We got our snow for the year! (And it's almost gone now.) I couldn't resist doing a few snow runs while I had the chance.
I thought I had researched this snow running thing out, and went right to action, preparing my Brooks Launch shoes with some good, old-fashioned, protection.
snow running experts in Minnesota, this is not the type of snow for "winterizing your shoes".
Yes. I still have much to learn with running.
I am 95% sure this will not be the weather I will have to deal with on race day in Eugene. As much as I like a once-a-year snow run, I am glad not to have to train or race in it often!
We headed up the mountains behind our house for a little cross-training fun later.

Do you run in the snow, or would you rather be indoors? I enjoyed day one, and even day two, but today it was rain mixed with snow...not sure I liked that!
Which way is my fuel belt supposed to be worn? I posted these photos on facebook and a friend commented that she wears hers the other way! I understand being able to reach the zipper pouch, but the (two) water bottles seem more comfortable in the back. Upon some Internet searches, I can't find photos of anyone actually wearing the belts! It honestly wouldn't surprise me if I was wearing it backwards.
