Holy crap is it ever cold! I don’t know about you my fellow Canadians runners, but I am taking it inside on the treadmill until spring I think.  But for those of you who can’t stand the treadmill and are ready to brave the cold, I found a bunch of links that might be helpful.

    Hey thanks for sharing my post!

      Absolutely! I have NO experience in this area since I’m a wimp and treadmill it up. I’m hoping your wise words will help any reads who want to get out there! 🙂

    Thanks for sharing, Rachel! Hopefully we can inspire you to get out there and brave the cold! You’re more of a badass than you give yourself credit for 😉

      Aw thanks Ashley! But when it comes to running in the cold…I’m a wimp! I hate the burning lungs. 😛

    HAHA, thanks for the share, Rachel. I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to extreme cold weather running so I find I use a balance of indoor and outdoor training. 🙂

      That’s a good way to do it!

    My tip is to run inside, haha!!! It hardly gets below freezing here but this is the first time in YEARS it’s been freezing for a month straight.

      I remember living in Seattle snow would only happen maybe once a year and last for a day! But that wet cold is still pretty brutal!
