We were supposed to do the Feaster Five run on Thanksgiving day, but the temperature turned out to be in the teens (in degrees Fahrenheit), and with the wind it felt like -3 degrees F. We ended up staying indoors, not even daring to try out the shortened course that the organizers had set up because of the weather.
But one can stay indoors for only so long. We also had to burn off the calories that were consumed during the Thanksgiving meal. So, we were out the next day. The temperature had risen to a balmy 20 degrees, still well below the freezing temperature. We went to the Weir Hill Reservation.Some of us ran, while the others walked. We did two loops, each slightly less than two and half miles, around the park.We survived!
