I know (I know...) my northern friends and readers are like "suck it up....that's WARM. You want to know what COLD IS?!"
I mean, I used to be one of those braving the snow and sludge going to college classes in central PA. My sister lives in NYC for goodness sake and they just went through a storm last week. I have a sorority sister who lives in Norway right now. She probably considers our weather a heat wave at this point.
I remember attending sorority events in the dead of winter wearing a hoodie and flip-flops.
I'm not so cold resilient anymore. I do find myself a lot more heat resistant. I prefer mild temperatures now and I'm okay with the house being 82 degrees without turning on the A/C.
The colder weather is amazing for running though. I find myself speeding up just in hopes of warming up my hands.
I woke up this morning around 6 am to have breakfast and get ready for my run. I managed 5.6 miles under 52 minutes today. The last 2.8 miles I did under 25 minutes. I definitely go a bit faster when I have a set destination in mind.
Post-run, I showered and got ready to go to brunch with my boyfriend and brother.
