I just wish there was a way to capture the feeling. The feeling, on a cold winter run in Ohio, where, at mile 1.2, you're good. The fingers can be uncurled in the gloves, the Buff Band is pulled off the head, and the legs are warming up. You're on a downhill and feeling fine.
I wish you could put that into a little liquid, and pour that into a shot glass. Then, as you putz around the house, procrastinating, you could take the shot, and get that feeling. And my, would that get you out the door!
I got a new jacket. As you can see, it's too big. I bought it that way on purpose. It's so I can fit it over the hydration vest. It's from Merrell, with both wind-resistant and breathable. I wore it with a capilene shirt, a merino wool shirt and the jacket. I liked it. I liked being able to zip it up and down to help with heat control.
Oh yeah, the run. 6.3 miles in 1 hour 24 minutes. One unplanned bathroom stop. I should probably stick to oatmeal vs a bagel for a pre-run breakfast.
