The runners road in snow

First snow run of Autumn 2010 today in Winter Park,Colorado
12,060 feet. Highest mountain Ski area town in America .
Went out for a slow and easy 6 miler in my Brooks trail shoes.
Always an event when you have to put on winter clothes for the first morning snow run
 (waterproof gortex running pants-gloves/mittens/ski hat/sweat shirt etc).

Question: What do I do with my Vibram Classics and Nike Free 5.0's ?

Robert Frost (1874–1963).  Mountain Interval.  1920.
1. The Road Not Take
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;        5
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,        10
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.        15
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
