If you're too young to understand the reference to a Cowsills song (or too young to remember the Cowsills), well that's just too bad. It's a handy way to talk about the run some of us enjoyed on Thursday evening.
But wasn't it raining?
Actually, it didn't rain on us while we were running. Once again the clouds refused to drip on the Frost Toes. But it was damp and cold during the run, prompting one of the Frost Toes to suggest that we put something on the blog about dressing for the cold weather.
Okay, here it is: Be careful when you dress for a run in cold weather.
Seriously, every runner has a different tolerance for temperatures. I tend to get warm no matter what the temp, so I run in shorts and short-sleeved T-shirts when others are wearing long sleeves and pants. My personal line is 40 degrees--anything above 40 and I'm wearing shorts. My legs just feel too hot if I don't. Up top, I wear what seems appropriate for the temp; Thursday night it was a long-sleeved wicking shirt with a light jacket over it. The jacket's made of wicking material that also claims to "breathe" so I don't feel like I'm in a portable sauna.
What about everyone else? As we get closer to Frostbite time, how do you dress for the elements?
