By race-time, it had warmed up to a whopping ZERO degrees, with a negative 20 degree wind chill. Although it was brisk, I was well-equipped (or so I thought) with two pairs of gloves, hand-warmers, a neck-warmer, headband, hat, long-sleeved shirt, fleece shirt, windbreaker and a puffy vest. Yikes! Oh and can't forget my snazzy Valentine's day socks!

But I had a blast running with one of my work friends, and we averaged about a 9-minute mile... not bad for not being able to feel our legs! Although it did feel like my nose was running faster than I was at some points! We finished hand-in-hand - just proud to have toughed it out on such a brutally cold day.

Proud to say that I survived my coldest race ever... and had a blast doing it! Happy Valentine's Day :-)
What was your coldest race? Any tips or tricks?
