The rain and snow don't really bother me. What I can't stand is excessive heat. But my gym membership helps to prevent the heat, snow, rain and dark of night from keeping me from my workouts.

I love to go walking in the rain & running in the snow.

I've been caught in the rain while running or riding my bike. As others have mentioned, as long as there is no lightning I don't mind. When it's really hot out, I welcome a cooling shower. Of course it gets really steamy when the rain stops.

and I have run a 5k or two in the snow. I've run many in the rain. If I paid for the race, I'm running it! No picking up my t-shirt and leaving. I will admit I've been tempted...but I persevered and ran in the snow.

I can't take humidity anymore. That being said i brave it each and every time to get my workout in. I walk most days at lunch and on the weekends.

Rain and snow don't bother me. Lightning does though.

I'm an exercise wimp - really hate to sweat so work out in my basement where it is at least always cool.

why would anyone want to run or walk in the rain or snow ?...There are so many ways to exercise if the weather is bad...

I would in the rain, but probably not snow. I hate snow.

I'm also from the Pacific NW, so used to rain (and even shoveling snow) but on the whole I prefer to workout indoors, unless we're talking some heavy duty work in the garden. :)

I workout 5-6 days a week at least one hour. I hate every minute of it, but feel great after I'm done. It just is part of my routine

Super hot humidity is not for me for outdoors, but i got plenty to play with inside.

I'm from the Northwest so the rain doesn't hinder me from getting out and moving.

I've worked out in the rain, but I am way too much of a wimp about cold. Not to mention that I am very uncoordinated and would probably break my head. I will be hitting the gym more when it's snowy here.

I don't particularly enjoy being while fully clothed. However, I have been caught in the rain a few times when running. I just try to do something inside if I know it's raining.

And I live in Minnesota and we have snow. I go running outside in the winter but I make sure to dress appropriately. I have even run a Thanksgiving Day 10k the day after a major snowstorm.

when you're dedicated, you don't take no for an answer, but find another way.

If I avoided snow, I would not be able to be outside for months at a time!
Rain and snow should not be used as excuses.

I get energy and feelings of well being from exercise so use the gear available to exercise in various weather conditions.

I don't mind the rain, the last two mornings it was raining when I went for my walk however once it gets cold and if we get snow I may go to the mall and join the walking program.

I would either go to the gym or work out at home. No need to be a hero.

I work out at home, partly so that I can't use the weather as an excuse to skip one.

I will shovel snow and walk.
Rain is OK if it isn't a really cold hard rain or t-storm.

When I use to do cardio outside I totally did it in the raoin or snow but not when lightning was seen. I just ain't that kwazy!
