10 degree Fahrenheit! That was the temperature when I checked my cell phone before stepped out of the car this morning. I was dressed for the weather, head to toe covered, gloves and all, ready for cold running. So I thought.
My face was exposed to the element, and I forgot to apply lotion. But that was not the problem. It was my hands that were freezing. My fancy running gloves were not much help this morning. I ended up wrapping my hands in plastic trash bags that were available along the C&O Tow Path to prevent them from freezing.
But even that I was loosing my battle with the Mother Nature. I ended up running only 6 miles and decided that was enough. Luckily, SRC had hot tea ready waiting for me which was a real life saver.
