Old age is when you move from illegal to prescribed drugs.
Over here in England the problem is rain, anymore and I'll have to pack up running and start building an Ark, has anyone got any plans for one?
Without ice cream there would be darkness and chaos.
Tramps, thanks for the help I've been out with my tape and I have room to build it in my back garden, the only problem is do you know a good cypress wood supplier which gets its wood from sustainable forestry?

Dr. Noakes said, that even in temperatures as low as 10 to minus-20 degrees, a runner probably needs to wear no more than a track suit, mittens or gloves and a hat.
Regarding my 200th marathon in 8:16:36.6 at age 73 compared to Ed Whitlock’s 2:54:48 at age 73 and my first one at 3:52:15 at age 34, "That was a good day. It was never a struggle, . . . . almost like walking"
Did I mention the animal component of this project?
That's pretty scary, BTY, and a good lesson learned. Fear really is a great motivator, isn't it?
I don't usually have a problem being out in low temperatures, except for my hands. There were too many chilly morning when, no matter what gloves I had on, my hands would always go numb before I could generate enough body heat to finally get them to start to warm up. A couple of years ago, I got some heavy-duty mittens from LL Bean, and they have performed beautifully! The difference the right gear can make is truly amazing, and is so important when the temperature dips to the low zone.
