SNOW, SNOW & More SNOW!!!

I love snow. It's beautiful to watch and there are so many cool things to do. Ski, walk, run, sled, build snowmen, have snowball fights and so on.
As you see below you can also try to find your car under a tree (both our cars were lucky enough to participate in this winter festivity with little damage). I have officially had enough snow for the year. Despite all of its fun and beauty we have had so much that I have now been forced to run anywhere I can find safe pavement. The snow is so deep that running on the trail is impossible.
Yesterday I ran with David and Tony, about 17 miles of nail biting road running with no shoulders, down trees and power lines and drivers who could care less if you are on the road. I even went to the gym to finish off my running on a treadmill as I could not take the risk of running on the narrow roads any more. Today we ran 18 miles at Rockland Lake State Park. A nice scenic venue, paved, plowed and car free but a short 3 mile loop can become boring.

I can't wait for the snow to melt so we can hit the trails again!!! Peace
