It's currently snowing like a mother here in Minnesota. I've already shoveled the sidewalk and the steps twice today, and I'll be heading back out shortly. We've gotten 12.4 inches so far, and there is another 5+ inches on the way in the next 8 hours. Yuck. See my last Friday Funny to see how I feel about this.
Before it got TOO bad, I headed out for an 8 mile run this morning. I was going to run easy, and just put in some time. I strapped on the YakTrax for the first time this winter:
"YakTrax Pro" - with the strap over the foot
Looking down the street with about 5 inches of new snow
The sidewalk with 5-8 inches
Snow developing under my hat a mile into my run
The River Road Trail was plowed! Awesome!
More blowing snow - about 2 blocks of visibility
Getting a little frosty on the Franklin Bridge
I showed this photo of the Mississippi freezing up from during my run last weekend:
Welcome to MN. This is what December looks like.
Around mile 6
Around mile 7 - ICY!!!
There USED to be footprints from when I headed out, but they had completely filled in over 45:00
(yes, this is an actual photo of the sidewalk)
Back in the porch
Snowy shoes and YakTrax
Happy weekend everyone! Stop back Mon / Tues for a great stocking-stuffer giveaway!! Great for you or a "sporty" loved one!
