Snow/Ice Run

I went out for a 6 mile run at 5:15am this morning,  we got slammed  with about 16″ of snow yesterday, this was my first snow/ice run of the year.  The temp was 19 degrees, I wore my Vibram sprints without socks (I  have no room in my sprints to wear socks).   Five fingers are very slippery on ice and snow, the roads were 95% covered in both.   Running on this kind of surface is tricky, it’s a good test on your running form.

Running on dry snow is much better than hitting parts of the road that is wet and slushy, once I got my Vibrams wet it’s pretty much over in the comfort zone.  By mile 4 my toes were definitely freezing and some numbness was starting to settling in.   Overall it was a solid run, much better being outside than inside on a dreadmill.

Ran the Fairfield CT half marathon this morning. Came in with a time off 1:50:12.  This  was my 8th consecutive year running this race, and barefoot. My training was super light. Maybe 12-15 miles per week with no speed training, or fancy workouts, all runs were slow. I started lifting weights again, and noticed a big difference with running. The weight training is what pulled me through. The best snack/protein bar out there. Definitely no BS.

Street Art. Friday evening at the beach. My little sweetie is growing up.  We were stuck in traffic and I snapped a quick picture of her and it's crazy to notice the changes of your children at certain points.
