Chilly anyone?

Note: -22*C is -7*F

It didn't feel so bad until I ran into the wind. Didn't realize the gusts were that strong. But I got my run (1 hr 10 min) in. Spent 10 min in the pool until someone decided to vomit and well..no more swimming for me. Too bad, I was just about to warm up.

You got puke. I got poop. At least I wasn't in the pool for it.

Oh my goodness - no way could I run in weather like that. Way to go Cliff.

Oh Yuck! At least I don't have to put up with someone else's puke on the road.

Got my bike out on the road for the first time this year and got to experience bone-chilling 30 mph gusts! Not as cold as where you are though! Way to get that run in!

Sorry about the bad luck in the pool!

you are a better/stronger man than I! I complain when it's below 40 degrees! And swimming in vomit? Why was this person even in the pool in the first place????

I haven't run in weather that cold since I moved from the east coast 15 years ago!

ok, now I'm feeling guilty that I felt "cold" at the start of the Austin Marathon yesterday when it was in the 30's (I won't even mention that at the finish it was in the 60's).

Puke in the pool. Y.U.C.K.

Hey Cliff. I think we are all ready for spring!

In the snow I just run in my trail shoes. I have Mizuno Ascends and they seem to be all I need.
