Colorado’s cold helps me exercise

Sure, I grew up in Buffalo, NY so I knew cold, but I have spent my entire adult life living in the warmer climates of Florida and Southern Nevada. If it got cold there, it wasn’t that cold and it didn’t stay cold that long. Since we moved to Colorado in May, I have experienced plenty of cold. I’m not complaining, and this isn’t unexpected. I just need a little adjustment to get used to it.

One of those adjustments was to purchase thermal underwear. I have never owned thermal underwear before. I must say I like it. The Sears Outlet nearby has a great selection of Craftsman and NordicTrac brand thermal pants and shirts … for $6! Yep, $6 thermals are mine. Lots of them.

And here’s the best part: NordicTrac makes treadmills and other exercise equipment. Nice fancy expensive stuff. Their $6 underwear is also quite nice, and since it’s made my the same company that makes exercise equipment like treadmills and elliptical machines, wearing the underwear is just like exercising. Of this I am convinced. I’m wearing some as I write this, which is easily the equivalent of jogging a few miles uphill. Or more.

I can’t wait to get to sleep and run a marathon or two in the warm cuddly comfort of my bed. I will be in amazing shape by Spring.

I wonder if wearing the Craftsman thermals will make me a better handyman.
