Taking advantage of the Sun + hating COLD hands!

Posted Nov 08 2012 7:41pm


Tuesday when I got home from work I decided to take advantage of the fact that the sun was still out, even at a ripe 34 degrees!

I hit the sunny, chilly pavement wearing gloves, a hat, and some black apparel. 

Good thing I had my gloves, although, halfway through my Raynauds kicked in… and my hands were in pain.  THATS never a good time.   Usually, I run with handwarmers (I’ve thought I learned my lesson… been stuck in bad situations in the past…) in my gloves, which doesn’t PREVENT this from happening, BUT does make it a bit more tolerable..) but couldn’t find any, and honestly I figured it wasn’t going to be THAT cold.

Here’s a pic of my PAINFUL, white, frozen finger….

I guess I shouldn’t complain… Raynauds and you’ll see worse pictures than this one…

My 2.01 run was great!  My mind and body were feeling good, and I felt fast. 

1mile:  9:02     9’02”

2mile:  18:51   9’49”     +0’46

The last mile was a little longer, because I did wait at a crosswalk…. gah!

Anyways, I thought I would open up the end of this post with a question about gloves. Do you wear gloves when you run?   If so, what kind/type of gloves do you wear?
