Probably got a few more days like this going forward. Trails tend to be OK (relative term) as long as you can be done no more than an hour after sunrise. We had so much of this last spring it was incredibly frustrating (bigish snow on warm ground followed by warm weather). This is my first time not needing to be on the trails for training, so it's a bit odd not having to slog it out in the mashed potatoes, ice, and clay mud. Green, while perhaps the best place to run in the winter, is often the absolute worst in these types of conditions, particularly Rooney and the Green Mountain trail around the base. There are some routes that are doable, but are on the rocky north side and pretty much the opposite of the rest of the GM experience (super steep). Glad you guys got out of there unscathed, I tweaked my groin a few years back in similar conditions, pretty easy. Maggie racing at the Colorado Marathon or you guys traveling?
