I sent this to my running buddy, John Anthony.

We’ve had another snowstorm…this time a BIG one.

Then yesterday, we were closed again. I don’t own a treadmill or belong to a gym. What’s a runner to do??

I tried to keep busy and not think about it.

I did some laundry. I started packing for my Feb 26 trip to Florida. (Optimistically I packed shorts & a bathing suit.)

Then I went online.  Both Bruce Springsteen and Jimmy Buffet concert tix went on sale yesterday.  I love The Boss but Jimmy Buffet just reminds me of summer so I waited online for an hour and I GOT TICKETS!!!

I went on at 10am (when they opened for sale) and still only got open air seats (and they weren’t cheap!!)

Happy Valentine’s Day to me and my hubby (who really loves Jimmy Buffet.)

It was tough going in my neighborhood…slushy slushy.  My feet got very wet immediately and then numb from the cold.

The sun did come out and it warmed up.  I realized that I am not a fan of ice and slush.  Maybe I should have ran the day before during the snowstorm.

Anyway, it was a…

Glad I got some miles done so I could enjoy the rest of my day off… reading..knitting…Olympics on TV.

Happy Running!  Did you get snow yesterday? Did you run?
