What is worse than going out for a run on a beautiful morning and finding yourself deluged by rain when you’re all the way out? Going out for a run on a beautiful morning and finding yourself deluged by rain when you’re all the way out and you’re wearing your brand new beautiful running sneakers.
They will never be the same.
Yesterday I was dying to take a run outside, but it looked cloudy and I was worried about my sneakers. So, for the 200th day in a row I went down to the gym, watching the seconds pass slowly, oh so slowly, on the treadmill’s clock. I carried a giant umbrella around with me all day, all over town.
Not a drop of rain fell.
Today I took my children to school and the sun was shining. The thermostat read 67 degrees.
I’m going out for a run, I decided. Finally a beautiful sunny day.
Wrong. I am freezing. I am wet. My sneakers are soaked and dirty looking. I’ll probably catch pneumonia.
So, I’m moving to Antarctica. Yes, you read that right. I am moving to the Dry Valley in Antarctica. Why, you ask, are you moving to Antarctica? We thought you wanted to move to Southern California, on the beach in L.A.
Well, I did a tad of research, and the Dry Valley in Antarctica gets less rainfall than any other place on earth!
I’m packing my bags as I type.
