According to Facebook, it snowed in Calgary yesterday. Oh so sucky…
It is technically still summer and even though I taught my son to say “in Summer, we do NOT talk about winter”, I feel the need to start planning my new ski wardrobe. Yes, ski wardrobe. If I am going to hit the slopes, I am going to dress for it. My top requirement is warmth but I don’t want to look like a rent-a-rebel so here’s some stuff I’ve found online:
Hopefully a trip to the States in the fall will land me to a pair of skis. My current pair are about twenty years old, long and straight – you know, the kind you’d see on a vintage travel poster… Anyway, I already have a jacket, ski pants and helmet but it is still fun to shop around.
I think I am mostly excited about skiing because I am going through a bit of runner’s fatigue. A lot of long lonely runs have worn me out so once my races are over, I should be more positive about layering up.
How about you? Any big plans to deal with winter?

* Yes, these mitts are crazy expensive… Mike swears they are the warmest thing out there. I have self-diagnosed Raynaud’s Disease so they may be worth it.
