Three layers were enough for what I think was about a 4 km run. I ended up sticking to residential roads that were paved and sidewalks that were clear so it was a round-about run and not my normal from home run. Going from the sidewalks to the roadways was quite an ankle workout and that slowed me down a bit. Boy, I wish I knew exactly how far I ran. If I had a Garmin, I would know for sure!

Layers, Layers & Layers
When it's minus 29C with a windchill of minus 39C, it's all about many layers and making it a short and quick run! I think I look pretty scary in this shot! Sometimes I even wear sunglasses, then I look really scary. If you look closely, you will see the polar bear on the front of my hat and one of the side of my gaitor. J Mo's and D Mo's Mom made this set for me a few years back and it is perfect for conditions like today! It's made of fleece, it allows me to breathe through the material plus keeps me warm.
