This is what Christie said to me while we were running down the middle of a snow covered street Saturday morning. It literally felt like we were in a Nike ad with the caption “Running doesn’t get snow days.”
We knew there was a chance of snow but when I woke up it was still clear. No snowflakes whatsoever.
But between the time I left my house and the time I got to Christie’s at 7:00, this is what happened:
Seriously. Unfortunately this caused Kimi to not be able to meet up with us (she lives out in the boondocks – still trying to convince her to move her cute little ass closer to us – no luck so far ), but since I was already there Christie and I decided to put our big girl panties on and get it over with.
The beginning of the run was rough. It was dark, slippery, and tough to get our footing. Stupid snow. It was snowing pretty heavily and hard to see sometimes. But once the sun came up, and were on roads where we could run right down the center of the street, we were able to pick up our pace a little. The 6 miles flew by and it actually ended up being a lot of fun running in the snow!
- Mile 1 = 9:50
- Mile 2 = 9:34
- Mile 3 = 9:39
- Mile 4 = 9:35
- Mile 5 = 9:27
- Mile 6 = 9:20
- Last .09 = 8:15
Hellooooo, negative splits. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen you……. And a 9:33/mile average pace – been awhile since I’ve seen you, too! Not too bad with running in that weather. Not.too.bad.
And because we’re big nerds, we all sent virtual high fives when we were finished.
I really meant it when I said we were big nerds. But we’re fun big nerds. And I kinda love it.
And would you know that after I got home and showered, the snow had stopped and the sun even ended coming out later in the day?! Seriously. No joke. Cleveland weather is ridiculous.
How was the weather by you this weekend?
