"Today is a New Day" -chicken little
Take advantage of the season that surrounds you. That was exactly what I did this morning. With temps above zero and a steady snowfall already started I immediately made my way to the Hartley trails for an hour of snowshoe. The trails are getting in great shape and I had to break fresh trail only on the gasline. Snowshoeing is a different beast of running. You use the hip flexors a lot more and one needs to allow time for these muscles to adjust or you can drive yourself into the ground real fast. It was snowing at such a rate that once I made my way out of the woods some 50 minutes later, my initial tracks were covered up.
