So just in case you didn't already know just how cool I am, I'll tell you.  I AM SOOOO COOL.  We had a blizzard here yesterday morning lasting a few hours and dumping piles of snow.  So much so that I couldn't get my car all the way into my parking spot in front of my condo so I had to leave it on the street.  I got up nice and early this fine cold, snow-filled Saturday morning to go to the gym for Barbell Blast class.  I left even earlier so I could unearth my car and hit the treadmill for 30 minutes before the class.

At home, I got gym ready from the waist up so that when I got to the gym I'd just have to change from my jeans to capris and big boots to runners.  I pulled my hair into a ponytail and put on a baseball cap.  Because it was chilly, I pulled my toque on over top of my baseball cap.  I travel down to the gym and hop on the treadmill.  I'm feeling good.  I increased my speed, increased the incline, Girl Talk download blasting in my iPod while I watch Will & Grace with the subtitles.  I'm enjoying myself!!  I felt confident.  I sauntered out of the fitness machine area and downstairs to the exercise studio where the barbell class is.  I'm the only one in there so I pull out a mat and start stretching.  Another girl comes in, followed by the instructor.  Then my friend Lindsay comes in and sits down next to me and says "nice wooly cap".  Whaaaat????  I raise my hands up to my hat.  And what I feel is not my baseball cap, it's my toque.  I just did 35 minutes on the treadmill and sauntered around the gym and the whole time, I was wearing my toque!!!!!!  I quickly pulled it off and then laughed my ass off for five minutes.  I took pictures when I got home.  I'm hoping that it wasn't quite as noticeable from far away because my toque is also white.  But for sure the people on machines around me saw it.  Oh ugh!! Oh yeah, I am just too cool.
