Before I go out in the mornings, I make sure to check the weather so I know how to dress. Weather.com has never steered me wrong.
Today’s guide informed me that there was a 0% chance of precipitation at 8AM. Now I don’t know about you, but where I come from, zero means none. That is the definition of “zero,” right? Well, apparently Websters.com and Weather.com don’t agree on this point. I was a little more than halfway through my run when it began to pour buckets!
What could I do? The whole situation was so ridiculous that I had to laugh. If you’d passed me, you would’ve seen a very strange sight: a soaking wet runner, sloshing through the puddles and laughing hysterically the whole time. Granted, the rain only lasted a few minutes, but I was soaking wet for the last four miles of my run. Hey, it was a nice cool-down; at least the weather wasn’t cold.
(Then I might’ve cried instead of laughed…)
