Snow Day. No Swimming - Snow Shoe Time!
Today it snowed. It was supposed to snow over a foot of snow. I think we got a little over 6". But that didn't stop everyone (except my employer) from preemptively shutting down for today. That includes my gym, where I go swimming. So, instead of swimming I went out snowshoeing with some fellow chubs. I forgot how much work it is to walk around in fresh snow with snow shoes. I really like my MSR snow shoes. They don't look like your typical 'tennis racket' snow shoe. Rather they look like something out of the future, with a flat, rectangular shape, and big metal teeth on the bottoms. You don't have to walk like a duck as much with these.
