I'm doing the Barns Hill half on Sunday coming and the weather forecast - how do I say this nicely? - is crap. High winds and rain but not too cold.
It's only my 2nd half and I need advice on what to wear in such weather over this sort of distance. My feeling is to stick to lycra shorts and standard top (not cotton) as if I'm going to get wet, then anything like wet leggings will contribute extra weight, and a rain top will just make me even sweatier and hotter. Maybe slap a fleece gilet on to keep the body warm as this doesn't weigh too much even when wet. OK, my shoes will get wet but I have to put up with that, and I'm not going to wear my waterproof socks (Porelle drys) as they are uncomfortable. I also plan to vaseline the areas that are likely to chafe in the wet - crutch/crack/armpits/nipples. Any other advice out there on running in these sort of conditions?
