Come Together

I got the total miles in that my training plan called for last week, in spite of cutting my run short again on Saturday. The sky was pretty dark when I headed out the door, and less than a mile in I stopped to put the rain cover on the jogger. By the time I called it quits, I was soaked. I normally love to run in the rain, but it was pretty cold and I wasn't prepared for the combination of cold and wet. If I had remembered a hat and gloves, I probably would have kept going.

That's the thing about us runners. The weather doesn't often stop us. My feelings about cold weather completely changed when I started running. This was one of the things I thought about after Iron Mike suggested a Runnerds Facebook page. If there was going to be a page, there needed to be a definition. And now both are HERE. There isn't much on the page yet, but this isn't my FB page; it's OURS. So spread the word and add your thoughts. Join the discussion. And if you decide to write your own blog post about being a runnerd, let me know so I can put a link to it on here and on the Runnerds FB Page. I'm even thinking about some Runnerds stickers or magnets or key chains or something for our exclusive (meaning anyone can join) little group. So if you have any ideas or can create something awesome (since the best I can do is the simple little logo on the FB page) to put on the sticker, magnet or whatever it happens to be, let me know.

  9. I love running in the rain too. But you are right, this time of year pushing the jogger in the cold/wet make my hands a bit raw without gloves.

    I love Runnerds! Great idea.

  14. You are right, the weather doesn't often stop us but I can add that here (in middle Italy on the sea) the weather never stop us because we live in a good zone.

  17. I don't think it's possible to be any happier after running in the cold rain than you've displayed in your pic. You're awesome.
    But your little bean's expression is just as telling, "Uh Mom, you know it's wet out there, right?"
    Nice job recruiting the runnerds of the world, it is cool that you put in the time to create a way to share their runnerdness.
    I've never had the luxury of a rain cover on the jogger, we usually end up hiding under trees or pavilions until it passes. Or my personal favorite: outrun the Thunderstorm.
