6:30am: Today was a horrible run. The temperature was fine, 37 degrees. The wind was nasty, 30mph+, but that was not the problem. The roads were ice or black ice with some water on top of them. I literally had to stop and walk several times because it was flat-out dangerous. Even my bolt shoes did not help. I ran (ha) 12.29 miles in a pace around 8:30 due to the conditions. It felt more like a survival outing than a run. I will try to get some fast miles in tonight.
6:00pm: It was 40 degrees and very windy tonight, but all the roads that were ice this morning were just wet tonight. I ran 6.57 miles and in the dark I saw 3 deer dart in front of some cars while running up Satterfield.
