Pipeline extravaganza. well not really an extravaganza but a really fun run nonetheless ,... one of those trail days where the views on the trail were fantastic because the snow was fun and new and no one on the trail.. bit slippery but not bad
Pipeline up from birch hollow in about 10 new inches of snow. Beautiful. Sucked out the energy at mile 2 as was somewhat blazing trail from 1.5 on...and i was hungry...sweeet day. Microspikes worked great...just tore up my medial malleolus as usual...will need to try the rivets. I think the microspikes may be better for the softish snow that needs a deeper more substantial traction.. but I will try the other and see.
Wonderful run day. Pipeline trail again from birch hollow to overlook and back. 15 degrees at the start but beautiful sunny day. Shorts though. Im finding that shorts are fine even if super cold as long as not windy. too late afterwork to go skiing so this was a great way to spend 90 minutes. Brain cleanser. couple other runners on the trail. afterwords soak in the hot tub and then 3rd night of some Lord of the Rings marathon with son Will. Awesome stuff.
