Humidity: 50% (moderate)
Distance: 3 miles
Terrain: Flat to Rolling hills
What I Wore to Run: Shorts! T-shirt! Singlet tank underneath and a hat.
Did It Work: Yes. It's definitely shorts season again, if you are comfortable showing your legs. Want
|Brooks shorts, Nike tank & T|
Note: It's tempting to overdress in the spring (and maybe underdress in the fall?) because we're sick and tired of being cold after the freezing winter. Resist the temptation and only baby your "cold spots" - those places that refuse to warm up until after Memorial Day (mine are my ears).
Also, make sure that, if you're wearing layers, the bottom layer must wick. Having all your heat and moisture sit on your skin is bad aesthetically and functionally.
Personal note: I think this is one of the best times of year for running - not too hot, not too cold! Good for your muscles, good for the soul!
