A friend and I started jogging on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday doing three miles every morning (which means waking up at 4:45AM ;_;). So far we've just been alternating walking and jogging laps and we're hoping to build some endurance to eventually work our way up to being able to comfortably jog and talk at the same time for a full five miles in an hour or less.
On Monday I strapped on my Vibrams and went out in my yoga pants and a sweater...and almost died. It was effing cold! Plus I don't have any toe socks for my Vibrams so I was fairly confident my toes were going to fall off by the end of it.
Today I had on socks, tennis shoes, long johns, men's sweat pants, my long sleeve PAX Enforcer shirt, my ECCC Pawn shirt, a sweater, a jacket, and gloves. Oh, and I got to rock the sweet Razer trucker hat that I got for free at Prime last year, though I can't really say trucker hats are the greatest thing to wear in an effort to keep warm.
I topped everything off with a reflective yellow vest so the end effect was that I looked like I was about to flag traffic or wave in an airplane. I was damn warm though. Which is a good thing today, since IT IS SNOWING RIGHT NOW. WHY IS IT SNOWING?!
I was super excited when I read (OK, skimmed) this recent post by Cliff Mass about how Eastern Washington is about to make that glorious switch over from being balls colder than Seattle to balls hotter than Seattle.
Today I am disappoint.
