I'm sure it varies a little by person, but in general, that seems to be where running gets good. I'm very happy down to low 20's with the right clothes.
To my surprise, today was pretty much my normal pace. My hip’s been varying levels of NQR since I re-injured it last November, so I’ve not been hitting my normal miles. I’m crediting the 2:01:03 to cold weather
I LOVE running in sub-20 weather!! If it’s snowing, I’m running. If it’s sub-20, I’m running. It was snowing a teeny bit a few years ago, DC was shut down because SNOW, so I drove into the city to run along the mall and Rock Creek parkway in the snow.
I’m going to try that soup with vegetable broth.
