The chill in the air gave me second thought about if I dressed warm enough. You see I was prepared for my run today. But the sun looked warm and inviting. And I hated to be overdressed while running. Not only it’s bulky and uncomfortable, overdressing also takes the fun away from running.
Today, I opted for a pair arm sleeves with my normal shirt and shorts and left my vest behind.
As a rule, I rather under-dress when running. After two miles, my body warms up regardless. So starting out a bit cold works well for me. It just the month of October is such a transition time weather-wise. It always has me guessing on how to gear up appropriately before stepping out.
And, yes, there is the sun screen. Never forget. As much as I appreciate the warmth the sun provides like today, it’s the UV lights that I had to watch out.
A few other notes – days are shorter and get dark early and stay dark late in the morning. So the available daylight for outdoor running is less this time of the year. I do not recommend running in the dark for safety reason. But if you must, reflective gears and light are good ideas.
How is your run today?
