Shill… I mean “chill”

It was pretty cold yesterday when I went out for the long run of the week: 12ºF (-11ºC). So I bundled up in the warmest running clothes I have.

I realized about half-way through my run that I looked like a total shill for Salomon, since I was wearing Salomon pants, jacket, hat/toque, and running pack. In fact, if it weren’t for the shoes—I wear Saucony these days— and gloves, I might as well have stepped right out of a catalog.

But the gear worked out exactly as I’d hoped: I didn’t get too cold, nor did I feel like I was carrying around extra bulk. The only downside to the weather and gear combo is that the water froze in my hydration pack a few times. Whenever I went longer than four or five minutes between drinks, the mouthpiece would start to ice up. Oh well. Such is winter in New England.

  1. Dude, you are so hardcore.

    You know what I’m doing when it’s that cold outside? I’m busy trying to not be outside! :-)

    Keep moving, brother!
