35F, 15mph+ wind, moderate snow/wintry mix - Run with the Road Hogs from the Spot. Started out nice and easy for about 15min, chatting with Cathleen. Then it turned into a fartlek kind of run, trying to catch the runners ahead. Caught up to Nicole at the top of Erie and ran with her till the bottom. Then ran up Brotherton in tempo pace to Madison, where I chatted with Lauren and Steve briefly to catch my breath. Took off again up the hill to Observatory, and eased back the rest of the way. Added an extra mile at the end around Key Crescent.

Weather was, um, interesting. It started out as light steady rain, which turned into a moderate/heavy snow - the kind with big, fat, wet flakes. It was surreal, like I was running in a giant snow globe after someone had given it a violent shake!!! Then for a while, it was freezing rain/ice with some mean cross winds. Towards the end it was back to light rain again, but by then I was thoroughly soaked and chilled. So, it was "interesting" to be out running in such weather, but it certainily wasn't all that fun. Okay, splashing through the giant puddles were kind of fun.

Note: forgot to wear the ankle brace, but it was fine. R-glut however, seems to be acting up again. :(
