I took a snow day today. We got almost 15” of snow over night and throughout the day with the possibility of an inch or to tonight. I spent the day pushing snow at home and with my closest neighbors. I will count today as a rest day and pick up today’s scheduled training run tomorrow.

4 tempo miles, 25*, 12 mph wind, 50% humidity. I’m so ready for spring weather. We’re expecting another 3 ft of snow between Wed and Sun. That could mean 6 to 12 inches in the foothills around me!

started out to do a 20 miler but cut it short when it started snowing on me. I wasn’t ready for snow, so since I was close to home base I terminated the winter wonderland run for a warm recliner and watched the last half of the Daytona 500....

oh what a wonderful day. I got up late and got out on the road to make my scheduled mileage. I got it but it was laborious. 35*, 50% humidity, up to 18 mph winds, the good part is that the sun was out and there were very few clouds around. Got it done and looking forward to next weeks challenges...
