A Sun Dog Day

The clippers keep coming and today was another sub-zero wave. But that didn't mean that it wasn't comfortable running the trails. In fact, it was more pleasant at -2° than at 5° with yesterday's wind. The evening snow, together with the wind made for very smooth, rounded patterns  on the snow. The county had just groomed the main quarry loop so those portions were excellent, fast running.

7 miles total today and one of my quickest elapsed time for the quarry trails. Then as I headed back to my Jeep to head home, I saw some distinct sun dogs in the western sky line. Another good workout in the books!


  1. Glad to see that you are back to regular plugging at it for an extended period.

  2. Yeah, Thanks George: I've been able to stay better focused and excited about my own opportunities for competition. The Iowa Snowshoe Championships are up this next weekend and I've entered! I also find that by keeping up with regular blog posts, I feel a bit of accountability. Thanks for your comments.
