Storm, Schmorm...

A few days ago I had planned on possibly taking a rest day today, primarily because of the storm, but quite simply I didn't feel like it and wanted to get out for a run.

Roads were actually in great shape. Plows were doing a good job at keeping up this morning, so just enough snow to make screw shoes perfect. Hardly anyone out driving, so it was very safe... I'd muse that it was safer than a normal day, in fact. Was able to get in a better than expected pace (true easy pace). Ran up the ridge on one of the back roads... felt good to get in some hills.

As for the weather, it was 15 degrees, snowing hard and windy. Felt comfortable, aside from the snow sticking to my eyelashes. I really enjoyed it though. Very fun run. Hope everyone is faring the storm okay and making the most of things.

Ran 6.6 miles @ 8:12/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 139/151
Snow-coated roads.
Very hilly.
15 degrees, snowing hard, windy.
