the coldest run

Today I went on the coldest run ever.  Since I am attempting to train for a half marathon in what is shaping up to be one of the coldest January's on record, I had to lower my standards a bit.

Coldest runOther than attempting not to freeze to death, it was a pretty good run.  I was definitely cold by the time I was done (I had a harder and harder time moving quickly enough to generate enough heat to keep me warm), but I still have all my fingers and toes (for now).

I think this is definitely the low end of my temperature threshold, I think it would be pretty miserable to run at anything much colder.  The whole time I kept thinking about how nice it will be to run at 70+ degrees.  When I told John that he said, "but you hate running when it's hot!" This is true.  It's just hard to remember that when you are trying not to freeze to death...
