>General Running>More miles than degrees club
Joined the club a few times in december, but yesterday it was -35F with the wind (-18F on the thermometer) and ran a slow 5 miles with four layers on.
On new year's day it was 1F (-15F with the wind) and ran 5 slow miles too.
I say things. I do things. Does it all have to make sense?
I've had my sights on this club since I started the Holiday Streak. Something weird is happening to me and feeling a little "twisted". When planning my run, I now think if, I go a little earlier, or wait until tonight when it's colder, maybe I can joing the More Miles than Temp club. I can't wait to see what my kids think when I tell them I ran 2.11 miles in 2* F.
I'm experiencing this too. "They" promised 3F this morning, but it was a balmy 8. Disappointed, didn't make the club.
Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject. - S.J.
Technically, if it was -6 this morning and I ran 0 miles, I still ran more miles than degrees. No?
It was -9F this morning, but I couldn't work up the guts for my 12 miler in that. It's warmed up to a toasty 8F above now, which should still get me a membership...
"When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem." Emil Zatopek

Started out at zero degrees and ended at a temp of 5 degrees. 10 mile run on snowshoes. Took me 3 hours lol. Now I must eat all the things.

I think somewhere in this thread it says you have to run at least one mile. Sorry.
I resigned my membership from this club last year, but I got sucked back in by a New Year's Day "Polar Dash" in Minneapolis. 14 mile race with temperature at -8 deg F at the start (warming up to a balmy -7 deg F by the time I finished).
This is me after finishing (my face froze into that smile -- I was not at all happy):
Some other guy who only ran the 10K (quite fast, I might add):
Hey, SubDood! I ran the 10K that day. Yup, it was a little chilly. I'm impressed that you did the whole 14. You were FAST, too! Congratulations.
I've stopped reporting to the thread because I swear I rejoin the club every time I run. Right SubDood? Stupid Minnesota...

Joining the club with 7.47 @ 7 degrees. In Yak-trax. Not as impressive as most here!
Just bought a pair of YakTrax at lunch today. My marathon tomorrow should get me in the club. 0 degrees predicted at the start.
HTFU? Why not!
Since it was 0F outside, it was a simple matter of getting out the door. It was colder earlier in the day, but it was plenty sunny out and no wind when I headed out and pretty cozy. I actually felt wimpy by waiting until it warmed up to 0 before I went out.
High of -4 Monday, low of -14. If I could somehow get 1 mile in...
Ran 12 miles today. 8F at the start, 10F at the finish. Actually was too warm for most of it.
Next week, the low on Monday is -20F and the high is -5F, so I should easily rejoin. Twice.
-8 this morning. I ran 3 miles.
ran 10 miles in 7 degrees temps this morning in Columbia, MD.
