42 Degrees This Morning

what a change this morning compared to yesterday!  It was a more normal 42 Degrees this morning when I ran!  I wore a full sweat suit this morning and gloves and a hat.  It reminds me that sometime soon winter will be in full force and it will be too dangerous (icy) to run outside.  When that transition occurs, I will have to convert into hamster mode and run on the local indoor running track and begin my 50 laps to attain 5 miles.  I am fortunate we have an indoor track in my community, because I can avoid running on a treadmill (that is by far my least favorite), but the track is not as enjoyable as being outside.  I still will be walking outside to maintain my cold tolerance, and I do that no matter how cold it may get or how snowy it will be.  So I will still be spending time outdoors, which is good... just not running.  Hopefully, we will not get actual ice until December (fingers crossed), although it could be any time now.  Usually, it happens around November 1st or so.

Pipe is in hand, dog is relieving herself, and it seems like it will hopefully be a nice day at the U.

42 is chilly, to be sure! I'm not looking forward to the cold either. Have a good day!

I'm looking forward to cooler weather, and maybe sitting at some warming campfires.

Maybe you should move south a ways so you can run outside year around.
