Winter Misery... already

In attempt to make the most of this nasty weather, and I mean NASTY (with -29 windchill) I am looking forward to taking part in RunningLaur's virtual race...





I am plugging away at my miles...23.16 more to go this month.... and this will be another fun reason for me to get out (or on the treadmill), even if it's just one mile!

I will admit, I am not a regular follower of RunningLaur, but I saw a link to this race via another blog and look forward to reading more from her.

Look back next week for a full "race report"!

So excited about the virtual race! I'll be FAR from winter's misery in the Caribbean at the time, but I'll be thinking about those of you freezing your buns off while I run at the beach. :)

Wow! That is really cold! Can't wait to hear your "race" report :-)

A virtual race sounds like a fun idea! That's WAY too cold, is it too soon to start asking for summer?

J said...

Aka Alice said...

That is just too cold for me! Stay warm.

Jess said...

Haha oh man what a fun idea for a race! Good luck with your chilly mile!

Jess said...

That weather is AWFUL! Just plain awful.

Of course, here in South FL, the heat index was 93 today, which isn't all that pleasant either.

I am curious how that Race Report will look...make a list of everything you listen to to spice it up!

I happened to find your blog today. I am also a Special Education teacher-- I teach K-1.
I agree, the cold weather is not much fun!

Borsch said...

Brrr... I think we are only -15 for windchill.

And I pieced the plan together from differnt BeginnerTriathlete plans and my own experience. I can print/scan and send it to you. :-)

Whenever I feel depressed about the winter weather in Ohio I know I can read about your weather and feel better :)

Badgergirl said...

The virtual race looks like fun, or at least will get me outdoors running in the snow. But I'm going to have to check the weather forecast. It was 5 degrees here today, I'm a wimp when it comes to cold.

X-Country2 said...

She has the best ideas. Good luck!

Diane Fit to the Finish said...

That is one cold temperature you have there. I'm so inspired by your dedication and level of fitness! Great job!

Shannon said...

Brrrr! I remember last Christmas, driving across ND, from Minneapolis to Bismarck, and marveling at how the temperature on the dash board (minus the wind chill!) dropped from 0 to -18 by the time we reached Bismarck! (We were driving because we couldn't get the second leg of our flight out of Minn. into the air!) Brrr!

Happy belated birthday! I am a bit behind on my blog reading :)

Tricia said...

Brrr...thats cold! Good luck with the virtual race!

Thanks for stopping in on the Giveaway!! It is not too cold in the SEattle area, THANKFULLY! Hubby and I are going to run a "Tour the LIghts" 5K tonight, so I will use 1 of those miles for the Winter Misery One Miler. Running laur is AWESOME, I love her virtual races.
