Thursday nights are usually track workouts with the JSRC. However with freezing temps and light snow, the Vanderbilt track was frozen over. There were only five of us that showed up anyway, so we decided to just do some running around Vanderbilt’s campus. The temps were hovering around 28 and it was the strongest wind I’ve run in quite a while. Not only did this make it REALLY cold, but it was also strong enough to actually move me while we were running. When my back foot would come off the ground in mid-stride I would land about a foot to the left of where I took off. This is a CREEPY feeling.
Also weird was how the roads and sidewalks were completely fine, but the parking lot where we left our cars was frozen over when we got back. We were still running when we hit the parking lot, and a couple of us started sliding around. It was actually hard to walk back to the car. Even with all this it was still a fun 7-mile run and I enjoyed the company. LOVE my running group.
