Running in the rain

Bobby pins save the day!
Bobby pins save the day!

Yeah, sure… It’s bright and sunny now, but when I went on my run this morning, it was raining. This fall/winter, I’ve been wearing my new Brooks rain-proof jacket and the jacket is indeed rain-proof. And, wind proof. Mostly. HOWEVER! The hood is not adjustable, so if there is any wind at all, the hood falls off when the wind is head on or even sideways. That’s a pretty big bummer when it’s raining raining – you know, not just a light drizzle or mist.

So, I’ve found a way to keep the hood up. Bobby pins! That’s right. One on each side, hood + hat. The hood stayed up for the whole run, which is great because it rained the whole time. Next time I buy rain gear, I will make sure the hood is adjustable (so you can cinch it). You hear that, Brooks?
