The best ways to keep running the trails in the rain

In case you haven’t been outside in a while or seen the news, it’s wet outside. Very wet. But that doesn’t mean you have to hide indoors until the May (it’ll probably raining through the summer). Sure you could always go to the gym and get some miles under your belt on the running machine, with a heavy stink of BO in the air. But we reckon no one should be subjected to that kind of misery voluntarily. Being outside no matter what the weather is always better than being stuck indoors.
