NOT a fan of snow!

Ohio, you’ve been cruel to me. But a seven-miler helped ease the pain, even if it was in YakTrax.

Literally, the last thing I grabbed when I walked out the door for Ohio was my YakTrax. Good move!

  6. I am amazed you are up to running 7 miles again already so soon after your return to running! Maybe you can share some tips. I wasn’t sure if it’s X-Training that has helped you out or just you have great endurance in general.

    Yeah the west side is rainy here and the east side is snow.

  12. Ohio is preparing you for something much bigger!

  13. Darn it I’m a little jealous as we don’t have a single flake of snow on the ground. So deprived….but winter is young…

  14. I was a little worried after “the most snow ever” prediction for Chicago, but like Marcia said…winter is young. I’m sure we’ll get a chance to run in the snow:)

  21. Nice work on the 7 miler! I need to buy myself some of those yaxtrax and hope that I never have to use them:)

  22. I am SO thankful we do not have snow in Columbus!

    Happy New Year (and belated Christmas) to you and yours! I hope you are enjoying the holidays. :)

  23. Do the yaxtrax work? I’ve heard mixed reviews. I’ve thought about picking up a pair, but never have. I’m sure I’ll need them before long here in KC.

  24. I don’t have a pair of yak’s…. but after yesterday… I honestly should invest !

    Hope it treated you well and no slipping or sliding! Still stoked you are back at it w/ 7 freaking miles!

  26. I need to pick your brain about YakTrax. I really want to get some ASAP, but I’m nervous they’re going to make my foot strike weird, or feel “off” when I run. Good luck w/ that snow sister!

    Nice mileage on the trax. Believe me, I know how that feels.

  30. Wow! You are one tough mama! You wouldn’t find me out there in that snow. Well, maybe if I had some of those super cool Yak Trax. :)

  31. No gloves?? Brr! It was so cold this morning I went to the treadmill. It is super windy today and I can handle the cold just not the wind. I have never run in Yak traks – they might be useful if we ever get any snow here!
    J recently posted..Merry Christmas!My Profile

  32. Good for you! We have Yak Tracks but have never had to use them since it doesn’t snow much here. I never thought of using them to run (in the snow). I love that you look so happy in the photo :)

  37. I was happily surprised to arrive home to find no snow. I’m sure that won’t last for long, though, and my yak trax will see action again soon.

  39. Where there’s a will there’s a way. You northerned-climed people never cease to amaze me about the weather you’ll run in. I know I complain about the heat and humidity but I can’t really imagine running in weather where icicles build up on you.

  42. I’d love some snow, except of course for the fact that people in VA suck at driving in anything resembling snow. And we have no sidewalks LOL.
