I knew winter had to come eventually so I shouldn’t have been surprised that the temp read 24 degrees this morning at 9:00AM. At least the sun was shining. It had been a while since we had temps that low so I had to guess at what to wear. I went with Under Armor leggings and top then a Cool-Max shirt over that plus hat and gloves. Turns out that was perfect. I was very comfortable the entire 9 miles. I got some interesting looks from some drivers and I imagine they were thinking “what’s wrong with that guy running in this cold weather”. But I also passed about half-dozen other dedicated runners and I’m sure they were thinking the same thing I was, “what’s the big deal, it’s cold, so what?”
I know it will get harder to stay outside once the snow flies but for now, 24 and sunny is just fine.
