On Tuesday night, I did a short run with the Nike+ Central Run Club. I wasn’t anticipating a big group. Afterall, it was -15 and felt like -22 with the wind.
I arrived to find a brave group of 7 ready to run. That was, without question, the coldest outdoor winter run I’ve ever done. After a few failed attempts, I think I actually layered properly so I wasn’t too cold – unlike one member of our running team who did the whole 5km IN SHORTS! Only my quads and face were cold and by the time we made it back to Starbucks for our warm post-run beverage, I sounded like I was drunk because my lips were frozen. I am seriously considering getting a balaclava for these intense outdoor runs. Running in this weather is crazy. A big shout-out to everyone who came out on Tuesday. We are hardcore.
