This may surprise you, but running in the cold sucks. At least for now the sun is up when we go out in the morning, but it’s not really helping. According to www.weather.com (which John is convinced I rely on too much), it was 31 degrees out when I left the house and 27 degrees when I came back. Isn’t that backwards? How does it get colder in half an hour when the sun is up and there’s no wind? Doesn’t it usually get warmer as the day progresses? So maybe John’s right and weather.com is lying to me. Either way, I need to buy actual cold-weather running clothes. Running when temperatures are below freezing takes almost all the willpower I have, and maybe having cool new weather-appropriate clothes will make it easier to get out of bed.
