The weather was great for this effort and even though I felt a chill starting out, I quickly warmed up and was comfortable (temperature-wise) throughout. My knees did begin to groan during my 3rd loop so I called it at 17 miles rather than force myself through an additional 3. With a 3 mile recovery hike this evening, I'll still hit 20 for the day.
Surprised to see Garter Snakes out in the sun at two different spots today. Again, this is much earlier than I've ever seen snakes out at this time of year!
