to assist for better confidence in "snow" running? I love my micro spikes but they can be a bit heavy. The nano spikes are lighter weight, but maybe not as good in a couple inches of snow......

I have a pair of nanospikes I really like for icy conditions. They probably would've been good today since the snow was so packed/icy. I just didn't even think about the fact that I would be running in snow, so I completely forgot to bring them and brought the wrong shoes!

Also, nice job keeping up the biking this winter! Are you training for Mark's coast to coast race?

Thanks! Actually, I've gotten us into a bit of an aggressive spring race calendar that we're trying to ramp up to. They're all endurance gravel races on the tandem which is turning out to be my favorite type of bike racing. LandRun 100, Barry-Roubaix 62, HellKaat 100, Mark's C2C 200, and wrapping it up with the Dirty Kanza 200 in June. We probably won't want get on a bike all summer!

I'll be visiting my sister in Pittsburgh in a couple of weeks and will be getting out on the trails. Maybe we'll see ya run by at South Park :)

That’s half of the biking I did last year, All in races, All by June. Holy smokes!

Ya, not saying it will be a successful spring race season, lol....... but we're going to try! It's all about drinking the beer at the end of the race. It's a powerful motivator :)
