More miles than degrees club (Read 3824 times)

    And I'm OUT!  9 miles in a heat wave of 15F today! 

     

    The extended forecast is predicting highs in the 30's-40's lows in the 20's-30's beginning next week. I'll be happy to be OUT with temps like that.

      21F this morning, and I was light on my feet, thanks to not having to wear 20 pounds of clothing! Smile

       

      (I did not run 22 miles.)

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

        No heat wave here. I think today was my coldest run to date. I looked at the thermometer this morning and said, "You have got to be kidding me."

         

        -9 degrees, 10 mile run.

         

        If you look closely you can see ice on my face.

         

        I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.

          Wow, Leah.  Just wow.  You are keeping me from feeling sorry for myself this winter.  Shaming me into hardening up!!  The occasional sub-zero run is one thing, but wow.

           

          Nice eyelashes.

            4.2 miles at -3 degrees! Heat wave (15-30 degrees) will pick up soon so this might be the last time I make it this season.

                Now I'm depressed.  I just discovered that I broke my snowshoes this morning.   I had MAYBE 70 miles on them??

                 

                Does anyone need something expensive broken?  Just send it my way!!  That's $350 worth of equipment destroyed in two days.  I'm on a roll people.

                 

                Gah!  That's the second pair I have killed trying to run in them.  Maybe I gotta try the Dions next.  Tubbs and Atlas are no match for me.

                I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.

                  Nice eye snowlashes.

                   

                  Sorry about your snowshoes.  Manufacturers don't expect their products to be actually used??

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

                    Thank you for your condolences!  My only consolation is that I know I can return them, for credit only unfortunately, but at least I will only have to eat the cost of shipping.  My husband thinks that maybe people who run in snowshoes don't really use them too much (or perhaps dont fall as often?) and probably get the parts replaced yearly.  I don't know.  He doesn't think I should replace them. Sad  If only Dion had a better return policy.

                     

                    Oh, and Joe, it's totally okay to feel sorry for yourself!  I think all of us on this thread have earned that right this year.

                     

                    At least it will be warm enough to run with Niko tomorrow.  He really wanted to go with me today but was trying to walk without his feet touching the ground when I took him out to poop this morning lol.

                    I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING.

                      Not a big run, but did 2.1 miles when it was -1 F a couple weeks ago. My first entry!

                        17 miles at 9 degrees (-5 windchill).  But sunny! That sort of helps I guess.

                          12 miles in 2 degrees.  Forecast is definitely looking up, hopefully this is my last entry in this club!

                            Eight miles at -2 on Saturday.  Sun was shinning and no wind, so it was actually pretty nice.

                              It's currently 56 degrees.  I don't anticipate any more entries in this club this season.  Bye folks!
