One of the "all rain stages" that we hope not to have just too many of
during the autumn.
Cold weather rain is the worst weather for us as it is more difficult to
keep body temperature than even during hard frost.
- today we tried a new variant: as the running clothes was totally cold &
soaked after 4 hours, and the cold was beginning to be a problem, I (J.)
tried to run with our spare tent cloth as rain cover.
Not at all bad as it was so greasy from being 'stand-in dinner cloth' that
it held out most of the hard rain ;-)
Later, though, the wind got quite strong and almost sent me flying off
into the Siberian wilderness and we had to let go of that method.
A more positive thing was that once again our run seemed to inspire the
local administration to leave the suit in the office & get on the running
shoes! The mayor ran the first 10km of our stage :-)
