      I'm in Indiana. I did 4 miles Saturday morning with our Indy Mini Marathon training group and it really wasn't too bad. 12 degrees. Cold but at 8:00 not very windy. On our way home I had dh drop me off about 7 miles from home so I was able to get my 11 miles in. Let me tell you, by 9:00 it was *cold*. It might have been 16 degrees by then but the wind had kicked up. 25-30 mph gusts. And then about 2 1/2 miles into that last 7 it started to snow. (Of course, at the point where I had to run *into* the wind. Shocked) For about 10 minutes it was like white out conditions. I couldn't see from one telephone pole to the next. Couldn't see cars coming until they were right on me. I ended up running about 10 feet off the road in the grass because the roads were so slick and the cars were freaking me out. LOL! The snow stopped and I was able to turn so that the wind was at my back and the rest of the run wasn't too bad. Tongue I'm wimping out today.

        I did but it really does should not count since it was on a dreadmill. But when air temp is -7 F and wind chills are around -30 F, here in MN. I just cant see myself trying and risking it, so I ran in front of a window to make the expierience less dull. It looks that I will be doing the same till about Wednesday(2-7). Brad

        ON THE 7th DAY, GOD DID AN EASY 6 "Running is a big question mark that’s there each and every day. It asks you, ‘Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'" - Peter Maher

          Ran 4 Saturday and 3.4 on Sunday. My wife is now completely sure that I am certified insane!

          To paraphrase an old poster: Today is the first day of the rest of your training. It doesn’t matter where you started or how far you’ve come. Today is the day. Your training didn’t start 6 weeks ago. Your training started the last time you hit the road. John “the Penguin” Bingham Life is not tried, it is merely survived if you're standing outside the fire
