Snowed In!!!

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

This past weekend we experienced one of the biggest snow falls I have seen in my life time! By the time it stopped snowing Sundy morning we had 2 feet on the ground.  I’ve seen my fare share of big snows before but never this early in the year and it usually never snows this much at the beach.  I used to really believe in global warming but over the past few years I am strating to believe Mother Earth is a much stronger force than we humans give her credit for!!

My plan was to go to the gym and run on the treadmill but my car was trapped and the gym closed so I waited for the snow plow to clear the road and I headed out for my 2 hour run.

My advice for getting your long run done in sub freezing temps, snow covered roads, and howling winds…Run half the distance one way into the wind, turn around and you have no other choice but to keep going till you get home!
Happy Holidays!!!
