I see you're in Ontario. Me too! A lot of people think I'm insane for trying to learn to run when the weather has been close to -20C with the windchill. I'm figuring that if I can motivate myself to do it now, surely when the weather is above freezing I'll be golden! It'll be nice not to have to figure out how many layers to go out in.

I am in the Toronto area and have to admit to being a wimp about running in the cold weather. I walk to the bus in it almost every week day, but I tend to run on the treadmill where it is nice and warm and dry.

Me too, just north of the city. If I *had* a treadmill I would certainly have run on it on Friday, but alas we don't have one. I'm just glad we haven't had a ton of snow so far this year. Not having to worry about snow all over the sidewalks makes it somewhat better.
