Clothing/Tooth Inventory

Ate breakfast, worked from home, ran 2.65miles to dentist appointment, ate 1 envelope Hammer Gel after appointment, ran home, ate lunch.

Had a perfect bill of health from my dentist - which I seem to have had all of my dentist appointment for the past few years. I'm somewhat mystified by that, as I haven't made any major changes to my dental care. The theory that occurred while I was in the dentist's chair, which is the one I'm going with for the time being, is that my dietary changes while losing weight eliminated a lot of sugar from my diet, and as a result, my teeth are happier...they were never in terrible shape (aside from night-time grinding), but I often had a filling every couple years....

Now the entertaining part - the clothing required to run in 3-9 degree weather to/from my dentist:
1 pair Nike Dri-Fit running tights, size medium
1 pair generic winter running tights, size XL
1 pair wicking socks
1 pair athletic socks
1 pair wool socks
1 pair Race Ready running shorts
1 Body Glove wicking sleeveless shirt
1 cotton race shirt
1 Pearl Isumi long-sleeve wicking shirt
1 hooded sweatshirt
1 Asics windbreaker
1 Helly Hansen hat
1 pair Nike Dri-Fit fleece running gloves
1 pair Thinsulate mittens

I'm planning on running to/from work as well, and for that, I'll be eliminating/changing a few layers - will be removing wool socks, one of my top layers (probably the sweatshirt), replacing the wicking socks with Injinji toe socks, replacing the windbreaker with my insanely shiny Nike jacket, making me even more of a Nike whore.

This'll make today an 11 mile I just need to make that 11 miles in one run, rather than 4...

What do you do about the sweat?

You make sweatsicles, silly!

Actually, with that many layers on, it gets wicked away from your skin pretty quickly - it meant that I had to change clothing as soon as I got home from the dentist, and that I had to take off most of the top layers when I got to work. Wasn't that bad all in all, though.
