Caught on LIVE TV: Joggers learn the hard way ice and snow not ideal for running laps

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, O.R. - During winter storms on the west coast last week two joggers stopped to talk with Portland, Oregon's CBS news station.  They told the reporter how the snow was the perfect texture for running; very low impact and dry so your feet don't get wet.

They then started jogging off, but after about 30 feet one of them lost her footing and fell flat on her back.

The video has since gone viral.  The jogger told Deadspin that her parents have been playing it on repeat and laughing hysterically.
