Here’s All of the Gear You Need for That Rainy Day Run

Man standing outside in the rain.

Convincing yourself to go for a run can be tough enough already without the ups and downs of weather getting in the way. Which is exactly why we’ve resolved that a little thing like rain should never be reason enough to put off your outdoor workout (especially since a rain shower can actually help boost your calorie burn). But just because we’re willing to run in the rain doesn’t mean that we’re ready to do it without the right gear for the job. Here, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite running-in-the-rain essentials, from waterproof sneakers to fitness trackers that keep going strong in even the strongest of rainstorms.
