IT SNOWED LAST NIGHT!

...

Boo.

So today I hung out around my house and ate everything in the pantry while I waited for it to warm up and for some snow to melt.

I had some company while I waited.

Before I left, I got to witness the making of another dog. Levi and Miranda were brushing Maggie.. and you see that huge pile right there? Hair. Fantastic.

When I hit the road, it was a whooping 25 degrees outside with a fairly strong North wind. Remember, North winds are coooold. I’m pretty sure my face almost froze off.

The roads and sidewalks around town were really slick, sloshy, and snowy in places. Almost face planted it a few times… good thing I have catlike reflexes… not.

On the bright side, if my feet ever got hot and sweaty, there would be some kind of sloshy puddle nearby I could just run through and BAM… problem solved! Although I never wanted to do that. My feet were FROZEN. Keena had no problem with running through the snow though. She LOVES it.

Example…

Keena bounding through snow drifts as big as her.

We got home and Keena almost died.

See? She's dying.

See? Barely holding on.

The run really was a toughie. Just cold and bitter. Not so fun.

My outfit I ran in was fun though! Many colors!

Even color coordinated... hah. Not.

Nice new PRO Compression and soaking wet shoes!

If anybody ever needs to know what to wear, contact me. I obviously have an eye for some good fashion. Since most of my closet consists of running clothes… no shame.

I worked on and filled out my recommitment forms for Team in Training! Don’t forget, my Full Marathon is in San Diego on June 2nd! Rock n’ Roll baby!

My Half Marathon is a little less than 3 weeks away in Abilene, Kansas. I might pee my pants. I’m so excited!

Now I’m finally in some dry clothes, enjoying a some apple slices and peanut butter! SO GOOD.

Nom nom nom.

Nom nom nom.

I hope everyone got the chance to stay nice and dry today! From the sounds of it, quite a few places got hit with snow! YUCK.

No matter the conditions…

Run on.
