That’s what the weather people are saying about last night’s/today’s/tonight’s snowstorm.
Ooodles of snow (I think we’ve gotten a good 15 inches so far). Temps in the single digits and dropping to sub-zero tonight. Winds 25 – 35 mph. One near miss with a car colliding into my vehicle when I went to pick up daughter. Son’s basketball game cancelled (yeah!). MSP airport closed. Bus service suspended. MN DOT advising zero travel tonight.
Sounds like a good day to skip the outdoor run, huh?
Wrong! You knew I’d do it, didn’t you? Even though I didn’t need the miles, and technically needed a rest day, I just couldn’t resist the opportunity to say I ran in the Minnesota Blizzard of December 2010 (let’s hope this is the only one!). So I layered up, laced up and hit the road. And ran (if you can call an 11:08 pace running). Around the neighborhood, one loop (I’m sure the neighbors think I’m certifiable). And I was winded. It was hard, trudging through the unplowed snow. Little snow pellets were flying into my eyes and blinding me. It was only 3/4 of a mile, but it was something. 30 years from now when people talk about the blizzard of December 2010, I can say it didn’t stop me from running! Yipee!
