Another Clothing Dilemma

The weather here in FL has been neurotic lately: One day it's as cold as 39 degrees, the next, it's 80. So, while I was bundled up for my runs early in the week last week, by the end of the week, I was back to shorts and a sleeveless tee. This morning, though, it was a bit chilly again, with temps in the mid-40s, so I again donned the capri running tights and a long-sleeved shirt over a tech tee.

My dilemma this morning, though, had nothing to do with what to dress me in and everything to do with what to dress Norah in. Since she's riding, not running, her dress concerns are very different: She won't get warm from the workout, plus she'll have the breeze from the run. So, she got bundled up, complete with a fuzzy blanket covering her and her doll -- who, along with the doll's bottle, sippy cup, plate and fork, all regularly go on runs with us; it's quite the stroller-full of occupants and their accessories.

She seemed just fine during the run, but afterward, she did have cold little fingers; still, she didn't complain so I take that as a sign that she was comfortable during her ride. As for me, I got warm enough half way through our 3 miler to shed my long sleeved shirt and go in my t-shirt. It's sweaty work pushing 40+ pounds of stroller, toddler, and baby doll, even if it is only 49 degrees out!

Obviously Norah takes after you; being a warrior and all!

I was running in 40s today too, and also over dressed (ended up just in a tshirt). But it's definitely a different story being out there for just a ride. Sounds like Norah and dolly did just fine.

This must be the month of running bloggers. Welcome back. Sorry it took me 10 days to notice your return. Sounds really cold. Brr. No really, I feel for you. Cheers!

Does Norah need Smart Wool mittens to keep her little fingers warm? Do they even sell them in Florida?

Sounds like Norah and her doll were comfy, despite the cold hands.

Put some mittens on her! PS-Miller doesn't seem to mind having ice cold feet. It must be these FL kids.

Norah and Rylee are so similarly doll obsessed. I have to carry Rylee's dolls, doll crib, doll accessories & doll clothes every where. :)
