I didn’t really want it to snow.
As a news reporter, I don’t get snow days, and I don’t like driving in the snow.
And I could do with less cold weather, too — on a day not too long ago, my car was iced over and I had to use a key to draw a line at the edge of the car door to help get the door unfrozen.
But since it did snow — and a good amount in Salisbury — I decided to make the most of it, and I did enjoy my snow run. Although I ran at least two other times when there was snow on the ground this season (one wasn’t in Salisbury), this one was different.
The best part was getting to the road before the plows. There were a handful of cars out, but not many, so I was able to run at times in nearly the middle of the road. (Of course, I moved over for cars.) I knew I’d left a little bit late for the run — at about 8:10 a.m. or so — so that was on my mind, but I was still able to enjoy looking at the snow-covered scenery and the very quiet feeling that came with there just not being many people out yet.
Although I only ran two miles, it still felt like a solid workout. I know I’ve compared it this way before, but it really does feel like running in the sand. It definitely slowed down my pace.
Well, that was a nice run. But I’m ready for the warmer weather. Thirty-one days until spring!
