    -9 Deg at start, -6 on finish. Turn around point I was good to go (@7 miles). By mile 8 my vision was blurred. At first I thought it was due to the eyelashicles. Mile 9 I realized something was wro... read more

      Hope you feel better. It dropped to more than 40 below here, so I bagged the new years eve run :(

      I hate nothing more than eyelash-cicles.

      My wife and I were just talking about how much we hated the 10 degree drop into the 20's today. Your "eyelashcycles" comment really make me feel like a lightweight. I will get outside tomorrow. Take care of yourself, Ted and thanks for the motivation.

      Good call - if the US ski team won't run races below -5, you know that it is a serious challenge to be out there in those temps.

    TM started overheating and would shut down every 5 minutes after mile 4. So I did the only thing an electronics tech knows to do. Dremeled a hole above the motor and installed a 120mm computer fan ... read more

      Great setup, Ted. I told a couple of friends about your plan to setup in the garage after I read your post yesterday. Everybody loves the idea (even though we are "lightweights" from Indiana)!

      I have a new appreciation for my treamill now that I figured out how to get Netflix on my phone and iPad! I also like it for intervals since I'm unlikely to ever go to the local track or know what to do there if I did! BTW....Running the Golden Years said an episode is on the way....could it be so??? Merry Christmas!

      You are younger than I am and your eyes can focus on a 10 in FP. The problem I had at the Y with such displays is that they were mounted low and caused me to drop my head. The TVs were mounted too high. i ended up plugging in some tunes and finding a sign on the wall at the right height and focusing there. Boring... Now, if you can adjust the tablet to the correct height, that would be awesome... I have been amazed how little things like this compromise my form... Best wishes with your new treadmill.

      Very wise decision. With the temp hovering at freezing, the ice has a thin film of water decreasing the coefficient of friction.

    Much better run today. Found a descent route which will allow me to extend the distance that I need. Pretty gnarly elevation gain/loss. Will be something to get used to I spose.

      Nice run Ted. Definitely harder to find a flat route out in Eagle River. It will be good training! I'm thinking of doing some runs up Baldy next summer from my folks' house (bottom of Skyline).

      It is up to you and I realize it must be time consuming. I have missed your podcasts. They were really good. Now that you have a new job and location there must be lots to talk about. Alaska, running in snow, wild animals, Oklahoma etc
