>General Running>More miles than degrees
It seems like in past years there has been a thread for this, so I figured we needed one for this winter. Who's done a run this season where the miles put in outnumber the degrees of temperature? Temps are in Fahrenheit, and staying inside when the temps are below zero doesn't count!
I racked up my first two of these this weekend... 5 miles in -2 on Sat., and 15 miles in 8 degrees (at the start, anyway) on Sun.

The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff

I went to Alaska when it was -40 and didn't run at all.
0 > -40
It was -20F yesterday when I did 5.5 miles. Really was not that bad, my feet were VERY cold the first mile. The part that scares me is if you would for some reason need to stop running, I don't think you would last long in those temps.
I just wish the snow was gone. Running on these surfaces is very hard on my Achilles.
I should've posted here on NY morning when I did 3.1 miles in -46*C (-49*F) windchill.
ETA: Base temp without windchill was -36*C.

5.24 miles yesterday in -11.4F, -14 windchill
8.26 miles today in -9.6F, -15 windchill

"Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'" - Peter Maher
"Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run." -Monte Davis
Yesterday ran 6 miles when the temperature was -6 Fahrenheit. (both are rounded as I do km and celcius). Wasn't actually too bad except my legs were cold cause I couldn't locate my really thick, warm pants that I usually wear at that temp. Worse today but I wimped out (err, rest day...hehe)
-12C equals 10.4F
