Wake Up Your Senses With A Walk In The Rain

In honor of the Rain Day Festival in Waynesburg, PA, Dr. Cindy Lin, clinical associate professor of rehabilitation medicine in the field of sports and spine medicine, and associate director of clinical innovation at The Sports Institute at UW Medicine, joined the Weather Channel to talk about the benefits of walking in the rain. It is important to be physically active every day, but inclement weather is a common barrier to outdoor activity. Meteorologists Paul Goodloe and Jennifer Lopez discussed with Dr. Cindy Lin the health values of walking in the rain, the proper attire needed, and proper safety precautions to take.  

“Walking in the rain really wakes up all of our senses,” Lin said. “You can hear the rhythm of the rain, you can feel the rain drops, and smell the fresh air.”
