Afternoon 'Choo

Came home, strapped on the snowshoes and went for a run. Had to rebreak in my connector trail which was tough work given the nearly one foot of powder that fell yesterday. Once that was done, it connects to a snowmobile trail. Even still, the snow was quite soft. Sans snowshoes would have no doubt just been a postholing mess.

Run went okay. Energy was a bit down. Just didn't feel very peppy, despite it being gorgeous out. I think that was mostly because I haven't snowshoed in loose conditions in several weeks and I just wasn't used to it. Still have a lingering cold to boot. No big deal though.

State championship is on Saturday, so nothing strenuous for tomorrow. Perhaps another snowshoe run no longer than what I did today. Excited for the race, should be a lot of fun.

Snowshoe ran 5.2 miles @ 12:56/mile pace.
Trails, unbroken with about a foot of fresh powder and loosely packed snowmobile trails.
Very hilly.
Mid 20s, sunny.
Dion 121 snowshoes, New Balance MT1010, warm-up pants, long tights, windbreaker, long sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.
