Running in the cold, and trying some of the POSE philosophy.


So with this weekend being a chilly 27 degrees, I thought this would be a good opportunity to figure out “how to dress” for the cold weather.  I did a quick google to find some charts on what people recommended,

Downers (Now I am referring to hills)


About a month ago, I pulled my left calf muscle while doing a long hill run.  I hit the top of the mile or so long hill, looked around to enjoy the scenery and headed back down.  As I started
