A light snowfall at the beginning of the run turned to a pretty good moderate snowfall after a few miles. Fortunately, none of it was sticking and it added to the peaceful ambiance of the back roads I was running on. It ended about 16 miles into the run.
This route took advantage of some killer hills in my area. I'd post the elevation profile, but it looks pretty skewed and I'm questioning its accuracy. But basically there were three major, buttkicking hills with a whole slew of smaller climbs and drops in between. Great workout. Pleased with my heart rate given the effort with the elevation changes.
Ran 22.7 miles @ 8:35/mile pace.
