South Florida was in a drought until recently when we have switched over to a steady state of rain…this works for me because I had some gear to test out!!
Columbia Sportswear one of my long time favorite companies because I learned about them during my time Journalism School sent me a new waterproof lightweight jacket to test out. First back to the J-School bit…I love this company because they have remained true to their customers and are serious about making AMAZING products. Now on with the jacket...
A. While running the jacket came up to my chin and was either over my chin rubbing me raw or under my chin poking me constantly
B. Wearing the hood which totally kept my head dry kept all my body heat in too and made me overheat.
For me this is going to be the perfect jacket for staying dry on a walk, a hike, a boat, a plane, a train, a whatever that is not running. Luckily after testing out this jacket I was able to come home and help my shoes begin to dry out with my StuffIts!
I won these last year in a giveaway and they have been one of the best things ever because normally my wet shoes just sit around for days, instead now they dry quickly and don't smell.
How have you been handling the recent rainy runs? Do you get out in them or hit the treadmill? I have to say that it just depends on the day and the intensity of the rain for me. While in KC I was excited to meet a group to run, but the rain include lightning so I hightailed it out of there...but otherwise a summer rainy run beats a summer humid run in Miami!
