Why is it that we are so afraid of the rain?
I live in one of Canada’s most rainy cities, and on average we experience 166 days of rain a year. This being said, you would think that the locals would be used to it right? No! Vancouverites have a tenancy not to enjoy ANY type of weather. If it’s raining, your co-workers are depressed, if it’s sunny out it’s too hot and the sky-train reeks! You just can’t win! As you can imagine, this weather phobia we have keeps people from doing a lot of things like going for walks or spending time outside. I have decided to try not be one of “THOSE” people.
It was pouring rain a few nights ago and the last thing I wanted to do was go for a walk. But I did it, I tied up my shoes, turned my music up high and went for it. I walked at total of 4 miles, got soaking wet and LOVED every second of it. I burnt a ton of calories and it was a great work-out!
There’s something incredibly invigorating about letting fresh rain drops bead down your cheeks. I will definitely be going on another wet walk this week!
