Minne- F-ing Freezing - apolis

OK, Ed.... try this without shorts......

-2 WITHOUT windchill yesterday morning in Minneapolis (where I was for business). With windchill, -14. I hate to admit it, I thought browsing the web and riding when I returned to Chicago was a much more productive use of my time.

It was a sizzling 12 degrees here in Chicago for my run back from the VW dealership in Evanston. Musta been a bit colder with the windchill cuz my fingers were freezing. Again, love to see Ed in shorts in this weather this week.

5 degrees... yes, FIVE. With a windchill in the below zero range. 9.6 miles in this junk is not fun. Bosco started three-legged running (no Ed, not the kind you think) because the sidewalk was sooooo cold. A quick visit or two to Cricket Hill on the trip. Three layers, including a thick UnderArmor leggings and shirt as well as windpants. Just barely enough! I'm not divulging pace as I'm going to blame the cold.

Chris, fix that leg and Rick.... you're gonna get out here soon.

Some insightful views on winter running from the web.......

Finally, my training exposed on the internet for all:

No heckling!!!
