gg-girl's Journal, 09 December 2013


It is finally winter in Wisconsin. Fantastic run this morning...I felt strong & steady & wished I had more time, felt like I could run forever...but duty called & off to work I went. Only swore a few times at the other drivers.

R&R (rant & rave); It seems that when the first real snow comes, any & all brain activity ceases for some drivers. It's like there are two extremes...those that go soooooo slow & those that just ignore the conditions & drive as usual...allowances need to be made for the safety & well being of everybody, BUT accessing a highway at 35 mph that is traveling at 60-65, well, that was one of those OMG moments...turns out she had Kansas plates & was clearly out of her comfort zone. As I passed her, she was "white knuckles" on the steering wheel.

So, I got the worst of it off my chest...I could go on, really I could, but actually quite proud that I can move forward!

Hope you are safe & sound & warm & dry & well on your way to having a happy & healthy day!

Congrats on surviving the drive intact and on running in that weather and enjoying it :) Glad you felt so strong, it's a great feeling (not that I run, or have that feeling very often, but I can use my imagination :)

Glad I am not the only one who has a concealed case of road rage! BTW - congrats on your run - that is fantastic!

I envy you that wonderful endorphin rush you got this morning on your run, GG! I remember back in the day when I ran and felt the adrenalin pumping. Nothing feels better! So happy for you. I have been out in the snow driving for years and (except for the other drivers doing stupid things) I was always confident as long as my car had good tires. Last year's run in with the deer in that slick snowy weather we had, has put a new fear in me driving in the mess. I can look out for other drivers but not a deer jumping on my car out of nowhere. They must be blinded by the snow too. Be safe.

Sarahsmum...I really hope you get your knees fixed up soon, maybe then you do more than imagine not being in pain.

Buffy, it wasn't really road rage, more like road terror!

M2B...Oh you are SO right about needing good tires in any adverse weather driving conditions! I got new ones last year & what a wonderful difference they made!
