Well, the temperature is below freezing here in Austin and the wind chill is even lower. We are not used to this. We usually don’t have to wear socks, much less grab a winter coat.
A colleague told me that freezing concrete is hard on doggie paws, so Hollis agreed to only run one mile today during lunch.
Here is what I learned while running with my dog when the wind chill was 20 degrees:
1. I really do love Hollis.
2. Sweat is relative.
3. Tears freeze.
4. Mesh running shoes are real thin.
5. I can run a seven-minute mile (when I can’t feel my legs) (when I only run one mile total).
