Wow, today turned out to be a great day to run outside! At first I certainly didn't think it would be, since it was snowing hard, only 32 degrees, and I could see the wind sock at the airport standing straight out. But I knew I had to get out and give it a try. I found that if I just pulled my neck gaiter up over my face when running into the wind, it wasn't bad at all. I was kind of bundled up in rain gear, hat, and gloves - no running shorts today! But I warmed up quickly, and because it was right at freezing, the snow on the gravel road where I was running, had melted off. It wasn't even slippery even though it was snowing the whole time. I have come to the conclusion that it is only in extreme conditions that it is not possible to run outdoors. I do stay indoors during blizzards though!
