Kind of funny. I was just thinking of today's run, probably with a temp just above zero and a wind chill well into the double digits below zero, when I saw someone elsewhere complaining that they were “forced” to the treadmill by wind chills around zero. Tomorrow, I'll be out there again with wind chills in the -30 to -40 range and I know I won't be the only runner in Wisconsin (or the upper Midwest as a whole) finding a way. The difference in perspectives can sometimes be a fascinating thing.

Note to Sue, not saying one way or other makes you a “real runner”. Just an interesting observation on what some consider impossible and others don't even give serious consideration to, though I have a feeling you don't spend much time thinking that it's impossible to run in certain conditions or saying the weather “forced” you to the 'mill.
