It's too cold, don't go outside! (Read 280 times)

    I actually heard them say that on the local evening news today. The statement said medical authorities advise don't go outside unless you need to. The temp. is only going to 15F tonight and 7F tomorrow night. Cold but not dangerous for active people dressed properly. people hear that crap and it's not surprising they think we're crazy! Shocked Since we are runners.......We need to be outside Big grin Makes me want to scream.........

    Courage ! Do one brave thing today...then run like hell.

      Call the news desk and tell them you're going for a run and they can film you if they want. I had friends in Los Angeles who would not take their baby out when it was below 60 degrees.

          I had a friend that used to ride his bike in the snow (had spiked tires for traction on the ice) and folks used to always stop and offer him a ride, convinced nobody would be out if they weren't desperate. It's 37 here and I was returning from a run today and my next-door neighbor saw me and said "Wait, you mean you're out here and you don't HAVE to be?" Surprised

                  DD and I went skiing yesterday, and the high temp was maybe 5 degrees F. I guess somehow people think skiing in the winter is OK, but running or bike riding aren't.

                  I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.
