2008 Begins

Out the door this morning to beat another nor'easter that's supposed to hit us pretty hard this afternoon and tonight. Did an out-and-back variation of one of my routes that climbed to the top of a ridge. Was feeling good so I tacked on a few miles more than the eight I had originally planned.

Overall I love the snow. But when there's a lot of it on the ground, it does make bio-breaks in the woods challenging. Fortunately, a couple of deer had post-holed a path into the woods near the top of the ridge.

Eyelashes froze together on the way home, but that was just a minor nuisance. Otherwise, felt great throughout the run.

Ran 10.2 miles @ 8:34/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 143/161
Paved roads, patches of snow and ice.
Very hilly.
Mid to upper teens, partly sunny.
Long pants, fleece jacket, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.
