Sometimes late nights and early starts can have a strange effect on me. Essentially I'm still in sleep mode, even after several coffees and it takes me a while to realize that yes, I am awake, yes, I am out of bed, and yes, I'm about to head out the door for a run. The danger in all this is sometimes the autopilot malfunctions and things go awry.

Like this was only as I was heading down the front steps that I realized that while I had managed to get dressed in my running gear, for some reason I was still wearing my ugg boots. It was funny because I had had this nagging feeling that I had forgotten something but couldn't quite put my finger on what it was! Until I looked down at my feet and instead of seeing a pair of filthy grotty Asics (I really must buy a new pair) I saw ugg boots! Hmmm, not quite running gear. Not sure if anyone saw me but I backtracked inside pretty quickly to change the footwear.

The run itself was uneventful. The temperature is dropping though - 3.5*c this morning....brrrr.

I like this. That's something your dumb daughter would do. Wear them next time we do a 6' training run and I might be able to keep up.

A balmy 12C this evening :)

LOL. Why not ugg boots? It's gotta be much more comfortable than running barefoot !!
