I give up

Here is what our streets look like.

Here is what the sidewalks look like.

There is just no way in hell I can train for a marathon. Running on ice is scary. When the ice melts to slush, it gives new meaning to the definition of unpleasant. When there is salty, 20 degree slush on a layer of ice, I have to quit.

So I am canceling my trip to Phoenix in January. I hope to keep in shape this winter by skiing, show shoeing, cross country skiing and some indoor biking. Perhaps better condition in the spring will lead to faster marathons during the summer and fall.
