Adding to the misery, most of the sidewalks are sheets of ice from the weekend thaw. Not even the inch or so of snow we got today did anything to cover them us because the 30+ MPH wind gusts blew the snow right off. It is just terrible running right now. And temperatures are supposed to dip into the below zero range later this week, so this stuff is here to stay for awhile.
I love winter running, but this absolutely sucks. I ran possibly my slowest 5 miles ever. There are no good places to run outside right now. And I am going to be bitching and moaning about this for some time now, just to forewarn you.
A grilled cheese sandwich with oven-roasted tomatoes and my super porchetta bacon cheered me up a little, but I am still kind of pissed off about the running conditions... ;)
Cheesy, bacony, tomatoey goodness
