I was optimistic I would be able to do a fairly long run today but when my legs froze and then went numb after 3 miles, I knew that was out of the question. (I was hoping to be able to run about 10 miles.)
Shortly after 3 miles, I turned around and headed back home. There was no way I was going to be able to go much further.
My legs were bright red and numb when I got back. They looked like I had just finished an ice bath. I wonder if subjecting my legs to these cold temperatures could cause adverse long-term effects?
Distance: 7 miles
I don’t consider myself a fashionista, but I am always intrigued with the current fashion trends.
Here are some of the current fashion trends I have been seeing around Alaska—well just Anchorage.
Most people swear by these -40* boots, so I bought a pair for Craig last Christmas because he has a hard time keeping his feet warm.
Maybe he is an exception, but they did not keep his feet warm—at all. I’ve had a couple other friends tell me they had the same problem. Despite their lack of warmth for some individuals, I hear they are a great rain boot.
I’m seeing these headbands pop up all over this winter. I think there may be a local business selling them??
It seems as though UGGs have only recently come into style here. (It usually takes a while until the trends come up here.)
Skoop Down Skirt
I get it: it’s cute plus it help keep you warm. . . yet, I don’t get it. I think they look kind of weird. I don’t think I’ve seen too many people be able to pull them off.
These have been a staple around here for a while and everyone has a pair.
A waterproof insulated boot that is popular for fishing. . . or with a skirt apparently. (There is a very lose dress code here. )
I’m not sure how I ended up with four pairs of boots/shoes and only two other things. I guess we like our feet warm and dry!
What is a current trend in your area?
