Snow Emergency and Training?

Here in Central Ohio we have received about 16 inches of snow in the last 24 hours. I haven't been outside since I arrived home yesterday evening. The bank and post office are both closed, and those are the only two places I needed to go today.

However, I do need to fit in a 12-mile training walk this weekend - originally scheduled for today. Deb and I were smart enough to cancel today's walk. I'm thinking that if we get it in at all, we might have to do the entire distance in hiking boots and winter coats.

I'm not really sure what to do if we totally miss today's mileage.

The photo is of my 14-year-old son shoveling our sidewalk for the second time today. Note that the snow in the yard is up to his knees. (He's about 5' 8" tall.) Last Thursday it was so warm, every bit of old snow had melted away.

It snows a lot here, too (though not today, thankfully :)!) so I have to have a gym membership for a backup plan. I am lucky in that it has an indoor track, so I'm not stuck on the treadmill. Still, outside is SO much more fun!
