Emma and I ran together at Twin Brook tonight, it was our first trail run together since the Vermont 50. That was a long time ago.
Jim was there at the beginning and James and Maury met up with us about halfway through. There was still a thin layer of soft snow on the ground, in many places covering a layer of ice. It was a slow run but that's probably the way it should be for several reasons: knee, ice, impending Fat Ass. I'd like to be able to run all five laps of the GAC FAt Ass 50k this Saturday, but I haven't gone over 20 miles in the past 8 weeks so stepping up to 50k is probably too much. But I'll see how it goes.
distance: 6.00 miles
weather: 29 degrees, clear
conditions: hard packed snow, ice
gear: Brooks Cascadia 3 screwed, wool socks, tights, 2x long sleeve tops, thin gloves, buff
