It’s September and, for some of us, snow will soon be falling. Where I live (Calgary, Canada) rumour has it we may even get snow this weekend. I sure hope not. I’m just not ready for it. Are you? Do you know what to wear when it’s not a wonderful, hot sunny day? Well maybe this site can help you. The Competitive Runner has a great write up on “Casting off Winter Time Chills.”
The article covers topics such as Cold Weather Attire and another section suggests guidelines for what to wear at various temperatures.
Of course the site has a lot more information to offer runners. Be sure to check out the links in the menu on the left.
Got a Web site to recommend? Leave me a comment with the details.

For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep.
Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003.
Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon.
Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.
