SAUSALITO (KCBS) – The hearty runners who meet before sunrise in the Marin Headlands every Thursday were soaked well before the end of this week’s run.

Georgia Young and a dozen of her fellow Ninjas, as the group is known, still made their 12-mile loop in two hours.

“It’s fun in this twisted way,” she chuckled.

KCBS’ Bob Melrose Reports:

The question they’ve all heard a million times, perhaps even occasionally asked themselves as they set out for the 5:30 a.m. rendezvous: Why?

“Because I love to run, even in the rain,” said Devon Crosby Holmes, who will try out for the Olympics next January in Houston.

Thursday’s pouring rain and gale force winds couldn’t compare with the lousy weather during the qualifying run that took place over the weekend, Crosby Holmes said.
