I went for a run yesterday, I couldn't feel my feet for the first 10 mins. I turned around to go back home then the wind was at my back and my toes came back to life so I kept running. One women at the bus stop asked me if I was alright... guess she's not an adept of winter sports lol

So 2 miles in 25 mins, -34°C/-29F. Good enough in those conditions.....
