First Run in the Park

Still plenty of snow left
Friday, March 14, 2014:

Spring will get here eventually.  We three went for the year's first run in the park.  The grass trails are still buried under snow and ice, but the park people have done a good job of clearing almost two miles of paved trail, so we parked the car at one end and went out and back.  I ran for 18 minutes and turned around, probably doing about a 12-minute pace for about three miles.

The temperature was almost 40, but the wind was 25 mph and gusting higher, so it was a good test for the upcoming cold-weather marathon.   Two shirts and a wind jacket above, running pants and long sox below.

Whining: None.  Good run.  No problems.
