Attention CA runners: Quit Bitching About “Cold”

running weather comic

I was reading through blogs last night and ran across a post from a runner in San Diego – complaining about how hard it was to get up at 5:45 a.m. to run because it’s so cold and dark.  I know cold is relative.  But seriously???  If you live in San Diego you should not be allowed to bitch about running outdoors and it being cold.  You have clear footing.  And “cold” is probably 40 degrees.  So just stop.

On Monday we are supposed to have HIGH of -3, with -30 windchills.  And as long as the footing is clear, you will find me out on the streets.*  Without bitching.  Because it’s better than the treadmill.  And it’s running.

* I will admit that -3 is too cold for the 300m intervals that I had scheduled, so my miles will be slow and easy.

  1. Not to rub it in, Cindi, but my run this afternoon here in beautiful Colorado was in the mid 50’s. It was perfect to be out and running. I can relate to the cold, though. Lived in northern Michigan while I was in high school, so I know cold! Bundle up and stay warm and safe!

    Amen. Last week I layered up and ran 9 miles in 10 degrees at 1 pm. This week I ran 10 miles in 55 degrees. all in Colorado – one week apart. yup it was cold last week, now it’s not.
