Why did the Canadian Geese Cross the Road?
Who knows Eh :)
Who knows Eh :)
The Snowy run was FANTASTIC... AC (Alex the Canadian) and I had not run together in ages. He said he would sneak me into the gym but I did not pack indoor gear, so outside it was.. The paths near the office were clear, I thought about doing repeat laps around the lake at .75 per lap.. But AC wanted to venture out. ADVENTURE TIME!!
Once we hit the white stuff I quickly realized that the untouched snow had the best traction and was less wet. I wore my new Pearl Izumi shoes (review coming soon) and smart wool socks... GOOD CHOICE!! My feet were totally warm and dry. It is HARD running in snow, sorta felt like sand in some ways. I had to really focus on lifting my feet, no shuffling along. AC and I chatted, dodging puddles and enjoying the crisp air. We were slow, but it felt tough. My backside was FREEZING, AC was done at 3.75 when I dropped him off I started the loop... BRRRRRR!! I cut my 7 miler short to 5 I was too cold... All in all a FUN adventure.. I feel really badly for all you Bloggy buddies who cant avoid the white stuff. UGH!!
My Weekend Long Run plans are a little TBD at this point. Muscle Man has plans with his bro in the morning on Saturday.. So I may end up solo on Saturday afternoon.
***Anyone up for a 20 mile running tour of Bonney Lake, WA??
