What?! This Chicago Guy Runs Shirtless All Through The Winter!
Mason Saadat says he skips running on the hottest days in the summer, but runs shirtless almost every day in the winter.
It’s one thing to run in shorts in the winter—that’s not uncommon for some runners, even when the temperature dips to the low to mid-20s—but running shirtless amid the chill of a Chicago winter? That’s how 61-year-old Mason Saadat heads out the door, even when it’s a bone-chilling 5 degrees, according to an article in the Daily Herald newspaper. Saadat, who lives in Arlington Heights, Ill., runs 60 miles a week without a shirt, but he admits he does cover his hands—sometimes with oven mitts—to keep from getting frostbitten fingers.
