Baby it's Cold Outside!

I had a fantastic 4+ mile run this morning.  I got out about 8:30, to get ahead of the impending snow storm.  It was 14 degrees!  I realized that I am pretty hardy when it comes to running in the cold, as long as it's not windy.

I wore running tights, with lined wind pants over the top, a tank, long sleeved shirt AND a jacket.  Of course a hat and mittens, too.  After the first mile I was warmed up and very comfortable.  OH!  And my favorite accessory of choice, toe warmers.  I buy a huge box every season for skiing and realized last year how great they were to run with.

There were flurries, and fresh white snow coating everything.  It was slippery, so I tried to stick to the sidewalk where the tree cover made bare spots.

Every runner I passed waved.  I really felt like part of a community today.  Running is awesome.
