Perhaps there is evidence of climate change. We keep seeing headlines of weather related anomalies that seem to indicate a departure from the norm. I know that the most recent winters have not been what I remember as standard when I was growing up.
This past week has presented some of the very best snowshoe running conditions that I've ever seen. With outdoor track and field scheduled to begin in 3 weeks, I can't believe the snow conditions that we're seeing now.
The county got out yesterday after my run and groomed their portion of the trails. There are a few stretches that I like to run where I've stay just off the county grooming and it has become a very runnable and quick section.
Even with the sub-zero temps today, I was comfortable, especially when out of the wind, so I got a brisk 6 in and totally enjoyed the outing.
