My chilly run and a bargain buy
Well the past couple of weeks it has been pretty chilly in the south. Last Tuesday, it was in the mid 20's when I was supposed to run, and I bailed and went to the gym and did 30 minutes on that stair stepper instead. I was too cold that morning to face the weather. Well yesterday, it was supposed to be in the teens. Well I went ahead and wrapped my head around it on Monday night and decided I would conquer the cold this week. Yesterday the temperature was 16 degrees when I started my run (yeah, about 10 degrees colder than last week, oops). I had my layers on though, cold weather running tights, long sleeve dryfit shirt, sweatshirt, polar fleece, gloves, hat, socks and my running shoes. The run wasn't that bad. That first mile I even had a pretty good time (for a pregnant me). My face was a little chapped after the run, but other than that, it was pretty good. It helped that the sun was shining, and the wind was minimal.
Do you have any bargain buys you use or ways to save?
