My health was not 100% today but I needed to get back on the trails. It was sad to be along the same path that I had so often taken with Cory's dog, Buck. There had been a fresh layer of wet snow last night and the trail seemed softer than recent trips. There was still light snow falling, at times, and it was very quiet. Only a very few other tracks to indicate that there was not much going on yet out there today.
In passing one of the benches along the trail, I couldn't help but do my own edit and dedicate today's time on the trail to Buck.
Surprisingly, my legs and breathing felt incredibly good and the walk/run was easy today.
