|Winter running gear|
And to break it down a little further...following is the order I garb up for maximum efficiency since it already takes me twenty minutes from the time I get up to the time I step out the basement door into the enveloping darkness.
1.) Road I.D. (hook and loop closure)
2.) Under Armour junk containment system
3.) cotton socks
4.) Brooks spandex (zippers on lower legs and drawstring waist)
5.) Garmin heart rate monitor (hook closure, requires a trip to the bathroom to splash water on myself)
6.) poly pro base layer
8.) Marker over layer (zipper top)
9.) Asics 2100 series with optional YakTrax (double knot laces)
10.) reflective vest (hook and snap fasteners and button to activate the taillight)
12.) Garmin 305 which I put outside to locate satellites between steps 8 and 9 (buckle closure)
13.) fleece gloves
Pending weather conditions, occasionally I have to add another layer which is normally a vest. Add in some stretching and a few passes on the foam roller and time slips away. If you can think on a way to streamline this garbing process, please let me know.
