As many of you know I have been doing a 100 day challenge, where I am active for 30 minutes every day for 100 days. It's been fine, but in truth, I was getting a little bored. Okay, a lot bored. It turns out I'm more of a yoga couple days a week maybe girl than a yoga six days a week girl. I need to do something else. In truth I would love to bike, I really miss my bike, but I am not insane, nor do I have a death wish. After much thought I have decided to call upon the services of two old acquaintances:

That's right folks, I'm running again. Well, walogging really. This time I'm doing a couple things differently. One, I did some reading and am going to stretch properly. Two, no treadmill for me this time. I'm all outside all the time baby! I went for my first walk/jog yesterday and it was great. Jogging for that one minute does not feel as slow as it did on the treadmill, plus I don't get as sweaty now that my body is trying to prevent my extremities from freezing. Just out of curiosity, what do you runners out there wear to run in winter?

I'm not a runner by any stretch of the imagination, but I am attempting a 5k this winter, so I've had to figure out the "running outside" thing, too. For me, it's old footless dance tights, socks, sweats, t-shirt, hoodie, fleece, gloves, earwarmer. I probably should have a windbreaker of some sort, but otherwise I've been fine so far. On the other hand, Ottawa isn't as cold as winterpeg, so I don't know what else you might want.
