Friday was a reading day before exams start next week the college where I teach, so I took the opportunity while my kids wee in school in the morning to get out for a run with my good buddy Jack. It was frigid out – 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit with the wind chill, and probably not the best day to shoot my first running videos, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. If nothing else, I hope it inspires you to get out and run through the winter! Here we go…
Runblogger Videocast #1 – Winter Running With Jack from Pete Larson on Vimeo.
The first Runblogger Runcast shows what it’s like to run on a frigid, windy day in the snowy winter in New Hampshire. I’ve compiled clips of me and my dog Jack as we run along one of our favorite routes, including a snow-covered section of trail along the Merrimack River. If you take away one thing from this video, let it be: Don’t let the cold stop you from running – it was 5-10 degrees F w/ windchill on this run. Courtesy of http://www.runblogger.com/.

Lots of credit here – Steve’s podcast has been there for me since I first started running over 2 years ago, and just as he helped me become a runner, he has now pushed me to add my voice to the Run Net Community (a very, scary thought!).
