Busted Winter

Anyone who lives in New England and pays attention to the weather may recall that last fall, many of the big weather organizations were calling for a very snowy winter in our region. Granted, winter isn't over yet, but what a bust it's been so far. 

Just wanted to keep the legs loose here on the eve of tomorrow's MWC, so kept it short and slow on the trails out back. Equal parts bare, ice and packed snow. Late March conditions, sans the mud. 

Thankfully, this will be my last run where I'm estimating distance and/or pace. Tomorrow's race is obviously timed and on a measured course. And Monday, my Timex Run Trainer should arrive. Decided not to go with Garmin for various reasons, and the Run Trainer seems reliable, accurate and has all the bells and whistles I want (and then some) at a better price. 

Ran 4.0 miles @ 9:30/mile pace. 
Trails w/ ice, snow, dirt. 
Moderately hilly. 
Upper teens, sunny. 
Nike Waffle Racer VIII, Yaktrax Pro, long tights, windbreaker, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.
