Ha! It was clear when I left the house, but I could still hear a faint rumble of thunder in the distance. I walked on! I had mapped out 3.2 miles on the USATF website. I knew where I was going or so I thought. I took a wrong turn down a dead end street and ended up having to backtrack. I decided that I would cut my walk a little short to make up for the mistake. As I got to where I was supposed to turn around down came the rain! By the time I arrived back home, I was soaked. Fortunately, my Blackberry fared quite well in my pocket. It was a learning experience though. I learned:
- Never trust the forecast radar to pinpoint where the rain is going.
- My cheap Wal-Mart walking shoes are not waterproof.
- Black clothing is better to wear if there is any possibility of getting wet.
- Those loose-fitting clothes that us fat princesses wear to camouflage our figures become form-fitting when wet. I apologize to all the folks passing by in their vehicles.
Tomorrow, I plan on hitting the St. Tammany Trace for a whole 3 mile walk after my Weight Watcher's meeting! Tomorrow is weigh in day, I'll post my results!
