Without sounding like a complete girl, what shall I wear?!
Hi Sally- I'm doing it too as the token Rhayader club runner- wish I'd offered to marshall now!
I'm planning on wearing 3/4 tights with a waterproof jacket & my cap!
Think I'll go for a quicker 1st half & hope I can hang on as the rain will get heavier the longer we take!!
What time do you think you'll do? I'm not a quick runner so could do with some company at the back....
(someone is walking mind so hope I beat them!)
Sorry - just need to say this - I find the derogatory use of the word "girl" offensive. I'm male by the way, but have 2 daughters, and don't want them to grow up thinking being a girl is anything to be ashamed of.
To answer your original question, as has already been said, in my opinion, unless it is very cold, less is definitely more in the rain - skin is pretty waterproof, so the only thing you have to worry about is getting cold, which looks like it won't be a problem. On the other hand, wet clothes stick to you, chafe more, and restrict movement. Seriously - no-one will be looking at the colour of your legs - they'll all be concentrating on running as fast as they can.
Wrote my post last night - shut off computer & as I walked out of the room I caught the garmin lead in the stair gate which slammed shut & I caught my foot under it. Oh my word -the pain!! Thought I'd broken my foot... better this morning but not sure how it's going to be with a trainer on it!
Had a bowl of porridge & going to get to the visitor centre for my number etc about 12 in time to put my galoshes on.

Theres not much difference between being wet with sweat and wet with rain.
And by the way, i love girls.
TK - cheers, I appreciate you didn't mean to cause offence.It's just something I've decided I need to challenge when I see/hear it.
Was the race today? How did you do?
Yep - I ran & I got SOAKED !!!! Opted for shorts which were great & 'waterproof' jacket which I think was the best option but I did get a bit cold in it as it stuck to me & filled with water.....
Great race -pity about the weather.
