Ontario was hit hard with a bad ice storm this past week. There are still a lot of homes without hydro. We got off lucky in Yarker and were essentially unaffected, but feel for the people trying to celebrate the holidays without power. I’m sure that in some cases it will be difficult, but in other cases it will be a Christmas filled with many interesting and great memories because of the Ice Storm.
Running can sometimes be a bit of a challenge during this much ice. Our country road was essentially a skating rink at one point, as were our beloved running trails. Armed with hobnails or microspikes though, we had some awesome runs during this time and thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of all the ice that covered the trails.
Check out a few of the trails we ran…
And, on a Running Streak note…I had a nice run with Sara on Christmas Day which marked 24 years (that’s 8766 days) of running every day.
Happy Holidays to all!
