Happy New Year!!

Got out and ran today at Hartley Park. Air temps were below zero, but not much, with the wind picking up and becoming quite brisk by the time the last folks came in. I put an invitation out on Northland Runner and ended up having 8 runners and 7 snowshoers come along for the fun (and two dogs).

The sun was shining and in the woods the wind wasn't noticeable. The trail had been pretty packed down so was quite runnable without snowshoes over all, though there were a few spots that provided challenging footing. The deal with winter trail running is that you need to slow down and enjoy your surroundings. If you get too hung up on time, then you get frustrated by the footing and cease to find the beauty that is northern Minnesota in the winter.

Sorry no pictures - again. It was too cold to be messing around with my camera and I forgot to ask the kids to borrow their smaller one. You will just have to use your imagination.

OKC: still working on the Embossed Leaves Socks and the "Bird Mittens", with a few washcloths on the side so that I can read and knit.
