5K race:

warm up; about 2 miles and strides; got already wet in the warm up; warming up in the rain ... no comments.

Race:  Very cold and rainy; was not used to this cold rain (7 Celsius); snow would have been better, because the amount of whats pooring down is less during snowing but in a way running under these conditions it makes you feel invincible.

I could have worn a t shirt; would have been the same at least for the 5k; other people ran the 10 k in a t shirt; every thing got super wet; the streets were flooded and it was cold

That is a way to start into the new year.  Hm maybe this gives me a hint on my marathon training coming up;

For the next race i will be mentally prepared and will know that the conditions are not that bad as they look;  you will get eventually warm when you run anyway; will try some cream on my skin to protect from the rain

Sounds like you have a solid outlook & approach ... we are in the same age group ... as 3:25 is my required BQ time too. You will get it without question if you follow what you outlined & as you mentioned ... stay injury free. Within a year of consistent running, my 5k dropped from 22 to sub 20 consistently.

My goal after my 3:06 marathon in Oct., 2011 was to go sub 3 at Boston. After 2 months of increased mileage & running a trail 50k ... my knee decided to put me out of commission ... staying injury free is key, take it slow & the progress keeps coming.

I am following Hanson's marathon method now ... well, as a baseline ... I run based on how I feel. But I like his principles.

We need to meet up for a run ... what area do you live in? I run a lot in Piedmont Park ... and also on some routes north of town as that is where my son lives. Let me know when and where you are running sometime, and I will join you.
