Gateway Getting Better

Miles 8-11 had been plowed after the last snow.

First EGRET sighting of the season!

Sweet Pea and I ran/walked about 6 miles yesterday. This was the only slush we saw on the trail. The temp was just over 40, but
spring IS coming. Tomorrow it will be in the 60's.

This is me in heavy winter jacket, just standing around waiting for Super Runner Dude to come running up the trail to meet us and cheer us on.
Regularly, we have been at the indoor track and out on the street in the neighborhood and doing resistance training.
For the next week, though, we really will get serious about training.
Stuff going on here lately. I have showed up absent in the blogosphere, and have lots of reading of interesting posts to catch up on now. Appreciating all patience.

I know what you mean about getting behind on blogs. We were gone 2.5 days and now I have some reading to do!

Your trail is looking better and better! Do you ever get a picture of Sweetie coming toward you? I think we always get the rear view! Hopefully, the next picture of you will be in a tshirt and shorts, outside on that same trail. Wouldn't that be nice?
