New Year Trail Running

I’m amazed at how advanced athletic gear and equipment has become in the last several years. I just went for a trail run this afternoon in temperatures that were in the high teens and felt as compfortable as running in 60 degree temperatures. Back in the “old days”, (70’s and 80’s) I wouldn’t have been able to put on enough layers to keep warm. Well, I would have – it’s just that I would have had so much extra weight and bulk that I would have been slowed to a crawl.
I did a nice 5+ mile run in the Eagle Bike Park, with a warm-up/cool-down of 1 mile each way, for a total of just over 7 miles. The trails are snow covered, but packed and in great condition! I stopped on the ridge top and got a few pics with my iPhone. (Click on the photo to see individually, and click again to see full size).
