Surviving the Snow-pocalypse

If you are in the Northeast, Midwest, or anywhere blanketed in snow...I feel your pain. After an unexpected delay, we beat the big winter storms on Saturday night. I was thrilled, until I realized we had a house without food. I will admit I panicked immediately. Apparently, I need the house to be filled with food in order for me not to go into anxiety mode. 

Day 1: I tried to leave the apartment and got stuck in the parking lot. I ate all the saltines in the house in protest of the snow. 

Day 2: The snow finally stopped. So I jumped out of bed didn't shower and drove to the grocery store. 

Needless to say, the whole trip took over an hour and a bill of about $200.

More snow is expected on Thursday, so I wasn't taking any chances. The best part of the day was being able to run. I bundled up, threw on my rain boots, and headed to the apartment gym.

Sadly the gym in my complex has 2 treadmills and my town is full of runners. I came at the right time and got 4 quick miles done. I don't know what the etiquette is for length of time but I was done in under an hour. I was ecstatic!

Today I am planning on making the drive to my gym a few miles from home. Some CT is definitely in order for the snowed in Texas girl. 

Hope you are all staying safe out there! 

P.S. Don't forget the first #RunThisYear 2014 Twitter Chat is THURSDAY 6pm PST! Come hear more about Run This Year and from runners who successfully completed 2,013 miles in 2013! This could be you!

Happy Running!

  1. I thought I had a pretty well stocked pantry and then we had this blizzard. I wasn't about to dig my car out and it was too cold to walk anywhere! While I did luckily have more than saltines, I realized I need to do a better job for future winter storms! Stay warm!
