Good running weather?

What weather conditions do you prefer for running in and what are your least favourites?

Again, about 30 respondants to this survey. Very mixed results again, so I’ve just listed all the good and all the bad, and a couple of different comments! All I can say is that if you are running when it’s cold wrap up warm, if it’s slippy be careful, and if it’s hot take water with you and keep hydrated.
