am doing the 5k run forlife in salisbury
last time i ran anywhere...dunno. to the loo? whatever. i dont run much. or even exercise much. i was going to train...but i didnt.
it now occurs to me that i am woefully inexperienced and dont know what to wear for the event.
was thinking leggings or jogging bottoms and a tshirt. but torrential rain... a strong possibility.
so, do i waer a raincoat? or what? will being wet be a Good Thing (cool me down) or a miserable as fark thing?

god im such a loser...

Take a thin mac eh?
One that you can put in your pocket if need be.Good luck.
I did it last month.

Take a thin pocket mac, TM. Wear fairly tight bottoms - chafing can quickly become a problem with baggier garments!

Good luck! I also did it last month in Bath and it was fantastic. Be prepared to feel quite emotional reading the notes on everyone's backs.

It's a great race and absolutely nobody who takes part is a loser!
