like the rest of the east coast we got snow today.
we got a lot of snow today.
at 9:20 am there was about 6 inches on the ground. every forecast predicted more snow and more wind so I tried to get out there early. well, early for a Saturday. well, early for a Saturday when I'm not Ironman training.
I strapped on my yak trax and heaaded out [James not remotely surprised]. The whole city was covered in a blanket of the fluffy white stuff. I hate the day after a snowstorm.. when the snow is dirty and gross ... but the day it's falling is lovely.
about a mile into the run I heard someone say to his friend "don't tell me that girl is running in this ! she's going to break her leg!" no worries, dude, I've got my yak trax.
Some of the snow was completly untouched and that was tough to run through -- like running in sand. Cold, wet, sand. I had to really pick my feet up. Great workout ! I went about 2 minutes/ mile slower than my normal pace, but the four miles I did in the snow was tougher than a normal 8-mile run.
