Intentionally headed out for an easy day and it was a good thing. The overnight temps in the teens and then the sun shining on the ice meant very slick portions to the trail. I saw several other runners today and each one was slipping on ice at some point while in my sight.
I was pleased to come across a new cache of black walnuts that I bagged for cracking to replace what I've already eaten from last fall's stash.
9 miles and it took me longer than what I was able to run yesterday's 15 mile practice but enjoyable in a different way. An additional mile walk just before dusk...felt good to get out a second time and loosen up a bit.
