Funky Kicks 2019
This morning 10.3 miles at minus 20 deg F with only a light breeze. And an attack of runner's trots to liven things up.

I know a runner pulling a sled 160 miles across Northern Wisconsin this weekend and the starting temp was -10 degrees. I think they've got you all beat.
Nobody likes a braggart.
18 miles this morning, 18º at the start, 24º at the end.
Probably the closest I'll come to qualifying in Round Rock, Texas.
First post of the season. This morning I ran over 18 miles (30 km) in 16 degrees F (-9 celcius) on the thermometer. Winter has started yesterday in Montreal.
I was not going to run 43 miles this morning.

I forgot. 100 miles, 95 degrees, two weeks ago, Javelina Jundred.
Break on through
26 miles at 21 degrees - Roxbury Marathon. Winter is here in Connecticut!
"Not to touch the Earth, not to see the Sun, nothing left to do but run, run, run..."
this feels a little bit like cheating----but I guess I am in on a technicality.
according to my phone ----3.2 miles at 3 degrees.
wife is pissed that I went----but other than that it was a beautiful run---right at sunrise ,an inch or 2 of snow on the ground, perfectly clear,cloudless deep blue sky and absolutely zero wind.
I ran about the same route 2 days ago and I thought at the time "I may not run the furthest or the fastest---but I DO have the first effing footprints down the trail this morning"----was glad to see they were still visible this morning.
The Wrong Team
I finally get to join! 10 mi in the following (was away from my normal location):
5:52A (prior to start): 5 F, WC -9 F
6:52A (during): 4F/-8F
7:52A (during): 3F/-8F
8:52A (after): 4F/-7F
The one thing that kept me going the last couple of miles is I thought it was getting warmer and didn't want to end up missing out by a stinkin' degree F or something.
Runs wrong way down one-way streets.
Ah, I forgot. I'm in easily the past two days, with temps of 5F and -4F respectively.
I made it to the club today as well. Below 0, and ran 4.25 miles.
Calm and felt fairly warm. No complaints here.
Easier to do here in Michigan than when I lived in Dallas!
#1: Do what I can do (250+ training days, 300+ aerobic hours).
#2: Race (Hurt the Dirt 1/2 marathon - 4/27, Grand Rapids Tri 70.3 - 6/9, MSU Gran Fondo - 6/22, ODRAM - 8/10, Michigan Titanium 70.3 - 8/18, Grand Rapids Marathon - 10/20)
13.1 miles in snow and 6F. Real feel well below zero. Happy new year everyone!
I think this may be the first time I'm in the club (maybe in the 1990s when I was young and a lot hardier). 12 today in 9 (-6 wind-chill) and 7+ yesterday in 4 (-15 windchill).
Happy New Year. 7.6 miles today. Temp -9. Wind chill -24. Yeah!
