8:54 AP.  Despite the freezing rain and ice sheets for roads, I drove all the way to Northwest Wichita to run with the GoRun group and attend the seminar.  The run was dangerously slick and we stuck to the grass and leftover snow as much as possible in search of traction.  It was harder work than the pace indicates!  I slipped 3 times but only went all the way down once in grass and escaped unharmed.  I sat with Lacy and Angela afterwards and did a little catching up.  The seminar was excellent and I am looking forward to attending again next week when the discussion will be about form and efficiency.  The guy doing the presentations is a physician and avid runner and has a lot of very interesting things to say!  Drove home very slowly and made it in one piece.  This was the maiden voyage for my Mizuno Precisions but I can't judge them off that kind of run so perhaps when I am stuck on the treadmill today(snow day--kids are home!) I will try them again!

Running in most kinds of adverse conditions is a good workout. I bet you worked a lot of different muscles when you were working to keep your balance!

certainly not-- about your precisions. They are VERY slippery non-traction shoes. I plowed thru the ice and snow last year WAY more easily last year in my heavy ascics cumulus. Glad you made it back ALIVE.

funny how Kansas is like TWO weeks after our weather every time :D. We had a brief warm spell but still it going to be above 32 degrees today!! and 53 in St George. More like 40 for the start, I think.
