Which brings me to the worst running conditions: 110 degree heat and sunny. I'd rather run in the snow. Seriously.
Living in Tennessee, I get to endure all kinds of running conditions: rain, heat, sleet, "snow", black ice, fog, tornadoes, monsoons, wildlife, cyclists who don't know how to properly ride bikes, stupid drivers, etc. - sometimes all within the same week. The good thing is if we don't like the weather, we just wait a few days for it to change.
So far, in January, I have run in every type of clothing (or lack of clothing) possible. I've run in the high 20's and the high 60's - in the same week. This past Sunday I ran in shorts, and Monday night I ran in layers. It rained both days, but there was a 30 degree difference in temperature. When I wake up in the morning I have no idea what to wear to work. I don't even believe what my weather app says anymore.
Usually, it's rain or shine.
But sometimes it snows:
That's Tennessee "snow" for ya. Pretty, huh?
Right now, we are under a Winter Weather Advisory. I'm not even sure I know what that means around here. Does it mean that the sidewalk might be a little slick? Or does it mean there's a possibility there will be patches of white stuff on the bushes? Or that you might have to let your car run for 10 minutes before you leave the driveway?
Really, I don't know. I just pay attention to the school closings. I love the Snowbird. He's music to a teacher's ears.
All runners are different, so what are your favorite running conditions?
