There is something quite magical about snow…. it muffles sounds as it is falling and covers all the mud and grey with a fresh layer of bright white.
It also stops all the traffic, closes the schools and gets people out of their houses !
I love running in the snow, maybe it is the child in me…. It is hard work and you have to be careful of the ice so in some ways it is much safer running over the Downs away from people (most people don’t really go far). Luckily my new trail shoes arrived just before the snow, I had run the tread off my last pair !
My new trail shoes have a different tread pattern on the bottom and it is amazing the difference this makes, especially down hill. I had also forgotten how comfortable new trainers feel and it makes me realise that my old ones really were knackered; they had to go through the washing machine after the bog of doom and I don’t think they really recovered….
Anyway, this is a photo of the snow. I have just ordered a new running camera so hopefully I will be able to post some of the photos from it over the next few weeks so this may be one of the last iPhone photos on this blog 🙂
