You Lie,

Pin It!

Before I go out in the mornings, I make sure to check the weather so I know how to dress. 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 and 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…)

    The road less traveled is always far more scenic anyways!

    With Love,

    That’s too funny Katie! I’m sure everyone driving by thought you were nuts!

  3. Jane says:

    i wouldn’t have thought you were crazy- whenever i get caught in huge downpours (which has happened way more than once) i laugh too! it’s just hysterical- you feel like you just jumped in a pool and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it!

    Yay, another give-away! I think it would be nice of Lewis of Larabar to befriend me since, so far, I don’t care for Larabars. Maybe he’d like to convince me otherwise.

    Hooray for all the cool loot you got!

    I’m not sure I’d have been laughing if it started pouring buckets while I was running, but bravo to you for having a great attitude about it!

    Are you guys supposed to get snow tomorrow? Because it’s 70-something degrees today and snow tomorrow.
    TX is a crazy place to live!
    Larabar love!

    Aw man! It’s rainin here in the city right now. But, not buckets. That is pretty hilarious. Yeah for all that calcium in your kale. Woot woot!

  7. Heh…that happened to me one day when I was walking my dog. When we got back home, we were both soaked. At least I don’t smell bad when I get wet…but the dog, that’s another story.

    i learned a long time ago to never trust i go straight to the local news station website for the weather.

  9. Vegan_Noodle says:

    It absolutely poured here today… but I think actually predicted that one correctly 🙂

  10. Marianne says:

    Hey, I would have mixed the soba noodles the same way, mostly due to me not liking tomato sauce. Soba noodles rock!

    Too bad about the sudden downpour during your run. At least it didn’t last your entire run.

  11. Emily says:

    Aww, so sorry you got rained on. I completely rely on, too!

    Can’t wait for your next giveaway…enjoy your Larabar stash!

  12. Eddie G says:

    Yeah–I’ve given up on trusting Texas weather reports 🙂

  13. marafaye says:

    oOOH great Larabar loot!!

  14. laci says:

    looking forward to your giveaway! 🙂

  15. Vaala says:

    Hahaha, happens ALL the time here! So the weather forecasters here never promise that it won’t rain just in case (unless it’s scheduled to be really bad they usually say it will be “mostly” fine but we all know what that means!). I hope you didn’t get strong wind as well. I had that at the top of our local volcano – got to the top when it bucketed down and the wind was so strong it was pretty tricky getting down as I was going into the wind!

  16. Yasmin says:

    LOL! You are so evil to tease us like that with your awesome t-shirts 🙂

  17. NAOmni says:

    Great attitude about the rain!


  18. brandi says:

    don’t you love weather predictions? 🙂 the last 5K I ran…it was pouring the entire time. I had water sloshing out of the front of my shoes with each step I took! sometimes it’s nice though.

    what a great Larabar pacakge! cute shirts

  19. I ALWAYS check the weather before I head out to class too!! Usually it’s pretty accurate, but lately I have been dressing way too warm for how hot it’s been outside!!!

    And I loveee desperate housewives and gg too! 🙂 Half way through this week’s desperate housewives episode…it’s so intense!
    That lunch looks tasty! 🙂

  20. Erin says:

    Awww, you have a good sense of humor. I’m soaking and don’t like it (and it didn’t last 4 miles). It is cold here in my defense!!
    I love the chocolate covered meals! Yay!
