Cold Morning

This morning I woke up to and it was 12 degrees with a windchill of 2. Today was my scheduled day to run and I was determined I was not going to let the cold stop me. I decided that if I wore the same outfit as last time but added a scarf that I would be ok. I headed outside at about 7:00 am, the sun had yet to come out. The streets were empty, but I could see clearly from the street lights. There was very little wind and it didn't seem much colder then Tuesday morning so I thought it would be ok. I took the same path I did last time, since I knew it well. The running portions went fine, I found it harder to breath through the scarf so I pulled it down a little on the run portion. Once I was warmed up from the activity I didn't really feel the cold at all which is good. The sun also came out, which I am sure warmed the temperature at least a few degrees. I am beginning to enjoy running more and actually look forward to the run segment, that isn't to say I'm not ready for the walk portion when it comes time. I finished my route and headed at about 7;28 and got ready for work and left the house in time to catch the bus. Of course I forgot my IPOD which made the walk to work from the bus stop a lot less enjoyable.

I wore the inexpensive shoes I already had for the run and they feel I am wondering if I need new shoes now at all ...or if I should wait until I am running longer distances.

I went outside this morning and said..i'm sure glad this isn't a run day :-)
good for you braving the cold!
If the shoes feel good, I'd keep wearing them.

Getting out in 12 degrees makes you hardcore!!! Awesome job. You need one of ST's ninja masks.
