Blizzard of 2017

The winter of 2017 has been somewhat mild.  It was unusually warm at the end of February and in the beginning of March, I was in shorts at times and observing the crocuses and daffodils prematurely sprouting.  March can be a funny month, such as the saying goes, March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb, or vice versa.

So we got our good first snow of the winter. It’s crazy because I’m not a fan of winter and really could careless about the snow as I get older, but I always find great excitement running in the snow. Anyways 6:30am the alarm goes off, I change and out the door I go wearing my Vibram Komodsports.  It’s snowing pretty good, wind is at 20 mph, with a temperature of 25 degrees F, and not a soul is out.  As I am heading home up ahead in the middle of the street I see someone with a tripod and camera. I stop and he introduces himself and asks if I want to talk about the weather. He worked for HAN Network. So random but a fun experience.

Here is the video.

Here is another video I did at the tail end of my run.

She's getting there just need to work on the turning. 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. At the Yankee game with the boys. Some DQ for my crew.
