Since there were some comments I feel like I should explain myself. It is difficult to complain when one of my friends/readers is from Alaska, but the whole day was a tough one even for the most vicious of Alaskan runners.
We hit the road at 6AM out of P-Town to beat the storm but by the time we hit Syracuse it was snowing heavily. Once we hit 81N to Kingston it was a joke and down to single lane traffic moving at max speeds of 35-40 mph. The remaining 120 Miles took about 4 hours. In the meantime the cold I was trying to kick last week came back with a vengeance that crushed my spirits. My throat was so sore and raw on the whole drive.
By the time we hit Kingston a foot of snow had fallen and the wind was biting. Snow was literally blowing every direction and gathering in drifts that made waking the sidewalks a kin to a core routine. Temps were below -4 F and -20F with the wind chill. It was the coldest wind I have experienced in years. So with having a head cold, and no where to run I had to bag the day. Its only going to help my leg get better anyway so I don't mind.
The snow has stopped and we plan on hitting the road to Port Elgin tomorrow. Francine and Wykes are gone to run on T-Mills at the gym and I am getting rid of this head cold once and for all.
