Recently I took a trip (actually two trips) to beautiful Mammoth Lakes in California and did some running in the snow. I had heard from a friend in Iceland that the PaleoBarefoots I’ve mentioned before are great for running in snow/icy conditions. I thought I’d try it out, and I’ve made a video about it here. It might seem strange that the first half of the video concentrates on planning and safety – but it’s too important to ignore. Running in any extreme conditions can be dangerous or life threatening – not only for you, but for those who might have to rescue you. Tragically, not enough people pay attention to these aspects and they get themselves (and others) into trouble. What starts as a fun adventure can quickly end in tragedy. Always be prepared and stay safe out there!
I hope you enjoy the video
