Did 18 today. Ran from my house to the lakefront which totally sucked. The icy, slushy crap is treacherous as all hell. 3.5 miles to the lakefront then south along the inner drive to Navy Pier -- footing was good there and the rest of the way south on the lakefront all the way to McCormick Place. Pace was 8:19 -- but that included some walking over icy patches. Every winter I swear it is the last winter I'll spend here -- and 20 years later I'm still f-ing here. Going to be below zero tomorrow. Can't wait. Still overweight - 159 lbs/18.1% body fat. Down 6 pounds for the week.
