Necessary items these past few weeks: What The Fluff (reversible) vest, Sugoi long brushed running tights, Run Swiftly Long Sleeve, In Stride jacket, Saucony cold weather running mittens, and Run Brisk headband.

Necessary items: Run: Turnaround shorts, Scoop Me tank top (which I now see is a size too big…), iTunes for motivation, and Oakley Urgency shades. My hair didn’t like it so much either (see: all family pictures taken after we got off the plane).

You snow birds must be experts at this. Btw, back in NYC and it’s 50°. Yahooo!
Have you ever gone from one climate to the other and run successfully? What are your tricks? Did you travel this holiday season? Are you as bummed out about school starting as I am? Tell me all about it.
Now go out and run.
