    Haha, I head to the gym when it gets below 20. I'll use my bottom and baselayers from skiing to keep me warm. I just love being outside in all weather.

    I find it harder to deal with heat than with cold. After all, you can layer up in cold weather, but in hot weather at some point you run out of things to remove (legally, at least at first).

    +1 even walking 3 miles in 70 degrees + makes me a sweat a lot.

    I used to run outside from my local Y, an 8 mile loop. One day the flurries were flying. The only thing I was wearing on the bottom were a pair of Nike running shorts, nylon with a built in liner. When I got back to the Y I felt like I had to piss, but couldn't. I was fearful I had frostbite on the fifth appendage. Girlfriends are never around when you need them. She likes popsicles. I was never happier to hit the steam room after a workout. Luckily I didn't have to switch my membership to the YWCA.

    I haven't run in years, I don't think my knees could handle it. I never cared for running in the cold. I'd rather run in high heat. I used to run around the track above the basketball courts at the Y in the Winter. No one uses it anymore, they all run on treadmills. It is probably easier on your joints. The track is made of cork, I believe, not nearly as cushy as a treadmill though.

    Gotta be between a walk & jog for me. Found out early on that the hips can't take a marathon on pavement.
    If one were to keep a daily log on me....I'd be missing many, many days...but not account of the temps, moreso from the ice/snow-laden trails(City Forest...2mi away). 200yd section of main sidestreet, just off the yard, is wide(even with snowbanks) with gradual incline in middle and is good in early AM. Gotta find the answer to that middleground between XC and slightly wider ski for flatland & rolling lands/woods moving towards true descents.
