The Midwest is locked in the throes of an arctic freeze so I though this might be a good time to resurrect the More Miles Than Degrees Club, an elite club for those winter runners crazy enough to venture out into winter's fury.<br><br>
The entry requirements are simple: If you run more miles than the number of degrees Fahrenheit showing on the thermometer, you are in. Wind chill does not count, but it does make for good bragging rights.<br><br>
I did and easy 6.25 miles this morning at 3 degrees. The wind was an impressive 30mph which made for a -21F wind chill. I did see one other veteran (read crazy) runner out, but not another soul was in sight.<br><br>
Anyone else?<br><br>

Got you beat, Tom. I did 14.25 miles at -10... there was wind, but don't know what the windchill was.<br>
Saturday I ran 8.25 miles of hills at -8...<br>
Last week I did 13.2 miles at -20.... No wind to speak of, just freakin' cold.

No fair! You are from Alaska. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
It rarely gets that cold around here but I did have one run at -10 a few years back.<br><br>

Hmmm... I did zero outside miles today, but since the temp was -4 I guess I ran more miles than degrees -- right? <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

This is not a good thread for people who live in California..... It was 58 out there this morning, and there was no way I was runner a 59 miler.

Sorry if the MMTD club isn't PC, but we Mid-westerners need something to get us through the winter. Maybe you can start an "I ran through an earthquake" club and exclude us (even though we had biggest one on record). <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">
