Ran in negative windchill today- bundled up, so actually worked up a sweat.  The toes got numb, but otherwise a fairly comfortable run- 6 miles total.

Ran the Goshen Turkey Trot- it was 23 degrees w/"Real Feel" of 2 degrees.  Ran it steady and was satisfied w/the result.  My 2 oldest placed for their age division- 45:30 (1st) and 48:35 (2nd).  We came home w/ribbons, a gift certificate, and 3 pies.  Overall, great day!  Happy Thanksgiving to the rest of you bloggers!
