I'm way too soft now to put what's too cold for me now. I'd get laughed off Fetch :-P

It's not that cold here just now. +2 deg C, but there's a 32mph wind + stronger gusts. Makes for interesting running!

I've been out running in negative double figures through a few winters and I've no issues while I'm out. I used to get really painful fingers once I was back in and they began to heat up again though.

It's alright as long as the wind is behind you Daviec because as we well know that always happens!!! ;-)
I'd never avoid running outdoors because it's too cold. That said, I live in the Northeast, so don't have a lot of choice!

Friday night, It was blowin a blizzard n dark with the occasional flash of lightning,as I squatted down in my shorts n popped out a cowpat in a field behind a snowcovered hay bale, midway through an 8.5 miler, 200 yards from the local 'hospital for people with mental health issues', as I pondered this very question....

Snowballs by the way are marvellous at indicating when you no longer need to wipe your bahookie.
Much better than grass or moss or doc leaves.

Agreed. Snow has definite advantages in that respect. As someone who can barely get 5k without having to stop and drop, I know the feeling.
