Protest Correction

I claimed that I would not run in temperatures of 20 degrees or lower. What I meant was temperatures in the 20s or lower.

Thanks to tfh for pointing out my error, else you might have checked the weather near me, which as of this posting was 24 degrees, and thought, "Whelp, I guess ol' Viper's gonna go run tonight."


What I should have said was "29 degrees or lower" or more simply "below 30 degrees." And while I'm at it, I might as well amend my protest further and say that if the predicted high temperature is below freezing -- that's 32 degrees, for you nincompoops -- I'm not running.

So, in short. I will not be running tonight. I might run tomorrow. Only Goddard knows.

Look at that. In one post the lowest temperature that you'll run in went from 20, to 29, to 30, then finally to 32. By the end of tomorrow's post you'll have postponed all running until the temps get up to 50 or better.

" ... if the predicted high temperature is below freezing ... I'm not running"

This is still unclear. The freezing point of what? Nitrogen, e.g., freezes at -346.0°F. So that's a freezing point.

It rarely gets that cold - even in God-forsaken Akron, I'll bet.

So there should never be time when you don't run, if we assume you're talking about the freezing point of nitrogen - a reasonable enough assumption, since you don't specify.

You should learn to write more perspicuously to avoid this kind of confusion.

Your journalism degree is showing.

You'll take any excuse, won't you?

Your weather widget calls for 35F on Wednesday - I expect a run report tomorrow night.

Thanks for clearing that up. I was a little confused.

Ditto joyRuN's comment. Seriously, I love karma.

There's supposed to be a warm-up in the Midwest starting this afternoon. I'm hearing about temperatures in the *gasp* 40's!!!

Wimp. ;)

Your weather widget says 50. Sorta like here.

Run report, please.

Too bad GQH seemed to miss your "that's 32 degrees, for you nincompoops" note.

Its always the target demographic that skims right past such things, eh?
