Erika from MCM Mama Runs, Marcia from Marcia's Healthy Slice and Patty from No-Guilt Life.This week's topic is Running Weather.
I used to think that running in 70 degrees was nice and slowly as I've learned more and done more races, I realized my ideal has changed greatly!
My ideal outfit is a tank top with shorts and a sparkle skirt, A hat for sun protection and ProCompression socks to top it off. This outfit doesn't change much unless it's colder then I would wear a short sleeve shirt (long sleeve shirts get me too hot!)
Ideal temp would probably be 50-55. I have yet to run in low 50s but i love the chill in the air.
I have used the chart above to help with outfit choices before and it has helped (especially during the WDW 5k, Frozen 5k and 10k where it was right around freezing.
The closest I have come to my ideal temp lately was the Tinkerbell Half Marathon where it was 57 at the start-a bit chilly but felt great while running. I definitely think it contributed to my new Disney PR!
How about you? How do you like your outfit and weather?
