        Over the weekend it was eight degrees when I started out for my run (windchill was five below zero) and I ran eighteen miles! Woo Hoo member of the club!  I was wearing my water belt and both of my water bottles froze and I couldn't use them. At one point I stopped and tried to just use the sidewalk to crack them open so I could get a drink, but they were frozen solid at the top, I couldn't even unscrew the lids


        Tomorrow will be worse

          You guys should switch to Celcius - makes getting into this club very easy, since water freezes at zero.

           

          So below freezing can you run backwards and get into the club? How can you run negative mileage? Put a couch into a trailer backwards and get someone to tow you around town? While drinking beer and eating nachos (with that pseudo-cheese nacho stuff that seems to be more plastic than cheese), I bet. Sounds like tailgating...

            Nice suggestions, mooyoutoo.  I think bhearn and Trent should switch to Kelvin.

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

              Never heard of this before but happy to report:  club member. 

              5 miles, 4 degrees (not in by much, but IN...........)

              I love this concept. As if running in single digits didn't feel cool enough already (oh yeah; PUN!)

                Never thought I'd get in since I'm in Florida.  But last week, 26.2 miles in 23 degree.

                  I'm hoping to be inducted into the club tomorrow.  Predicted low, 2F.  I may be "running" on sheet ice, however.

                    Oh, cool.  I did 11 miles in 10 degrees last weekend.  In Montana, it's not too hard to join this club in the wintertime.  

                      I'm in! 4 5 qualifying runs this month:

                       

                      12/3 4.5 miles in -9F

                      12/4 2.1 miles in -8F

                      12/19 5.7 miles in 1F

                      12/20 4.0 miles in 1F

                      12/21 2.4 miles in -11F

                       

                      Air temp at this moment is -11F. I'm thinking about it...

                        Last weekend, I did 8 miles in -8F temps, a reverse square...or something like that...

                          I'm hoping to be inducted into the club tomorrow.  Predicted low, 2F.  I may be "running" on sheet ice, however.

                           

                          So much for this.  Predicted low when I went to bed, -1F.  Actual temp at 5:30 am, 13F.  No time for a 13 mile run, so no cigar for me.

                            Ran a marathon at 17 degrees. It was tough.

                              I'm in. 3.5 miles on Wednesday at 0 F. 6 miles this morning at 5 degrees F. It was almost cold enough for running pants.
