Northerners do it in the cold

Well, it's been bitterly cold up here - and unusually snowy, too. Boo!

Today it has warmed up. It is finally warmer than -20 C (-4 F) for the first time in about 10 days. It has been as low as -42 C (-43 F) with the wind chill. I didn't run outside that day.

In fact, I have succumbed to the treadmill twice. I haven't run in 2 days. Ugh! As I write this, it is currently -15 C (5 F). Woo hoo! I will most definitely go out for a run after this.

Just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas (or a Happy Holiday season, whichever fits best with you). Here's to a happy and healthy 2009!

Yikes! I'm glad it's not that cold here. It's been bad enough in the high teens/low twenties. And we seldom get snow like this! I haven't run in three days, but it's more along the lines of recovery than too cold. I'm going out for a jaunt around the lake tomorrow.

Have a very Merry Christmas Sarah!

Merry Christmas to you too! I just want you to know that I am tough enough to be a Northerner. I love the cold!

The ones with the Eastern roots make better Northerners!

Now -15 C sounds tropical after what we have experienced the last couple of weeks!

Merry Christmas to you!
