great Snoosh & Smiles 6.1 mi 00:55 09:00 pace

Awesome run under the falling snow! Perfect pillowy footing of 3" of snoosh (snow + slush), this minimalists dream. Tons of water & sludge at the intersections, so I attempted to avoid getting soaked by leaping over the gutter at the curbs. I love doing this, it's my version of free-running. Did biff it once though when the snow at the other end of my leap completely gave way. I got a little bruise and tear in the tights at the knee as I slid down. Took it as God's way of keeping me humble, laughed out loud & kept on going. :) Highlight of the run was the moving shadows of the falling snowflakes on the path. They looked like tiny puffs of black cotton blowing in the wind. Really pretty!

    Nice one Rachel! Great pace! Hope that tear isn’t going to get bigger, was that on your compression tights? I would stop it with superglue or something similar.

    Was just my old Nike tights & the hole/ wear spot from the fall is pretty small so I think it will be okay. Will try the glue if not though, thats a really good idea!
