Running in Nor’Easter 12/27/12

Nor'Easter Photo 12-27-12

Well the storm that was supposed to drop 10-18 inches, might have given us 8 inches of new snow, which is enough, when you have a 300 ft driveway to snowblow, but not quite the “blizzard” or bad Nor’Easter that had been forecast.

I am glad that we didn’t get the full brunt of the storm, in some ways, but it would have been nice to have gotten a little more, so I could get out my snowshoes or cross-country skis.

I did go out for 3.0 mile run during the storm and below is the video that I took during the run.

The run wasn’t that bad, since the town had plowed the roads a couple of times, but the wind was pretty tough when running back into it. I also wanted to try out my Chromebook on some basic video editing using Pixorial and then posting it to YouTube. It was fairly intuitive and once I uploaded my videos to Pixorial it was easy to use. Just like any program there is a learning curve and I am sure that more that I use it, the easier I will find it to use.

Weather: Nor’Easter with white ice under the snow in many places

Course: 4 Laps Philbrick Road

Garmin Stats 12-27-12

The dip at the start was me trying to get the camera to record for the first time, I had to stop and figure out which setting was video, all the symbols have worn off the camera over the 4 years we have had it. I guess I use  it too much.

Gear

*Shoes: Adidas Vigor – they did pretty good in the snow/tar sections, but I have a feeling that tomorrow I will be doing a video on how to create a pair of “screw” shoes, so that I don’t slip and slide all around on white ice/snow.

*Socks: Swiftwick Pursuits, merino wool socks, my feet were warm the entire run, even when some snow got down inside of the running shoes, they quickly warmed back up and I forgot about it.

*Top: Yellow sleeveless tech shirt, Hind Blue L/S tech shirt

*Bottom: Blue New Balance Wind Pants, Nike Pro Combat Compression shorts

*Outerwear: Orange Frank Shorter Running Jacket, HiVis Converta Gloves, Brooks HiVis Ball cap, Red ear muff

    • Actually if I hadn’t been trying to film it with my bare hand, it would have been more fun, but I still had a smile on my face at the end, so it wasn’t too bad 🙂

  1. That darn storm had us stranded in the Orlando airport for over 12 hours! That’s funny you got out in it and ran 🙂 We didn’t get that much snow dropped from it here in Indiana, maybe about 8 inches or so. I guess it was the winds that were the main problem that caused the flights to be cancelled all over.

    • Christina I am sorry to hear that you got stranded at the airport, I hate that when it happens. We didn’t get much more than that, I just happened to find the worst part of it – lucky me huh ;-). The winds were pretty bad.
