Running up the mountain at the end of our road keeps me fit. It also lets me play around in the rain like when I was a kid only these days I don't get yelled at to wear my 'big' coat, I'm old enough to wear what I like!
This is my running track. This is after 10 days of rain. The record in Bergen is something like 83 days in a row. I'll swap my trainers for flippers if that happens again.
You know it's a windy day in the hills when the waterfalls don't fall. A waterfall being blown back on itself.
Just to prove it's not all dark skies and precipitation. I managed to capture this sliver of sunshine on the suburbs of Bergen before heading over the edge of the ridge and back down to under-floor heating and porridge.
When conditions are like today you're feet are going to get wet. I don't care what waterproof lining you have in your Nik-Pu-idas pumps water and shin deep bog mud will get in. Deal with it. Wear unlined trainers, a pair of merino socks and keep going. Yes your feet will get wet but they won't be cold. Saying that, later in the year when we're under snow I may try some Rocky Gore Tex socks. I'm skeptical about waterproof socks ever since I tried a pair of Sealskinz. The Horror. The Horror.
