What’s up, snow day! (And what do we have to do to get one of these on a Monday?)
Thanks to a particularly busy week, I had big plans to run 3 miles today and 6 tomorrow, and I was hoping to knock out the 3 at the informal run after my NTP orientation this morning. But by the time I got from my house to Foggy Bottom, we went from no snow on the ground whatsoever to treacherous roads (25 minutes–I had to slow down!), so they scratched the run.
But all that talk of training and being already dressed in cold-weather running clothes had me itching to go out anyway. And after an absolutely miserable 3-mile run on the treadmill last night, I was ready to brave the elements.
So I suited up:
And headed out to return my overdue library book and pick up a prescription at CVS. (It helped that Pacers was giving out free socks to the first 10 people to post Facebook pictures of themselves running in the snow today.)
It wasn’t that bad–I ran down the middle of the street on the way out, and I found a lot of shoveled sidewalks on the way back in. And one woman yelled out to me, “Yeah, girl. Get it!” which kind of made my day.
