DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Harsh cold weather isn't stopping some people from doing what they have to do.

"Once you get going, the first couple of rounds are really cold," said Nate Goslin about running outdoors.

Weather in the single digits, not a factor for Goslin who's running 7 miles in relatively light clothing.  "It's more annoying wearing heavy clothes, it would take me longer and I would have to stay out here longer if I was wearing a coat," he said.

But a sign of the biting cold -- small icicles on Nate's face.

Throughout Dubuque those braving the outdoors, clenching for some kind of warmth. 

Others enjoyed their "Sunday Funday," like out-of-towners at the Dubuque River walk. 

"We decided to come outside for family pictures because the view is so beautiful right now."

Beautiful, even with the Mississippi River frozen, but it doesn't seem to bother the Turner family.  "It's nice and sunny out, and it's not snowing...the sun makes it a little warmer."

But barren hills at the Bunker Hill Golf Course.  Usually there are groups of kids enjoying the outdoors, sledding.

However, with winds chills below zero...you can't blame people for staying in.
