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.
