Starting temp: 48 degrees.... I was FREEZING!
But I do love the Fall (hence the new background). I got married in the Fall. I gave birth to my second child in the Fall. And a lot of my favorite memories of childhood are centered around the Fall (especially Thanksgiving).
Bob said that I needed to put more pictures of me on the Blog, so here we are at the start:
We did not try to match, but our Brooks green jackets made us look like an old married couple. (Remember, Bob is camera shy). It was so cold that I brought out the socks and was still freezing. The area between my skirt and socks was almost chapped at the end.
We had 12 miles on our plan this morning so we headed to the Capital Crescent Trail in Bethesda, MD. 12 miles means a 6 miles turn around that took us almost to Georgetown and back.
I forgot some essentials for cold weather running.
1. Chapstick - I had chapped lips when I finished... and I forgot that I used to carry it with me to reapply as need in January.
2. Vaseline - my nose runs so much, that in the Winter I had to put vaseline on it to keep it from getting chapped too.
3. Tissues - because that nose is running way too much.
We did the 3:1, run:walk. Bob got me my own Gymboss... which I have named Pinky (because it is pink)! She did great and by the time we were finished, I could have gone further. Isn't that a great feeling after a long slow run?
Oh and up here in MD... apparently a runner with knee high socks gets funny looks. I did have one pair comment that they liked them... but most people gave me very strange looks.
How did your long run go today?
Temp when I arrived home at 9:30: 65 degrees
