Hi all. I’ve been gone for a bit…going through some really tough stuff with my daughter right now. It’s been rough.
Anyway, I know many of you have been waiting nearly a year for my first style post. HaHa…probably not. Anyway, here it is.
We have been having a cold snap here (for Georgia anyway). I always wear gloves, but lately I’ve been having multiple episodes of Raynauds phenomenon in my hands. Not necessarily when I run, but sometimes when I’m done. Or sometimes just in the morning on my way to work.
Raynauds phenomenon is a circulatory disturbance where the circulation to extremities becomes temporarily short circuited, causing discoloration and tingling. The episodes last for me for about a half hour. There is nothing serious about this, but it is annoying and slightly uncomfortable. It’s kind of creepy looking
I read on a web-site that mittens are better for keeping hands warm. So yesterday I stopped at Old Navy for some mittens.
Now you have to admit, these mittens have style!!
But wait, that’s not all…
The mitten part is a little ‘hoodie’ that you pull down to reveal fingerless gloves!!
And, as if it couldn’t get any better, they were $1.03!! I’m pretty sure I’m going back today for some more!
I have a race on Saturday (the first one of the year), so I can try these out. It is supposed to be really cold (for us). I’m excited about the race b/c it is my birthday race and I do it every year. The first year I did it with my daughter…which is a nice memory. Here’s to hoping things get better with her soon.
