Through all this travel and brain-fogginess, I'm (frankly) proud to have kept up my jogging. I don't want to brag or anything, but it's something of a challenge when the temperature outdoors is lower than in my freezer. Here's how I prepare:
Strip to panties and socks.
Put on three layers of pants. First my jogging tights, then merino wool longjohns, last my summer jogging capris.
Put on three layers of shirts. Long-sleeved merino wool shirt and two loose cotton teeshirts.
Put on three layers of head protection. First is a tube scarf of thin, flexible knitted polyester. I pull it on halfway so it covers from the crown of my head, over my ears and around my chin, plus the back of my head and all my neck. Next comes a thin knitted cap touting Norwegian polar research. Last is a thicker double-layered knitted cap touting Swedish polar research.
Put on jacket. This is a fairly thin but windproof jacket my husband got for attending a conference. It's too small for him, but ample for me. The sleeves hang down way beyond my fingertips. That's important!
Put on headlamp. (Remember, it's dark out!)
Put on reflector vest. (Ditto!)
Put on studded jogging shoes.
Put on thin merino wool gloves. Because of the long sleeves, it's enough to have thin gloves. If I gather the loose ends of the sleeves and hold them between my fingertips, my hands don't get cold at all. This even though I "always" suffer from white finger syndrome in other contexts.
It may sound as though I'm bundled up like Charlie Brown, but it isn't that bad. I'll take a pic before I go for my run today and post it later.

Here's a close-up of our other light feature, a glass vase of little LED lights. That one is always there, but it's only lit from October to March. In the light half of the year I look at this and other light fixtures (and candles and flashlights and reflector vests) and find them so irrelevant I wonder why they even exist.

Michele .. I used to have my dental procedures without novocaine as well thinking I had a high threshold for pain. That is until a dumb donkey behind of an oral surgeon decided to give me a root canal (on what turned out to be a live root) without any novocaine. It left me so scarred that I've turned into a huge baby at the dentist!
