Light rain and temps hovering just above freezing. Headed out on the trails to take advantage of their solidity while it lasted. Was a fun run and I was glad I got out.
I decided to take a trail to a camp road which was sheer ice. What kinda sucked was it was way longer than I had remembered. However, an older couple who had just passed me slid off the road and I was in the right place at just the right time. Was able to push them out. They thanked me and said I was brave to be out running but I showed them the YakTrax Pros and they said "Ohhhhhh" while nodding in realization. What, do you think I'm stupid? Of course I have extra traction.
After that icy stretch, I was on some lesser traveled snowmobile trails for another mile and was postholing badly. Was glad when I met back up to the previously well traveled trails that had more solid footing. Just under 14 miles for the day. Time and effort wise, worth more.
Ran 13.9 miles @ 10:26/mile pace.
Trails, snowmobile trails. Mostly softly packed, mile and a half of icy camp roads, mile of softer trails.
33 degrees, overcast, light rain.
