oh, the weather outside is – delightful
There’s a saying that runners have: “There is no bad weather, only bad clothing.” I am finally convinced.
I have resisted buying a warm winter coat for many years. I grew up in cold, snowy, Michigan winters so felt silly buying a warm coat for the mild (in comparison) winters in California and Oregon. Never mind that after the first year out west, I acclimated and was generally always freezing.
Last night, I gave in. I took my dividend check over to REI and bought a lovely, purple-y, thick down jacket. I also pulled my Uggs out from the closet. Oh, the difference it makes. I took Atlas out for a lunchtime ramble and felt completely enveloped in warmth. Now I am truly enjoying our cold and snowy weather.
