...I just noticed how hard it is to run when it's really cold. Extra clothes layers, and hard to breathe.
There are few things as depressing as going out in the dark AND cold...luckily I don't have to do that much...usually Sundays only and the Beal is a miracle answer for the dark part...but a grey gloomy day is pretty awful also.
I overdress so that I don't freeze at the beginning but if I go long enough then when I am undressing the clothing weighs an incredible amount. We don't usually get quite cold enough to make it tough to breath, but the wind is just as bad...wide open routes on a cold windy day are brutal also.
Day by day we're getting closer to spring and summer.
