๐Ÿ’ชYES!!!!!!! I did it in the snow! ๐Ÿ’ช

๐Ÿ’ชYES!!!!!!! I did it in the snow! ๐Ÿ’ช

And it couldnโ€™t have been more magical! With Tina Turner ๐ŸŽถ Simply The Best ๐ŸŽถ in my ear and beautiful snow! Snow is one of my passions.

When I started on 7th Jan, I never imagined Iโ€™d get this far. Then, a few weeks ago when i realised It was achievable, I wanted make my graduation run special and by the sea. Sadly, life and weather didnโ€™t allow for that and then the Arctic Blast arrived.

I almost slipped on ice 3 times in the warm up walk so had to run ridiculously slow but I did it! In fact, it was nice to take it slow and realise the stamina the program has helped me build.

Thank you Jo Whiley and all the wonderful warm and encouraging people on this forum. I could have done it without you but the point is, I wouldnโ€™t have.

So emotional and ecstatically happy! ๐Ÿ˜‚โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช

A massive well done to you! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ and congrats๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

There is no way I could have ran this morning. We have snow drifts and itโ€™s still snowing now. No one has moved out of our village.

Hubby and I were knackered walking dogs in the fields etc this am and snow was up to my thighs....well almost!โ„๏ธโ„๏ธ

Thank you Maggie. It is hard work in the snow. I went for a beautiful walk last night in virgin snow and it is hard work. Especially when itโ€™s as deep as you have it.

I adore snow but Iโ€™m now willing it all to melt so I can do my first post grad run! I hope the weather where you are improves soon.

Thank you Woo45!

Hubby walked 2 miles this morning to the next village to get some bread and milk. We kept in contact by mobiles. The lane in the village and the road out was not passable at all this morning.

However the farmers have been out with their tractors since and have started to clear the lanes. Nobodyโ€™s been driving out yet and I never went running. I think I probably would have sunk in the drifts hee! hee!โ„๏ธโ„๏ธโ›„๏ธโ›„๏ธ

So tomorrow Iโ€™ll either try and go out running or it will be treadmill. Didnโ€™t do that today as so much was going on today I thought Iโ€™d leave it till Sun.

Like you I too adore snow but Iโ€™m willing to say ta! ta! to it this year and eagerly wait to welcome spring with open arms and my running shoes ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ๐Ÿ‘Ÿha!

Take care Woo and happy running๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€
