Didn't realise how cold it was yesterday til I got outside in a pair of shorts and a sleeveless top! Still, you warm up in seconds (well minutes).

This morning I was more prepared (didn't wear shorts!) but I could literally feel my lips going blue.

Chris D is right "i hate running in wind or rain!"

I had the most delightful run in powdery snow last weekend. Cycling to work in the dark through the slush and rain on the monday was less good. When I lived in Canada I invested in serious thermal underwear to protect those delicate parts! They even had special thermal running underwear - great stuff.

Just read through this whole thread, quite a reminder of what we got coming up soon.

I recently ran a half marathon and the heavy rain halfway through meant I got seriously cold - especially around my hips. I was worried my muscles would seize up, but managed to make it through. Layers etc didn't make any difference, not once the ice-cold rain soaked everything!

LadyBee I'm with ya...

I love running in this cold weather.  Not so sure about the impending snowfall if it's as bad as last year, that could prove interesting! ;o)

I also love running in the cold, especially when its crisp and clear

Only problem is now...... it is snowy/icy! Doubt i'll be getting a PB if i'm on my bum!

I remember running whilst it was snowing ans very windy last year it was burning my face but still carried on and felt great after! got some funny looks but really felt liked i'd acheived something for the rest of the day. (probably was a bad idea on the windy roads in the brecon beacons tho!)

I actually race best when it is raining.  I mean proper raining and not that "Oohh...a light sprinking of refreshing" type of rain.  My 2 best half marathon times were done in pouring rain (and fine...a nice flat course...stop judging me).  Although weirdly I cant train in the rain.  Stupid head confuses me. 

I trained in the snow last year on freshly gritted roads at 2am as the paths were so bad.  I loved that.  Not another soul in sight....except police cars patrolling who kept stopping me.  But you cant really complain at that.  In their eyes, why would someone be running along the road at that time in the morning!  The fact I wouldnt have known if one of my ears had fallen off though...that would have been annoying going back to try and find it.

Give me the cold any day, love it!

I'd just like to say that I still like running in the cold just as much as I did when I started this thread!
