Today I experienced my first outdoor race in sub-zero temperatures. It was -12 at the start of the race with a windchill of -22. Needless to say, I learned a lot today.
The race in question was part of the Mountain Equipment Co-op (MEC) series of runs and was a beautiful 10km out and back (twice) course at the shore of Lake Ontario. Which was frozen, I might add. MEC is a members-only store which sells camping and outdoor equipment and run many different events as well as running clubs.
