55 and sunny! It was muddy and slippery on the trail up out of the creek, and I was pretty slow in there. Pushed the pace a little bit on the final hill coming up Jennings Road, and felt great.

Hey now, 48 degrees and sunny! Until I got ready to go out, when it clouded over. Still, a major change in the weather, and much appreciated. Supposed to be 60 tomorrow.

I slipped and fell yesterday walking the dog. The conditions were extraordinary -- snowmelt, followed by a quick hard freeze, followed by a tenth of an inch of tiny ball bearings of ice. I saw several people go down on the field where I take the dog, and then it was my turn on the way back home. I crushed my little finger on the left hand on the landing, and although it turned rainbow colors I'm sure it's not broken, just a bruise.

I got a covid vax appointment this morning, for March 12. This has been such a weird and distressing process.

This turned out to be a really nice event. The Green course was well-designed and fun to run. I'm a sucker for a sunny sunny day with crunchy snow. Like spring skiing.

I wish I had been paying more attention to where I needed to go. Twice I headed to the wrong control. The first time I corrected quickly enough that no time was lost. The second time I went pretty far off course and was focusing on the circle when it occurred to me that I had been there before. But my navigation was spot-on the whole way and I still nabbed second place.

Actual distance covered: 4.4 miles
