The younger or less experienced runners are way off, believe me.  I've seen too many 16 y/o get on a treadmill at the pace they say they always run outside and the HRM is flashing just under 190 bpms.

I do believe you, though I am unsure that teenagers really use treadmills in high numbers nor that they necessarily should.  As indicated, even college runners in Minot, ND, trained outdoors through the winter.  The only time I did not run outdoors in college was during the rare wind/dust storm that carried a realistic threat of eye damage.  High wind is likely my least favorite weather condition in which to run, snow and cold seems like nothing by comparison.

true. I saw one of the boys a few days ago, running down the middle of the road….in shorts :o.  But school was cancelled for frigid conditions
