It's Chilly Running Weather Time

 Yes, blah blah blah, blah blah blah.  I keep telling myself that these cold November runs are training me for a cold 100 plus mile run in February.  Now that is true; but it doesn't make it any easier to get out the door.

 At least the views were good.

The famous Gump dogs

I don't even slow down for them anymore. They just don't care either.

 The mask is helping both with my breathing and keeping the lower half of my face from freezing.

OKAY by a couple miles into the run, all was pretty good.  The climbs out on the ridge, into the wind, were really cold, but my face mask helped quite a bit.


  1. couple of very nice pictures there at the end. good job getting out there !

  2. What kind of mask are you using? I have a "gaiter" by that doesn't work well. If I pull it over my nose, my glasses fog. If I pull it over my mouth, it falls down. I ran today with it and my face totally froze. So far the only thing that helps is "Bag Balm" which is used to stop cow teats from chapping.

  3. It is a Seirus mask. The one I am wearing in the pic is a lighter one, with a bandana hanging down on my neck. I also have a heavier one, in a fleece material. I believe I found these at Dick's Sporting Goods and also Cabelas.
