The feels like temp this morning was -3. Yep. I convinced myself to get up and just go for a short run. First, I didn't want to be out in the cold THAT long. And second, I knew my commute would be a disaster so I didn't have a ton of time.
I got in 2.05 miles and felt pretty good.
I actually don't mind running in the snow. It's brighter so I didn't even run with a flashlight this morning. And snow is better than ice. Plus, I am sure it burns more calories, much like running on sand does. At least in my mind it does.
I wore running tights under a pair of pants and a long sleeve shirt under my jacket. I was comfortable for the most part, but I think I need to invest in a running jacket with thumb holes. My gloves left tiny patches of my wrists exposed and I kept tugging on the sleeves of my jacket.
The best part about a morning run is by the time I was done I was already halfway through my 10,000 steps for the day. Take that, Jawbone!
