4.2 miles in the snow this afternoon. Lots of chunks of ice in my beard by the end.
I ran at a pretty decent pace, considering I wore heavier gear. New England is tough because I don't want to slip, but it's rarely enough actual ice on the ground through a whole route that it makes sense to wear spikes. I still wore the spike boots, as they're also rubberized so they keep my feet dry among the puddles on my route.
It's tough because I see people out in shorts and sneakers even in that weather, and I have to remind myself that we all have different goals. For all I know those guys are out for a quick mile or two, and I'm trying to stay out for a bit at an easy effort. My goal is always further distance, and I don't much care about speed.
Should be another few inches of snow on the ground tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to getting back out into it.
