More miles than degrees club (Read 4437 times)

    9 miles at -18 degrees. My feet and hands were warmest parts on body. Normally the opposite when just standing around. I won't be out there next few days with wind chillls near -50 degrees.

      1F in Chicago.  -23F WC.  Nobody out there on the Lake.  Checked in my 6miles.  Really wasn't so bad.

        This should be no problem for me, or a lot of others the next couple of days.

            Oh, come on! i want in on the club.

              10 miles, -3 F.  And a nice 13 mph N wind as a bonus.  (Not sure where that would put the windchill).  Thankfully, this frigidity is supposed to pull out of my area pretty fast.

                Not that it counts for anything, but I bike commuted as usual yesterday, and my ride home was in a windchill of -50!  It was definitely a first, and kind of fun.  I came home and practically had a heat stroke.  So many layers.  The only problem I have is getting something to cover the face that will still let me breathe and won’t fog up my goggles.

                  6.5 miles at 6 degrees on Sunday Jan 27. Didn't brave the sub-zero temps today with the wind but maybe Friday...

                    -20 with -51 real feel. Does sitting on my ass count?

                      I think you basically just need to lace up, step outside, do a jogger-intersection dance, and you're good.

                        Do the boiling mug of water toss while you are out there.  It is dorky but kind of fun (I’ll admit that I already did it this morning).

                          I thought this thread was over after Bob's Badwater post.

                           

                          4+ @ 1 degree, -20WC. Not bad at all, even on bridges.

                              Does that really work? Saw it on Youtube and only half believed it.

                                Me too.  But maybe this somehow puts us on a par with Bob.  Not.
