Left the house this AM for a Nice 13 mile Long run. Just a few minutes out the door and I was insulted with a light sprinkle of freezing rain, I stopped and put on my garbage bag rain wear and continued. By the time I got to the Porter Rockwell Trail it was sprinkling harder mixed with a little bit of snow, I kept on going. Now I'm out 4 miles and it's decided to really start raining and snowing, much harder. I'm on my way back and by the time I get to the Draper Park and the PRT Trail head ( about 3 miles) it has already dropped 3" of snow on me and my gloves are soaked and my fingers are very cold. This all remindes me of running Boston 2018 except the weather conditions today were much better than at Boston. I took a quick stop at the park bathroom and dried out one pair of gloves on the heated hand dryer, geared myself back up and ran the last mile home in 4" of snow on the ground and a blizzard going off all around me! When I got home I decided I'd pick up the remaining 5 mi at another time, I was done for the day!
