The temperature in NYC continues to plummet to arctic lows. This morning it was 10°F, with a wind chill factor of -6°F.
Without question, this would be a day at the beach for most Canadians. but for everyone else south of the 49th Parallel, it was incredibly cold. To prepare for my five-mile run at 6:00 AM, I had to put on extra gear to keep from freezing my tail on the trail. Some of the garments included:
RRS lined Gore-tex jacket: $200.00.
Nike Gore-tex lobster mitts: $75.00.
EMS windproof fleece hat: $40.00
Neoprene mask: $15.00.
Looking like a bank robber: Priceless.
