The word of the day is "bombogenisis." It's what happens when Nor'easters stop being polite and start getting real.

I -- Adrienne -- had four miles on my plan today. I did exactly none of them. Why?

This is what my car looked like at 1 p.m. It's all the way up to my BAMR sticker!

Not only was I not inclined to run in a blizzard, I couldn't get out to a place where there was a treadmill. And, incidentally, all of our roads are closed to non-essential travel. So, um. No run for me.

Some other BAMRs did better than I, however.

Like Heidi W.

"Didn't go far because I couldn't always run on the plowed roads, and the snow is about a foot deep and is similar to trying to run in that deep, dry sand at the beach. But I did it. 🌨🏃🏻‍♀️❄️❄️❄️"

And Judi M., who was sensible:

"9 treadmill miles.... plows still haven't come through and it's still snowing... 16-18 inches here!"

And Heather D (and her canine companion):

BAMRs got it done over on Instagram, too.

How did you get it done during Winter Storm Stella? Or, for most of you, Tuesday?

  1. Storm just about winding down in Buffalo, N! But Tuesday morning I was supposed to run a tempo 5 mi run but got in only 2.4 miles in! It was honestly a tough run through the snow! Loved every minute of it!

  2. Stella brought alot of cold wind here in PA. Got on the bike trainer for 30 minutes and then 20 minutes of strength w/abs.

  3. I pushed my long run from Sunday to Monday so Tuesday was a rest day. Stella dumped over a foot of snow in Southern NH. I think today is a snow shoe day! Yay!

  4. March has been more wintery in NNY than the rest of winter was. I ran both days last weekend in the bitter cold. Tuesday is my rest day, although my commute home was anything but restful. Today is a day off work and I am hoping to run once the roads are plowed. I almost lost my little dog on her morning walk. We are fortunate that the snow is fairly light, even if we did get more than expected.

  5. Stella was started later here in Boston. My husband and I got up early and went to the gym. Home by the time it started!
