Thanks to the recent snow and ice storm, I had no other option but to run my 8 miles on the treadmill on Sunday, because #icepocalypse2015 and because I don’t want to be one of hundreds of people who have come into the ER after falling on the ice because Nashville doesn’t know how to plow or salt the roads. Also, I like to stay out of the ER on my days off.
Needless to say, the ice finally melted this week and so I was thrilled to run outside on Wednesday.
While running, this guy walked past me and said, “Slow down!“. Yes, there may have been a big patch of ice up ahead, but no one has ever said those words to me. So yea. It’s been a pretty awesome week.
