Running in a Winter Wonderland

I woke up this morning to find a steady fall of snow coming down, and I went for a run in it. It was great! It didn’t feel that cold out, I think mostly because it wasn’t windy, and it was a beautiful scene to run through. The snow was a little problematic though, for two reasons. The first is that it got in my eyes whenever I looked up while running. The second is that dry snow, as many of you surely know, slips and grinds a bit under your feet, similar to what happens in sand.  Despite my efforts to tread appropriately, it made my calves a bit sore as they had to compensate.  Nonetheless, a decent run, 2 miles at about nine minutes per mile.

Looky! Snow!
