It's Rainning, Do you run or walk? What will keep you dryer?

Question on JJJ with Dr Karl, asked If you run in rain do you get less wet than if you walk?
Turns out some meteorologists did a study on this. True. They went to extensive lengths to offer reliable controls.
The result of the study found you'll be 40% dryer in heavy rain, 20% dryer in light rain if you run.

However you chance of tripping and hurting yourself increases.
