Marathon training has officially begun. It started yesterday with a short 3 mile run, and continues today with a five miler.
I’ll be honest, I had forgotten how cold it could be running in winter time. Sure, the setting sun can add a warm glow where it touches, but the moment you are in shadow you really do feel the cold.
Luckily, I was given a nice cosy pair of running tights for my Christmas, and I still have nice warm middle layers from my last marathon attempt, some five years ago. So I was able to go for my run without bothering too much about the cold!
