Old Man Winter

Today's workout was intended to be 4 miles slow. Well... I nailed that slow part. Pretty sure I went out at the peak of our snow storm. There might've been maybe 3 inches of snow on the ground, but unfortunately it was on top of super slick frozen-thawed-refrozen ice that made for some occasional slipping despite using Yak Trax. (maybe I'll write about those after a few more runs, but as of now, not too impressed.) 

Visibility was at a premium after turning back north. So I had to look down and follow my footsteps back. The only problem with that is that the snow was coming down so hard, my footsteps were covered up! Thus, lots of stumbling back. If not for my grabbing my visor at the last second and throwing it over my winter hat, the run would've been a bit crazy. 

The bridge facing north crossing over Genesee River heading towards UorR. Luckily (or unluckily), the wind was blowing at my back here.

After just about two miles with the wind at my back and two miles in my face... I had to stop and capture the moment...
