this is what ten below looks like....and why 25 seems WARM

Yesterday, as I mentioned, was one of the colder readings we have taken at our house, ten below!  I run everyday (except when I don't! Last year's running calendar had a few January days when instead of mileage SNOW or COLD was written).

Running yesterday wasn't as bad as you might think.  There was no wind.  Last week was not as cold but very windy which is a LOT worse.  You dress for it and since you are moving you are creating some nice heat.  I took this picture because the ice buildup on my eyebrows and eyelashes was pretty bad, then it began melting......later?  It got up into the 20s which seemed SO warm.

I don't think I need to experience that sort of cold. Brrr.

brrrrr. I have become a wimp. Anything below 40 is too cold for me now!

Since I'm in New Jesey right now im experiencing some cold weather also, yet it's warmer here then there. Today 35 felt almost balmy.

No. Just no. Even in Minnesota I didn't run outside in January.

I applaud you for keeping up with your exercise even in those types of temps!

I've experienced those temps but I prefer to stay indoors!
