warmth in layers

The calendar says that the winter solstice is two weeks away but the temperature says it must be here already. I guess the weather wizard decided to give us the gift of an early (winter) season. When I headed out to walk this evening it was 23 degrees with a bit of a wind creating a wind chill equivalent temperature of 13 degrees Fahrenheit.

Brr... chilly!

Exercising outside in cold air begins as a mental exercise, convincing myself that dressing in (the right) layers will create a comfortable temperature. Warmth in layers works; a good brisk walk left me happy and warm.
