I wanted to let you know, in case you were lying awake at night wondering if I was still running on the icy trail near my house, that I am indeed still running on ice. I could have my own TV show . . . ICE
Despite falling and seriously injuring my ego, I have continued to brave the winter elements.
Yea, though I run through the valley of the shadow of ice, I will fear no falls. Thy tread and thy YAK TRAX they comfort me.
When I blogged about my accident, I mused that I would not be able to tolerate stopping and putting on YAK TRAX just to run the short distance between my development and our local high school. Well, I lied. I tried. It’s not so bad. It actually works very well. And carrying the YAK TRAX (which are technically DueNorth ice cleats but I like the sound of YAK TRAX so much better) is no worse than carrying a water bottle on a hot humid day.
The time I spend to stop and put the things on and then take them off again is well worth not having to be bruised and picking myself up off the ice.
I am still really looking forward to spring, though.
As is this person . . .
Thank goodness it was the perfect texture for running!
And I’m glad there was no video of me!
That I know of.
