-13º with a -19º WC... I went to the gym. 8 on the treadmill. I don't have a membership so with all the resolution push they let me have a day pass.

Way to play the "I might be joining" card at the start of the new year. If those temps keep up you will need at least a 1 month membership. Stay warm my friend.

I believe a membership would be an EXCELLENT investment for you...!!!!

Or...Just move to Texas!

Dan, are you a frozen popsicle?

From Dan on Mon, Jan 08, 2018 at 18:40:12 from

IJR- I would love to live in Texas!

Rhett- Feels that way! its actually warmed up, but just in time for an ice storm. I, like you, have nothing on my calendar so it has fostered my lack of running. I know I need to get back at it. However it has been nice relaxing.

From I Just Run on Wed, Jan 10, 2018 at 21:30:55 from

Come on down ... There's a lot of open space here!

Hope all is well as we haven't seen a post in a few days.

From I Just Run on Fri, Jan 12, 2018 at 11:04:02 from

You must have frozen to death on this run! No more post. :-(

From Dan on Fri, Jan 12, 2018 at 23:31:51 from

Lol I'd love to come down! Sorry busy work week! I'll catch up soon and be back at it.
