Apparently Mother Nature knew what I needed to do this morning, because after a week of mostly dry weather, we had a storm last night that brought about conditions ideal for me to do my 6 mile run this morning and try out the YakTrax and Little Hotties hand warmers I was given to review! Normally, if I'd woken up and seen the roads looking like this, I would have headed right for the treadmill, but today I got to run in it!
I am one of those people who always has cold hands, even after running several miles. I was concerned that these would get too hot, especially once I got into my run, but they were actually great! They fit right into the palm of the hand and you can tuck them into a pocket, pouch or into your gloves, which is what I did. I will definitely be using these when I go on my long runs on cold, windy days. For some reason, just having warmth in your hands makes your whole body feel warmer.
