I can recommend the snow trax with no reservations! I've seen traction devices for your shoes at REI and might invest $65 if I was doing a lot of hiking or climbing mountains, but for walking or running they were very helpful. There is nothing worse than falling on ice and snow. These really helped keep me upright and felt comfortable running in them as well. You can find them at Amazon.
Needless to say with the temps below zero and snow, my mileage has fallen off dramatically. I'm hoping to at least get in 30 more miles this month.
With that said, I am glad to have the snow clearing a little. The weather has warmed to mid-30's. They say it's a warming trend.....A warming trend would be me in Hawaii! lol
Have a fantastic weekend.
