Yeah, I could have gotten through this snow but being snowed in was
so much more fun.
After we got shoveled out I went for one of three snowy/cold runs in Maine. I just dressed for it, put on the Yak Trax and loved it. There was so much snow! The banks were unreal. I ran by Nubble Light every day and took multiple pictures. I think it is a law that you can't pass it without taking a photo. I knew where there was an open hotel with clean bathrooms about half way so that was good.
It did not feel like -22 at all.
I was fascinated by all the snow and one run I took pics of a few of the summer places no one would be
visiting anytime soon.
One of many pics I took but this is the one NBC news wanted to use.
Signs also amused me - the ones you could still see.
There was one sunny day where the ocean was just stunning. I was also fascinated
by all the colors of the water and the ice in the ocean.
This is one of many big banks. Driving was tricky because you had to get out in the
road to see.
We did a little shopping and I had lobster rolls every night.
Then I came down with this rotten cold I have now and I was ready to come home.
I've had some good runs at home too although my knee has been bothering me. I went to the PT yesterday and I was rather encouraged by her assessment. I was very worried she was going to tell me not to run. My NYC half marathon is a month away! I am not running right now because I am in bed feeling less than stellar but I am hoping to be back at it tomorrow. There is supposed to be snow here over the next few days but I am going to try to do one speed work session on the TM and my long run outside. I do love snow and Maine was like it used to be with such huge amounts of it! I know they are sick of it but it certainly worked for me!
Hope you are all healthy and running and doing what you love.
