          it's all good, fun thread, although I will have to move to have any reasonable chance of club membership living  ne of Seattle.   10.6 yesterday at 24 degrees.  probably as close as will come.  could move to Eastern side of state, or visit daughter at WSU.  Guess could put on some aktraks & go trailrunning up in the Cascades.

              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

              In it for the long run..

                My run on 12/28    0 degrees, 5 miles.

                  I ran 7mi today, it was 6F at the start of my run, 2F at the end.  (don't ask how it dropped 4F in an hour, I'm going by the weather networks temperatures).  No windchill, thank goodness.

                    6 when it was 5 this morning

                      18 miles, 16 degrees today.


                      I'm back!

                        Way more miles than degrees M-F this week... I was in Banff; typically it was 15 below every day when I went running.*

                         

                        *Which is why I did everything on the indoor 100m track. But hey, I still managed 0 every day outdoors, which is more miles than degrees.


                        Blaaahhhh

                          Does this count? I was outside feeding the horses when I saw that it was -3F, so I ran across the yard to the barn. Just to make sure I had all my bases covered I ran backwards for a bit too. I would add it to my running log, but then I'd have include Arctic Cat snow boots under running gear.

                            Not sure what's up with me.  I usually lock up in the basement with the dreadmill, but this winter I've been getting out. 

                             

                            Yesterday afternoon 3.5 mi at 2degrees .....  This morning 11mi at 7degrees.

                              easy to achieve today, it as -4F when I went out.  10 1/4 miles.

                                My dog and I just did a mile @ 0 degrees. It was all sunshiney, so I had no idea it was that cold until I got going and my breath started freezing,
