As I was getting my clothes ready last night, I paused for a moment to remember what I would need for a cold run. It's been a fairly mild December up to this point and I've been a bit spoiled.
Winter running tights - check
Winter weight running shirt - check
Beanie - check
Gloves - hmm...medium weight Under Armor or heavy duty LL Bean Thinsulate mittens - mittens it is
Next up, 2nd shirt or running jacket? My thought was this: We're running by the river and who knows what the wind will be like there....jacket. Definitely jacket. I may or may not have said this aloud. I do talk to myself quite a bit. I'm crazy like that.
I looked around for my neck gaitor, but couldn't find it. I'm pretty sure a certain 8 year old boy has stashed it somewhere. No worries, after today's run, I ran to Reny's and got myself a new Columbia neck gaitor. I'm all set for future runs now!
Then the normal stuff - socks, shoes, Garmin, gum, water.
It was breezy out there today. We met up for our 6:30 am run and ventured out on the rail trail. All 6 of us.
Here we are - after our 10 miler this morning.

11 degrees at the start and 20 degrees at the end, and it's only going to get colder. Next comes the ice and snow. Brrrr.....

How was your run this weekend? Is it getting chilly where you live?
Also, what do you think about my new header? I've been playing around a lot lately with new ones and can't seem to decide what I want for my new look. I do want a clean look, but not too plain. Be honest.
