I don't know what to wear!
We had a glorious, unexpected week for temperatures in Maine. For a majority of the week, we have temperatures ranging from in the 70's and 80's. This was a real treat. Although it was challenging adjusting to running in warmer temperatures with the rapid increase, it was still nice to wear a tank and skirt while running.
To be honest, yesterday morning, I was getting ready to head out for my 5 mile run and was quite stumped with figuring out what to wear. It's like 1 week of glorious weather completely wiped out my memory in knowing what to wear for normal Maine weather.
I couldn't bring myself to wear full length tights. I should have, but I couldn't. So I opted to break in my Pride Socks winnings (from Penny at the Pink Hat Runner). I was happy with the pride socks during the run. They are a thicker sock, so I was nervous about rubbing and blisters, but that didn't happen at all. They were cushy soft and fun to wear.
I also couldn't decide if I was going to wear a cap or winter hat and gloves. I decided to bring all of them with me and decide when I got to the rail trail.
|what to wear? decisions, decisions|
When I got there, I realized that it was a bit cooler along the river - closer to 33F, so I went for the gloves and winter hat.
I also broke in my SPIband. The capris I chose to wear did not have a bum pocket, and I needed something to put my keys into. I won this a while back from Holly at The Pioneer Apron. This little gem worked like a charm. I didn't even notice it was on my wrist. This is great for those days I'm going on a mid length run on the rail trail. If I'm on a long run, I'll have my camelbak.
