I think I was but couldn't tell since I was at work the whole day and just got back from a very cold commute. Much colder than last night. I was on my way to work, commuting, this morning. I think this morning the temp was in the negative. I was passing through Prospect Park. I saw a camera man and began waving at him. I didn't know they were from NBC until "Al" decided to ask me few questions. The first thing he asked was "no matter what?" I told him I was out training for racing in the spring. He then asked me how do I prepare to ride in this weather. BTW, there is a snow storm coming in tomorrow and all the weather news begin to hype the storm. I told him you need to wear a windproof and water resistance out shell coupled with wool socks and skiing gloves. He wasn't sure what I meant when I told him I was out training for racing. I am not even sure if he knows that Kissena organizes a lot of races in the park when Spring comes around.
