Did you know the Runner's World website has a tool that will tell you what you should wear based on the temperature outside, how windy it is, conditions like sunny, snowing, etc, and if you like to run cool, warm or in between? I didn't but I found it this morning. Fun! I played around with it for awhile. I hate being too cold when I run so often I will overdress and about a mile into it get hot and start shedding clothes. Often I will just leave them on the side of the road and pick them up on my way back. This is of course is better than getting a mile in and being too cold! It is always easier to take off clothes than it is to put on what you don't have. I hate cold hands and ears so I will run with a hat on if it is even close to being below 50 degrees. Same with the gloves. If my hands get hot I stuff the gloves in my bra if I am not wearing something with pockets. You can find the tool HERE. Speaking of Runner's World I finally got around to reading the November issue last night. This is what they recommended I wear today to run for 35 degrees, sunny, calm, and I like to run "in between" that is not cool or warm.
A jacket. A hat and gloves.
I fear cooking shall be the bane of my existence forever. Some people enjoy it. Ugh not me. It is a chore, something that has to be done. A job I don't get paid for. The best thing about this weekend was not cooking. Not a single meal. I bought Lean Cuisine freezer meals and ate them all weekend. :) I try to always make food from scratch for my family, because I want us to be healthy. This weekend me and the stove took a vacation from each other. AWESOME.
I am guessing I did not win the Team Refuel grant :( I have not heard from them and the next round of people are up for voting. A little bummed, but that's how it goes so thanks to everyone who voted for me. I appreciate the time and effort you spent on my behalf.
