So I went by REI this morning and picked up these spikey thingys that slip over the bottom of your shoes so you can run in the ice/snow. Then I went up to Jeremy Ranch where the air is clean and pure and ran the whole enchilada. Took pictures that you can look at on my twitter. @murphy_rob

Great way to start 2017. Only thing better whould have been to have some company.

Nice run. Wish I could have joined you, could have used some company too.

You got microspikes?

It's funny because I never owned a pair despite growing up in Colorado and living in Logan for 8 years. Then I moved to South Carolina and bought a pair (granted, it was for a winter trail race, but still)
