In an effort to preserve my sanity later in the day, I took our craziest dog (Green Bean) out for a run this morning to get some of his energy out. Living in Texas, it’s not everyday that I have to put sheet metal screws in the bottom of my shoes before I go out for a run, but given the ice storm that we just received, I needed all the traction help that I could get.
On the plus side of the run, I saw some high school kids trying to get their tongues stuck to a metal sign post.
Here’s to hoping that this storm doesn’t screw up my plans for a long run on Sunday! My weekly mileage thus far isn’t looking so hot.
Don’t let the picture fool you – there isn’t a single snowflake on the ground. It’s all ice pellets on top of a sheet of ice. Between the freezing rain and ice pellets, we’ve received somewhere between 1/2″ and 1″ worth of ice in the pat 20 hours or so.
