Snowy run: Blizzard style!

In case you live under a rock, newsflash: The northeast experienced a BLIZZARD! Dun dun dunnnnn. We all survived, and NYC fared fairly well. Who knew the 12 inches of snow would be no big deal? Not me. However, I got a little stir crazy after walking Lambeau Puppy, who dragged me through snow drifts and giddily galloped in the fluffy white stuff. I wish I could say I was totally nonchalant, but I was totally encouraging him and laughing all the way! Ha ha ha....

Mom, I believe this snow calls for a run. Or more pictures. Pick one!

SO, I got Kim to meet me and we embarked on a SNOWY run! I began the run by saying, "Be prepared, I'm going to take a million pictures." I think I limited it to four, which is pretty impressive. Little did Kim know, this is how I felt during our run: 

My mom found ZERO photos of me in the snow as a child... traumatized...

When I arrived at my local park/happy place, I was greeted by a myriad of fabulous sights. Smiling faces, little kids in snow clothes (I want to tackle them....), children sledding, dogs frolicking, it was a joy overload today!

(Top then left to right) My track became a dog park, grown adults had a snowball fight/wrestle, and the waterfront path was plowed 2 seconds before we ran on it!


As my Instagram caption said, "6 year old my just gave me a fist bump and said, "You've still got it!" 

I've always loved the snow and this storm was no exception. Mr. Miller and I made sure we had a good time while being "snowed in"; Mr. Miller shoveled, we ordered Chinese food, watched Sky Fall, walked to enjoy an AWESOME bluegrass band, and Lambeau got to pretend he was a husky. Overall a nice weekend of relaxing and enjoying life!

AWESOME Bluegrass band at The Queens Kickshaw!!! 

How about you? Did you weather the storm this weekend? Were you a snow bunny as a kid? Do you have a hard time imagining us East Coasters suffering under inches of white stuff? Are you a snow runner? What did YOU do this weekend? TELL ME ABOUT IT!
