8 Miles in 8 Degrees

12 Feb

This weekend, I ran in the coldest weather I had ever braved.

It was 6 degrees when we began our 8 mile run at 8am, and 8 when we finished. The windchill was well below zero, but the sun was shining bright.

Diana, Stacy and I had decided it would be fun to wear PJ pants on this insanely chilly run. The PJ pants were also a great idea because they were fleece and were easy to layer over tights.

Oh you know, just ready to rob a bank!

This run was NOT Miles with Style. We looked like fools, and didn’t match at all.

Diana was wearing fleece pants with turtles on them, while I was spreading christmas cheer with mine. Our friend Emily who took the picture had the best PJ pants…complete with robots! Stacy looked the best, donning a pair of navy blue pretties.

I always try to look my best when I run, however in 8 degrees it is semi-impossible to look fashionable. The number one goal of this run was to avoid hypothermia, and get in our 8 miles.

We ended up having a great run, and were so proud of ourselves for making it through. We were also quite proud of the dedication we have to this sport.

Ran in my huge glasses, and they really helped to protect my face!

I hope you all had an awesome weekend as well, and avoided the 8 degree weather!

Wishing you an awesome week ahead!

XO,

Ali

    Love this! So smart and fun to wear fleecy PJs over your tights. Reminds me of my own 8 miles in 8 degrees post about a month ago (although I was not wearing pjs, sadly): http://www.livebreathehuzzah.com/2012/01/16/how-to-run-hills/

    Brave ladies!! I waited until later and only got a very fast 3 in. (thought that would make it better since I wasn’t getting in my 9 like I thought!). I did run 6 on Sunday. My husband thought that I was crazy! Wait until I tell him about you three! Great dedication!
