The girls layer when the cold sets in and I honestly can’t tell if this is Ellierose or Brit. Must be Ellierose. Brit doesn’t live with us anymore. I live for this weather. It’s why I live in Colorado. Gently falling snow and 20° is meant for running.
I woke up this morning to a foot of snow, excited to get out there. As a gentleman runner, I might stay inside when the wind blows hard, but I dream of snow runs. Below freezing temps don’t scare me. It is a trick though to not overdress on the first cold day. I did okay in light tights, two shirts and a wind jacket. I was able to pocket my gloves before two miles. This was ideal running weather.
I got in six miles on the LoBo Trail, making it a little past this snowy bridge before turning back around. I streamed James Bay on Pandora, gentle music for post card conditions. Real winter is no doubt coming. Running on days like this is how you acclimate. Don’t miss out.
