Notes from a 5 mile run on Feb 1:
29 degrees and windy. Walked out the door and ran up 3 different hills this morning.
The roads were wet and with the temperature like it was, there were some slick spots. I found that running on the gravel at the edge of the road was the way to gain traction (and keep my footing). First mountain–Castle View road–turned into snow covered gravel after the first big climb.
3 miles into the run I was wondering why the wind didn’t seem so bad, but then I turned around and started running INTO the wind. A whole different story.
