While my hubby is enjoying this view from his hotel, we have been getting continuous snowfall for the past 24 hours. I slept in a little this morning after a night out with some friends and when I finally opened the front door, I didn’t think I was going to make it to meet my group in time for our long run. There was a snow drift almost waist-high in the driveway and it was still snowing. I had to floor it to get my car out of the garage and through the snow (thank you, snow tires), but miraculously arrived on time.
I was surprised that almost everyone showed up. We set out and braved unplowed roads and snow pounding our faces. Every step took immense effort and my muscles were exhausted just trying to continue the forward motion.
Thankfully, the temperature was pleasant at around -5C (23F) so the run wasn’t completely miserable. For the time time in weeks, my water didn’t freeze!
After slipping and sliding around in the snow for almost two hours (I really need to try some YakTrax), I have muscles aching that I didn’t know existed.
Despite all the complaining, it was a pretty enjoyable run. I may not have said this a few hours ago, but I’m glad I went.

Unfortunately, I came home and had to contend with the driveway shoveling. Where’s my husband when I need him?!
