Skipped the Run

Since it was below zero when the boys got dropped off at school I decided to dig the snowshoes out. The nearby county park has a few miles of hilly trails so that was my destination. Once I got warmed up I was able to take some pictures, I need to get out when the sun isn't so intense to shot the snow.

I almost for got the Cliff Crunch bar that came in the mail, I'm sure it will be good eating. Too bad my first thought was what a waste of packaging material, I don't know how many they sent out as samples but that is a lot of paper. Maybe next time just send me a coupon via email ?

Winter Running

Got out for 5 miles today, my first snow run this season. My Brooks Mach 11s worked alright but figured I should prepare for worse conditions. A trip to the hardware store to get sheet metal screws and five minutes and I'm set. I use #6 x 3/8" screws and base the pattern off of the wear on the shoe. I could probably skip the heel screws now that I land mid to fore foot but I'll take the cheap insurance.

Windshield Frost

Figured I try shooting the ice on the windshield after work with my phone. Might get our first decent snow Friday night, guess I better wax the snowboards.
