Running in the rain, slush & snow! | 42.03

Yuck, yuck, yuck disgusing weather. It rained on me from above and slushed me from below! Plus my feet got wet :( Despite the yucky conditions I enjoyed my run. Bit quicker than yesterday and I still felt good :) Plus there was some virgin snow in the parks and I took a childish pleasure in looking back and admiring my footprints - diamond shaped snow chain clad feet! I noticed that lots of trees along my route have either come down during the snow fall or have been cut down for safety reasons. Lots of city council trucks out and about clearing up. Will probably run again on Saturday on the Uetliberg. Hopefully there will still be 'proper' snow up there.
