Snow Makes Way for Spring

Fun group run today with Ian, Lily, Jim D. and Randy at Bradbury Mountain. Stephen and his buddy Jim G. were also there but they got an early start and we missed them. We were pretty surprised others didn't show up today, given how awesome the weather was.

Another notable aspect of this run was the lack of snow. Warmer temps have really been melting things off quickly. Definitely more on the packed down snowmobile sections, but we were mostly on the single track today and bare ground was by far the most prominent.

We kept the pace slow today, but the trails had more twists than a Dan Brown novel and they were pretty technical to boot, so that also contributed.

Ran 7.2 miles @ 10:27/mile pace.
Technical trails, mostly single track. Some patches of ice and snow.
Very hilly.
Upper 30s to upper 40s, sunny.
Asics Trail Attacks, shorts, short sleeved shirt.

I was stuck in a windowless room with 600 other people down in CT - the conference was worth going to but I really missed my trail runs (or any runs for that matter) while I was down there.
