    My first proper snow run
    By Nisto


    Winter has been mild in Copenhagen. The temperature has been hovering just above freezing for what seems like months: always cold, never cold enough for snow. Until yesterday.

    When I picked up my oldest son from school to take him to capoeira (yes, I remembered!) big snow flakes were falling from the sky just like you want them do to on Christmas eve. It wasn’t freezing, but it was damn close, and most of the snow flakes managed to cling on to the ground long enough to make a snowy carpet in our street. My feet started itching.

    When we got home at 17, the cargo bike begged for winter tyres, but I had other worries — and besides, we don’t have any winter tyres for any of our bikes. At 18, I had to pick up our youngest son from a friend. I had one hour to de-itch my feet. To continue reading, please visit ---->: http://onoldage.wordpress.com/2014/01/14/day-14-cold-feet/

    'Last year, I ran 4 kilometers in -5C in Prague, but on bare tarmac, with no snow and only a few small patches of ice. It gave me a blood blister, but it wasn’t excruciatingly cold'

    I like your notion of 'not excruciatingly cold'. That is far colder than I can bear !

    Great and fun report, thanks !!

    That's awesome! Mild January here in Alberta, Canada, but I ain't going barefoot! Thought about it, but too much salt!

    Hey Nisto it's great to see you craving snow. Glad to see you having fun. I bet this reinforced your wife's notion that you're a bit crazy.

    For me, fresh snow cools down my feet quickly. I prefer running on packed snow.
