The first few miles of my run were through snowflakes dancing slowly and gently towards the ground. Kids, who were no doubt happy that it was a Friday and that their Christmas break is in one week, were out having snowball fights, making snowmen, and sledding down hills. Winter Wonderland for sure.
Soon, the town was behind me and the cloudy skies parted allowing the sun to shine. The back roads weren't all that slushy. I thought it'd be worse given yesterday evening's storm. Still opted to keep the speed down and roll with the hills at an easy pace.
Looking forward to a long run tomorrow. Big storm is expected on Sunday. XC skis may see some use that day, before the Patriots game of course.
Ran 7.2 miles @ 7:55/mile pace.
