Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Fa, la, la

By | January 30, 2015

“Oh the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful”

This is what I was thinking last Friday night, on the eve of my first time out with Franklin Road Runners. With the snow coming down and so cozy inside, I was wondering about the next morning and how it would all work out. Last Saturday was the inaugural 7:30 AM run organized by Seth – 5 or 6 of us committed to coming out but as the snow continued to fall, the concerns and doubts were rising.

What if…..the car was caked with ice

What if…..I couldn’t get out of the driveway

What if…..the streets were snowy, icy, slippery (yah get the picture)

What if…..no one showed up!  (the biggest concern)

And last but not least

What if…..the trails were snowy, icy….

Still snowing out when I went to bed, I set 2 alarms and resolved to take it one step at a time the next morning – if any of these became barriers then a decision on whether to carry through could happen then.

Saturday morning arrived.  (Wish I could say I didn’t need both of those alarms but, yeah, I did!)

Snow had stopped – good sign.  (But “What If…..”)

Got all suited up and had 10 min to spare – time enough to deal with the car. Oh, and no caked ice. The car only needed a little brushing.  Alright, on to the next step.

Driveway -> clear…awesome

And beautiful scenery on my way out of the neighborhood.

Streets -> again no problem! All Clear and got to River Park with plenty of time to spare.

Next big step, “People” -> will anyone be there?

Yes! I met Kim first, then Camille and then as we were standing to see if Seth would show up, another runner found us and informed us of the group on the other side of the bridge.  “A Group? Did he say a group of runners?”  Totally unexpected but soo nice to see all the people that turned out!  And then we were off and running…..

…..and…..then…the moments that were worth all of the time spent in prepping and getting there -> running in a very peaceful and beautiful place, one of the best places to be after a snowfall.

All of the “What ifs” melted away and running with this scenery and snow all around was delightful! Being there was worth well worth all the prep!

And the last lesson from this?  Keep your guard up on your footing even after getting off of potentially icy trails – you never know how slick the “post run” breakfast place parking lot may be  :)
