I went out this morning after dropping my son off to school to test the elements. The snow was starting to come down, I had three quarter length shorts on, a wicker top, and a rain proof jacket. I wore fingerless gloves, and a sweat band type hat which covered my ears, but not my head. The parents looked at me strangely. More of that was to follow. By mile 2, i was getting warm, so i stripped down to my t-shirt. It was quite refreshing, and maybe because i overheat, i didnt feel the cold. By mile 5, i was toasty, despite snow sticking to my eyebrows. By mile 10, the looks were getting stranger, especially from the school kids who left early, and i suppose to the outside world i was mad, but this was just running with the elements, about going out there in all weathers, and it felt great. I did 14 miles in the end. I got in, no frostbite, stretched out, no after effect, and carried on as normal for the rest of the day. I was pleased i did it, and i wasnt the only runner.
