If you want to make a mask, here are simple, step-by-step instructions from the CDC on how to do just that, whether or not you know how to sew.
Eventually, I’d love to replace the seats with fancier versions. Perhaps some leather ones from a junked-out truck could be scored, or heated and cooled seats could be purchased aftermarket. For now, these will do fine with some fixes. That includes a sad armrest that needs new cushioning and a tear on the front left of the driver’s seat that needs a needle and thread.

Everyone loves a comfy fleece, but they’re not all created equal. It turns out that traditional fleeces have a problem that you probably don’t know: It’s called microfiber shedding, and it happens in the washing machine. Tiny particles of synthetic material are washed away from the garment and end up polluting the water system. While the source of microplastic pollution is complicated, synthetic fabrics are a cause for concern. Enter the Power Air Houdi from Houdini. The top was created with a process developed by Houdini and Polartec that results in a fabric that sheds five times fewer particles than the best fleece on the market now. While traditional fleece has exposed fibers, the Power Air features fibers that trap the air in small pockets that are knitted into the fabric. You’ll just notice that the hoodie is light, comfortable, and excellent at keeping you warm. Yet it’s also breathable, so you don’t overheat when wearing it inside or during exercise. It’s made from 54% recycled polyester, and with extended sleeves with thumb loops, a two-way zipper, a high-collared hood, and a bottom hem with a hidden draw cord, it’s designed to keep you warm for any outdoor adventure. It’s good for both the environment and your comfort.
Layering for winter running can be a challenge. If you start with an ultra-thin, moisture-wicking top like you wear most of the year and pair it with a light shell, chances are you’re going to stay cold. But if you add a fleece insulation layer, that probably makes you too hot. The solution: Change to a base layer with some insulation like the Waffle Layer by Tracksmith. This 100% Merino wool top is naturally moisture-wicking and odor-resistant. The waffle pattern in the fabric traps air against the skin to increase insulation, but it also helps excess heat to escape once you warm up. The soft and cozy next-to-skin feel is welcome on cold winter mornings — it may just provide the boost of motivation to push you out the door. When the sun’s out and the temperature isn’t too low, you can wear this on its own. Add a jacket for protection from the wind and rain, and you’re set for everything but the most frigid conditions. The piece is so comfortable — not to mention good looking — that it just may become your go-to top for any winter activity.

Had enough of all that serene winter wonderland decor, the birch trees and reindeer and sleighs? Ready to change it up this year and boogie down?
It’s the time of the year when we have to start covering up, which for most of us — at least in the northern part of the country — means it’s time to break out the fleece. These versatile pieces of clothing are lightweight and breathable, meaning that you can wear them indoors without overheating, yet they provide enough insulation for outdoor comfort in most conditions. But the drawback to a traditional fleece becomes evident if you wear it outside during blustery weather — the wind cuts right through the fabric. The usual solution is to wear a windproof shell (and waterproof; a fleece doesn’t do well when wet, either).
