Running and cycling has been a bit tough these days in Atlanta after a winter storm dumped 4-5 inches of snow in the area. (I got in one 5.5-mile run in the snow the other day and plan to get out again for a couple more short runs before a long run over the weekend.)
The Southern folk don’t exactly know what to do with all of the snow/ice. And because the entire state has about 10 snowplows/salt trucks, it has taken a while for them to clear the streets.
So… while waiting for the ice to melt, I decided to challenge some of the neighborhood kids to some good ol’ fashioned street hockey. The ice was a bit choppy from the tire tracks, but nobody got hurt and we all had a great time!
Hopefully, the weather warms up a little soon and the ice melts so I can get back on the bike soon. If not, I can always stick with the street hockey training regimen for a little longer!
