Before leaving, I wanted to get in a quick ride. Brrr was it cold! I wore my long sleeve disney half shirt with a zip up jacket & cycling shorts. 4 miles in, my toes were numb & I was wishing I had my winter gloves instead of my cycling gloves. I made it the whole 12 miles, and jumped right into the shower to warm up & thaw out at home.
It made me start wondering about cold weather clothing. Living in New England, we get a TON of cold weather & snow. Now, normally I am the girl who skips runs outdoors if it is too cold or snowing. I want that to change this year. So now, I need the appropriate gear so I don't freeze to death. I get cold very easily in the winter, so I need stuff to keep me warm, but not overheated. I already have my running tights, but I'm wondering about socks, tops, arm sleeves?, and I would LOVE a face warmer lol What are your suggestions for keeping warm on outdoor runs in fall/winter?
I know I'm a runner since I look forward to buying running clothes, more than regular ones.
Sox game was awesome! I stayed on track with only 2 beers at Boston Beer Works, and a chicken sandwich & sweet potato fries for lunch/dinner. Best of all, the Sox beat the Yankees & we got to run the bases after the game!

Tonight I did a Jillian Michael's 30 day shred DVD, and made the most fabulous low cal mac & cheese I've ever tasted (I'll post that recipe tomorrow). Planning a morning run tomorrow at the gym, wish me luck at waking up!
