Guess what my blogging friends?
These are the last few days of Winter! Insert 20 dancing emoji woman here.
Long story short, if you lived on the east coast this winter was rough.
Running outside was rough.
Walking outside was rough.
December and January weren’t too terrible. Then in February it got very cold, very fast. After I got back from Upstate NY it just kept getting colder and colder. I honestly felt like I never left that area. The days we received snow were the better days because it meant it was warmer and less windy…
Now that I’m done complaining about the weather I thought I would talk about some of things that got me through the winter this year!
None of these products were sponsored or afflicant links. Here are some of the top things I think got my through the winter.
I bought this jacket is November. I didn’t think it would become my best purchase of the season. It’s warm and I have no regrets. It was staple jacket and most people at work don’t remember a time I wasn’t wearing it. (No really…). I like to add photos of my jacket in action and on dates so here we go.
Basically if you have seen me in the last 3 months, it’s probably been in this jacket.
Injinji wool Socks
These babies are long and warm (TWSS). They kept me feet warm but also came above my leggings so that my ankles didn’t get cold. I wish I had more pairs but alas Injinji was sold out when I went online. They are my favorite sock in the history of socks.
Without my personal space heater, I would have some miserable days. The personal space heater allows me to control the temperature around me without causing everyone else to live in a sauna.
Two Vacations in the winter:
As most people know, T was deployed during most of the winter. It was a cold, miserable and lonely month. Having two vacations with friends really helped propel me through the months of January and February.
The end of January, I went to Rochester and visted Laura, Heather and Brittany. Hashtag Dream team (#DreamTeam),
Then obviously at the end of February I ran my Marathon in sunny Phoenix.
I think having things to look forward too really kept me balanced and ready to propel through the winter.
Questions for you:
How did you get through the winter this year?
