On our first weekly team call last Wednesday I polled the team for some advice on running in the snow, something that I had never done before. I figured who better to ask than a group of runners from Boston?!? Well, I got some good tips and I’m happy to say that I officially joined the club on Saturday.
We got about 4″ in Central PA on Friday night and I slipped on my new cleated, rubber soles the next morning and hit the road. Other than the noise of an occasional snowblower, I found that running in the snow was quite peaceful and beautiful. Since I wasn’t tempted to wear headphones for fear of getting hit by a snowplow, I did some good thinking over the course of my 9 miler. I’ll probably head to the treadmill for my shorter runs if it snows, but I’m happy to say that I’m ready to tackle my longer runs in the snow when I need to. Thanks for all of your advice!
