At least I didn't fall....

I've always wondered what it's like running on snow/ice.   Now I know.   Last night I got home and really felt like going for a run, so after dinner I bundled up and went out for a nice, easy 3 miler.   Mostly it was nice and easy because I was running on packed snow and ice the whole way.   Even without any Yak Trax.  I ran a little cautiously because I didn't want to fall and break an elbow or something.   

My feet seriously did not touch the street the entire way.  It was exhilerating to be out running in the cold night air, and when I got home I traded my running shoes for snow boots and shoveled the driveway.

glad you didn't fall. are your legs more sore today as a result of running on the ice and being more cautious?
