Hi Runners & Walkers! Yes, yes, yes! We will run rain or shine, and yes, even in snow! No matter what time of year, if you plan to run MORE than 6-8 miles you should bring along some water and an energy source such as Clif shot blocks or GU, etc. Wear some sunscreen in all daylight running even if it's overcast. For warmer days of spring/summer bring along some water and don't over dress, capris or shorts and short sleeved shirts are perfect for this time of year. Please wear white, yellow or some reflective clothing and a HEADLAMP for September through March runs that will be during dark hours. You will want to have a hat and gloves for colder days and maybe keep a long sleeve shirt or second shirt layer in your car. You MUST always have runner's rain jacket in your car from Sept-May and year round for that matter...always handy! Any other questions about running safety and or clothing to have on hand, just call, text, or email me and ask anytime. Wendita 425-269-9108 Shopping List... Headlamp, halogens best, $10-30.
