WHERE'S MY SKATES??

Since all we seem to get so far this winter is ice, ice, and more ice, I'm beginning to think I need to get a pair of ice skates if I want to get outside for any exercise. Even when nothing is coming down, its been cold enough that none of the earlier snow/ice will melt, or if it does, it refreezes over night. I don't think the sun has been out since last month either!
But then I remembered I have Yak Trax, those handy little things you can attach to your shoes to give you some traction on the ice. (Can't upload a picture so you can see them though!) They are so lightweight you won't even know they are on your shoes. And they do keep you from slipping. Now if I could just remember where they are! Be careful out there!

Thanks for leaving the first comment on my new blog! Geez, now I feel bad complaining about cold rainy weather when you're talking about "Yak trax" so that you can run on ice.

It has been some intersting weather.

I was just thinking about buying Yaktrax today. I haven't been pressed to do it though because the weather here has been pretty decent. BTW, I'm outside of Philadelphia.

We've been lucky and it hasn't been too icy yet but I am sure it is coming our way. Careful out there!

I'm going to have to get myself a pair of those. I really don't mind running in the ice and snow, it is just the constant worry that "Mr. Klutz" is going to kill himself out there.
