that is fine with me. It is my limit and only I have to be ok with it.
I have lots of BS reasons for not running in the rain, but mainly it is because it isn’t fun. I want to do as much as I can to ensure that my runs are fun. And being wet and clothed and cold and cranky is not fun.
So, tomorrows 10k/7mile race is in doubt for me because it is pouring rain with no sign of stopping.
And it is a trail race. The ONE thing that could motivate me to run is the prospect of ruining my shoes. Which would mean NEW SHOES. But I don’t think it is enough to overcome the limits.
And I don’t want to look like that guy.
