We had 24 inches of snow in Kansas City over a two week period, but luckily the streets are pretty much completely clear, but the sidewalks still completely covered. They are totally impassable.
This means you have to run in the street. Not the safest way to run, but at least you can get in an outdoor run as long as you stick to side streets that don't get much traffic.
On Sunday, I had a 10 mile run to do. I headed out and was pleased to see that many of the streets had wet spots where the snow was starting to melt. About 1 mile in to my 10 miler, I ran across one of these "wet" spots.....except it wasn't wet, it was ice. As soon as my right foot hit the icy spot, down I went.
I scrapped up my knee a little, but nothing major. A little road rash and a pretty decent size bump. But, I picked myself up, dusted off my pants and my ego and kept on running!
I swear it was the only icy spot I came across during my entire run........only me.
