Yesterday’s run was snowed out by an intense lake effect storm that dropped nearly a foot of snow along with fierce winds and whiteouts. Already tired in the afternoon, I saw the conditions outside and all the alarming warnings on TV, and crawled back under the covers to fight another day.
Conditions improved somewhat today. No snow, but the temps were still in single digits along with sub zero windchills, allowed for a run. Put on several layers, including my trusty decades old Gore Tex jacket, went out to brave the cold, and got in a delightful 8 mile run on nicely packed snow covered roads. Even got hot and sweaty by the end of the run. Winter has unofficially arrived with a vengeance here in Buffalo. Time to meet the challenge.
