Weather advisories EVERY DAY? Sub zero temps, gusting winds, snow, sleet, sigh. I always run outdoors in the winter but I don’t remember the conditions being quite this miserable. The type of snow that we are getting is greasy and makes it feel like I am wearing banana peel shoes. It slowed me down so much that I had to cut my miles short this week to get to school on time. I also came down with some chest congestion and took a whole day off to nip it in the bud. For those of you checking my run times be aware that it is “real time” inclusive of dog wrangling, blowing my nose, shaking ice cubes out of my sleeves, peeing in the woods, giving directions to lost bears etc.
