After a brutally cold and snowy week, today’s near freezing temps felt fine for a seven miler on the LoBo Trail. The warm Colorado sun helped. The wind picked up at one point alongside a harvested corn field, and I put my jacket on. I was able to tie it back around my waist again after turning around. What were once head winds carried me home.
This could be my final frigid February run of the year. Next weekend will be March and I’ll be in Austin. Wish I hadn’t gained so much weight this past year, otherwise I’d run some races down in the Texas springtime. I’ll visit some of my favorite trails though, limestone paths through Bluebonnets and cactus. Perdernales Falls will be on my list, along with the Austin Greenbelt. Maybe I’ll get back into running this spring.
