All I can say is “Yaktrax Run” – they rock!!!
I got some for Christmas and have been dying to use them so this morning was my chance and they are fantastic! You can just run as normal and be fully confident that you wont slip, slide or skate over the snow and ice and though I thought they may feel strange, I honestly forgot I had them on…..
It was just so exhilarating running in the snow; enjoying watching the children and dogs going mad in it in the park and then on other parts of the run it was so quiet, peaceful and pretty. A lovely run even if slower than normal but at least I didn’t have to abandon it because of the weather so I feel very smug right now!!
I didn’t see any other runners and I got some looks as if I were crazy, including from my neighbour, but then 6 months ago I would have most probably thought the same. But now I am a runner and just have to run come rain, sun, wind or .... snow! Bring it on!!
For anyone else braving the elements today, enjoy it but stay safe. Have a great weekend everyone!
