Video: Running in Falling Snow

Running in Falling Snow from Pete Larson on Vimeo.
I filmed a short clip while running in a snowstorm this afternoon – it was absolutely beautiful, and me and my dog Jack had a blast cruising through the falling flakes. This video is just to show that snow is no excuse to not go for a run – in fact, some of the best runs you have occur in conditions just like this!

  1. Librarian on the Run says:

    I know that when it’s snowing, the last thing that I, as a driver, expect to encounter on the road is a runner. Do you take any particular precautions in case a driver cannot see you or loses control of their vehicle in the snow? (I’m sure that NH drivers are used to winter conditions, but just in case?) I ask because I wanted to run outside yesterday in the snow but stayed inside on the dreadmill for safety, and it was far less enjoyable than an outdoor run would have been.

    • Pete Larson says:

      I mainly opt to leave the music at home in those conditions so that I’m more
      aware of my surroundings. I find that in the neighborhoods around me I can
      stay on the sidewalk for most of my runs, and where sidewalk isn’t an
      option, I just stay in the shoulder and try to be extra careful.
      Fortunately, I’ve never had a car incident in almost 3 years of running this
      area.
