Another beautiful run in the sun today. I wore too many layers and worked up quite a sweat. The streets were mostly clear and dry, but when I had to run on sidewalks they were pretty snowy. The tootsies got cold when I had to run through the knee high stuff, but they warmed up pretty quickly when I got back on the sun baked pavement (OK, so maybe 'baked' is an overstatement). I continue to surprise myself at my barefoot tollerence to the cold. As C McD put it, you are capable of more than you think you are.
The Dirty Dog race was canceled on Saturday, so no race report. I was looking forward to it (and to winning the barefoot category). But running in 15" of snow is tough, as I found out later that day. I ran the streets of CF and went through a park with knee deep snow. That part wasn't a run as much as it was an exercise in high stepping. The sun was shining and Pepper and I had a good time as usual, so no regrets.
Last year I resolved to run a race per month. I count the GNYER as my race for January. So, now I need a race for this month. I may have to try the Oil Creek 50K FA Run on Feb 27, but I'm scared!! What to do, what to do.
