Went at the shop and the guy walked me through the shop, told me he had specific shoes for running in the snow/ice.

Waterproof lightweight shoes with big/soft grips, they're made for trail running but for snow too.
Salomon speedcross

They even retreated it with the waterproof liquid before I left, told me I had a one year full waranty on the shoes and the price were much better than anywhere else in town. I was surprised really.

They had a treadmill so I could try the shoes and they felt as good as my current running shoes.
 
IMHO it was a Win-Win situation. He just told me to wear some good socks so I wont freeze my toes and to have fun this winter.

Sweet!

Now RUN Forrest... RUN!! :)

I'm waiting for the snow now ;)

Shouldn't take that long, it was 41f this morning when I went out to run.

Challenge it because it is unreachable.
