Day 1,456: Running in snow

RICHMOND, Va. -- It started to snow here on Christmas Day (yesterday) and by nightfall there was a good amount on the ground.

This morning when we woke up it was beautiful out, a nice snow-filled scene. I thought it would be unpleasant to run in it but it turned out to be wonderful.

The streets were covered in nice and fluffy snow and we ran in tire tracks or sometimes, when cars drove by, in fresh powder.

About halfway through my fiancee's 1.91-mile loop we saw two or three different tracks from running shoes.

A great experience all around.

Time: 11:47 a.m.
Temp: 27 degrees, snow flurries
Gear: Tech T (Nike dark grey, Atlanta Marathon promo), shorts, running pants, Outdoor Research hat, gloves, Nike Climafit windbreaker, Nike Air Pegasus+ 26/D.
