I went for a nice 10 mile run today- nice and slow, because of the snow and ice on the ground and the fact that with wind-chill it was about 10 degrees outside.
As a side note, I pondered the coincidence that I was running the number of degrees it felt like outside (or really half the actual temperature without wind-chill, 20 degrees), and that maybe I should try to do that again this winter; then I reconsidered- that would not be fun on a 40 degree day.
When I came back from my long run I glanced at my water bottle, and while the water inside had not frozen (I shook it periodically to prevent that), there was a ridge of ice along the hand strap that I managed to not see forming during the run.
Here’s a picture:
What’s impressive is that it was cold enough to freeze the water as it dripped out of the bottle. Which reminds me, I need a new bottle; this one leaks.
