I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- it is 10 deg outside, only 5 above the all time record low, and I don't have my real cold gear out of storage, so I did 8 miles on the treadmill. Pretty much sums up my life right now.

yeah, it's cold.

one of the very first things that someone said to me when i moved to atlanta was "you can just get rid of that jacket right now, you won't need it here."

lies.

The humidity makes the cold feel worse, I know that much.

We keep hitting the mid-teens this week. Cold. Not as cold as Utah gets, obviously, but still cold. Plus, I've gotten a bit soft (yes, I said it). The biggest issue for me is that insulation in the houses here isn't made for sub-20 temps, so our kitchen pipes freeze if I don't leave the water running all night. I have to do that at least 5 nights a year. Many of my neighbors have the same pipe issue. It's annoying.
