Hail!

Temp: 53, partly cloudy
Wind: 10 mph, solid headwind
Precip./Humidity: I thought none/moderate
Terrain: Rolling to flat
Distance: 2.5 miles

What I Wore: Today I really wanted to test my Heart Head Hands theory; that if those three are warm the rest of you will usually be fine. So, I went with a sleeveless Nike top; shorts; knit gloves; and brimmed cap.

Did It Work: It actually would have been perfect except, for the first time in my life, I got caught in a hail storm. That stuff stings! It was like being shot by a mean kid with a bb gun! Of course, no sane person would deliberately run in the hail, so it's kinda hard to plan for it. But, if you think you might encounter a freak storm, wear sleeves!
