Dark and Early Morning Runs
January 10, 2011 3 Comments
Now, with it being in the heart of winter, I am finally adjusting to the early mornings. The cold (and darkening mornings), seemed much worse back in November as is usually the case. By now, I am able to flick on the tele, get an idea of the temperature and wind chill, and then dress accordingly. Then a light snack and head into the darkness. No problemo. At least it’s light by the time the generally hour long run is done.
At the beginning of winter, I find I dress either too warm or too cold while I slowly get reminded of what temps require what clothing. By January, I seem to be good at it, and no longer dread it.
I will never, however be upset when the mornings get bright again, and those initial, shorts and t shirt only runs present themselves.
Fortunately, this weekend will be warm, very warm, since we are heading to Arizona for the PF CHang’s Rock and Roll Marathon in Phoenix. (Point to Point route from Tempe -> Scotsdale -> Phoenix). I am really looking forward to this one. More on it later.
