Coldest run ever!!!

3 miles on the schedule today....done!  This was my coldest run ever.....yes, ever!

Take a look at that Wind Chill
My cutoff for running outside typically has been 10 degrees regardless of wind chill.  Today's run was 5 degrees with a wind chill of 16 below.  I decided I didn't want to give up my no treadmill streak so I went outside.  Please note, you must have the right gear to run outside in these conditions.  If you don't have the gear, please don't go outside and chance getting frostbite.  Leave the outdoor running to us professionals. haha!

Here's the list of what I wore:

Synthetic underwear
Compression shorts(UA)
Two pairs of cold weather tights - one compression, one regular fit(UA cold gear)
Winter socks with wool(Experia)
A winter synthetic shirt(UA cold gear)
Ibex wool long sleeve running 1/4 zip
Headsweats Toaster Beanie
Manzella - Warmest Gloves with Mitten pullover
Salomon running shoes with Goretex

No exposed skin except for my eyes.

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!


  1. oh my god, I have no idea how you ran in this. I don't know if I should congratulate you or tell you you're crazy...probably both

    1. It's all about how you dress Meg. No congrats necessary. Yes, crazy stupid.

  2. That is crazy cold! We don't get that here. My coldest run ever was -7°C (19.4°F). You can't even buy proper gear for cold weather here.

  3. Momma always said, "stupid is, stupid does"!

  4. I ran outside yesterday but no way for today. That is why the treadmill was invented! :)

  5. You got some stones to be out there so early today.

  6. man, that's a chilly run. Sounds like you did it right.

  7. A little colder than I've run in, the coldest was a race I did a couple of years ago (Rhodes Marathon), it was about 20 and we had 8km of mostly knee deep snow the run in. The year before there had been no snow but it was about 5... They said it was cold!!!
