Winter Run Log: 12 Nov 09, 5mi

12 Nov 09 trail run

This morning was wonderfully warm with about 2 inches of slippery new snow on the ground which made running a little more challenging. It would have been MUCH more enjoyable on skis but I need to do a little maintenance on mine before I do any training on them this year. Also, I need to work on becoming more graceful on them.

Distance: 5mi
Temps: 17°f

Gear

  • Wool knit cap
  • Base layer (capilene)
  • Top layer, Northface poly (Flight Series)
  • Pants, poly (Perl Izumi)
  • Socks wool mid-weight hikers
  • Shoes Saucony ProGrid Xodus
  • Wool liners (Ibex)
  • Head Lamp (Petzl Tikka XP2)

Observations
It was very slow going uphill with the new snow. Conditions were just right for sliding my feet effortlessly right out from under me.
