Tied a Temperature Record

High today: -10
Low today: -41
The days are beginning to warm and my chance for 40 below biking is becoming more unlikely for this winter. I thought I had it, but I'm currently staying up in the hills and it was only about 25 below up here when I went out today. The great news though, is that I think I have finally figured out how to keep my feet toasty when winter biking. It had become a serious problem for me and the last thing I want is to lose my toes and never be able to bike or run or ski again. I got some extremely awesome advice from a man who is a pro in endurance winter biking, so I am finally comfortable and can focus on just putting the miles in. Crappy that it was a setback and recurring issue but I am hoping that this will be it and I'll be set for as long as I continue to enjoy the sport!
Here is a picture this morning looking down on Fairbanks... smoke stacks are a daily sight in the valley. Steep inversion of >20 degrees from the valley to the hills.
