Christi said...

I can't believe that you are training in those conditions. You are awesome! I will not complain anymore when I jump into my covered pool at the college!

Laura said...

You are one brave lady! I was just complaining yesterday that it was too cold here to go snowboarding and my boyfriend was like, "uh, isn't that the point?" I can't even imagine swimming though! Way to go!

Laurie said...

You are so amazing! Way to get year round use of your pool. How do you keep your face and hands from freezing off?! Again, I am amazed!

Rose said...

You are NUTS! Bravo.

O-M-G. And who ever said Californians weren't tough. I'm frigging impressed.

Ron said...

I am officially done complaining about the cold in Vegas. I also am going to stop complaining about running in the cold and be glad I am not swimming in the cold. WELL DONE.

Alma said...

Nice job! I thought Cali was supposed to be warm? Is this normal?

gotta love it

Katie V. said...

I must admit I was like "um, that's not cold". And then I realized you were SWIMMING in that weather. Well a major props to you!

Jason said...

It's offical. The water at the pool at the gym INDOORS is a perfect temperature. No more complaining from me for sure.

Now that is hardcore!

ajh said...

I think I am a hardcore runner but I could NOT do it in the pool!

Laura said...

I was outside this morning and it was cold! You're a trooper!

Jon said...

you FREAKING ROCK!!!!!

I was like, why are you bundled up that much for a run? It isn't THAT cold! I didn't get the first pool image until I saw that your "hat" was not a hat, but rather a neoprene cap and you were wearing a wetsuit.

You get the bad@$$ award of the day!

Amanda@runninghood said...

I don't know what I find more crazy; the fact that you're pool is open this time of year (mine's been closed with snow on the cover for a couple of months now), or that you actually get in it! Good for you!
