running log from saturday and links...

Post #: 2


nice to meet everyone there. here's a log from the run:
http://bit.ly/apGrS0­

it was about 14 degrees give or a take a few degrees with the wind/snow and amount of clothing on... or off. 35 minutes wasn't so bad at all, easier if we ran more of course. gloves are important if you're not going to wear a ton of clothing, if you stop, don't stand in a puddle, even with vibrams. i think vibrams + toe socks work great.

the bridge is my daily run, if anyone wants to run it on a regular basis msg me, i usually go around 7am or so - or late late at night 11pm-ish, but i'd go just about any time if there is interest...

today i ran with the kso treks, great with the traction - vibram doesn't sell the flows with the trek bottoms in the usa at this time, otherwise that would be the perfect "foot glove" for these types of runs i think.

reporters seem fixated on the word "caveman" and "barefoot"- for a run outside with the minimal possible and healthy eating, it's a novelty. someone who passed by asked "hey, how much to do this" - that's awesome, in nyc this is like expensive yoga classes or something - but it's not, it's free.

some links from some conversations...

thanks,

i usually just have the iphone in my pocket at all times, i have an arm band that i don't use that much now, everyone went shirtless (not too crazy, gloves are a good idea though) so the phone stayed in my pocket. the pants i have for cold weather running are these:

the pricing seems off, i got them for less than $100.

they're warm, waterproof-ish and the pockets are small the phone doesn't bounce around. the gps works fine on the bridge too.

cheers,

Cool thanks.
Really surprised that your iphone could get a GPS signal being in your pocket.
Good to know!
