1 Race Down, 9 to Go

I braved the elements this morning for a run in Central Park ( By "elements" I mean weather so cold, my thoughts were frozen inside my brain. 'Twas six degrees with the wind chill. Emperor penguins would have suffered.

I wore six layers on my torso, one for each degree, and shorts beneath my sweatpants. It was so unbearable that I didn't remove any layer for the entire run.

My sister joined me for the race, though I didn't meet up with her until afterwards. She ran an impressive 9:17 Per mile, I did 9:05, taking it easy because my joints were frostbitten.

Good run, hope the rest this year are slightly warmer.

I have Israeli blood in my veins, not Russky. :-)
