It's Not Worth It

Yes, I am an athlete, and yes, I am used to making sacrifices. I am willing to undergo what normal people would consider extreme pain in the pursuit of faster speed. I even enjoy pushing my body well beyond the point of uncomfortable.

And I tell myself that it's not that bad. Once I get going, it will feel great. That I just have to go for a couple miles, and then I'm done for the day.

But you know what? 13 F is just too cold for a tempo run.


  1. I went out my run today thinking it was 18 and I way over-dressed. It turned out to be like 34. I am starting to think I am whacked in the head for going out when I thought it was eighteen! :-)

  2. It's not so bad if you can work it to run with the wind to your back. You'll warm up mighty quick.

    The problem is having to turn back around into it when you're done. Then you cool down mighty quick.
