” I have a spare pair of takkies, a running outfit, and three beach towels,” says Allyson Lamey, a runner in Cape Town.
“When it’s raining, I slip my socked feet into plastic bags, then put on my running shoes,” says reader Darryl Dalcerri.
“The bags keep my feet dry even when I run through puddles.” Most wet weather runners rotate pairs of shoes.
If you have to dry shoes overnight, crumple up newspaper and cram it tightly into your shoes, with the insoles removed.
The newspaper soaks up the moisture. When drying running shoes however, don’t put them in the oven or tumble dry since it destroys the glue keeping the bits together.
