      We are fragile creatures on collision with our judgment day.

        Colder here then in many years so finally get to join this club! One degree temperature, 2.16 miles!  Wore layers, cold air stung a little when wind blew, but nothing froze or snapped off!

          It's been in the teens here all week. Today it dipped low enough during my 11.75 miles in 11 degrees F that I did more miles than degrees. After a warm-up, I had 6 tempo miles and then a couple of cool down miles. I cooled down quickly and some sweat on my head and back started getting pretty cold at the end.

            What's the minimum?  Sunday AM forecast is for zero.  Can I take two steps and declare I've done it?  Or is 1 mile the minimum to have at least one mile(s) more than degrees?

            5k 24:03 (1/19); 5M 40:50 (11/19); 10k 52:27 (3/19); Half 1:56:33 (10/19)

            Upcoming race(s): E. Murray Todd Half, Lincroft, 3/8; RunAPalooza Half, Asbury Park, 4/4

              not bad for mile 25

                nothing froze or snapped off!

                 

                Yeah, it's bad when that happens.

                  14 miles, 8-9 degrees. Think it was around 5 degrees earlier in the week for my 7 miler

                    What counts? The temperature when you start your run or when you finish? It was 4 when I left the house, I ran 8 and it was 11 when I finished.

                      I'm no judge but I say that counts!

                        5* and 10 snowy trail miles in central PA.

                        Not running for my health, but in spite of it.

                          17.3 miles in 16 degrees F. Windy — gusts up to 20 mph in the face ... at the turnaround point. First outdoor run in a couple weeks due to double digit negative temperatures during much of that stretch.

                            This was my question also.  I ran 12.  Started at 8.4, ended at 11.7.  I think that based on the 11.7, I'm in on a technicality anyway.

                            Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

                              I feel like the club is going to fill up today.  18 miles, 10 degrees at the start, probably 16 at the finish (car still said 10 when I got in, but warmed to 17/18 when I started driving.

                               

                              I can break the start finish scenario with my bighorn 50/52. 27 degrees at the start, but 75 when I finished 13 hours later.  I don't think that should count.

                                Saturday - 13 miles at 10 degrees;

                                Sunday - 10 miles at 1 degree!

                                Looks like it will start to get warmer this week around here, anyway.
