A bit of warm up jogging.

Eric S set the course for a local event at Rockcrusher.

There were a few inches of snow on the ground, making the footing a bit slippery but also fun. We were a bit concerned about the roads yesterday, but the snow stopped yesterday afternoon and the roads were basically fine. I was a bit surprised they'd plowed the road to the start - a dead end gravel road with only 1 or 2 houses along it.

Control 5 was not in the right spot. I spiked the little well in the center of the circle but realized that wasn't where the flag was because (a) I didn't see a flag and (b) I didn't see any footprints anywhere near it. I wasn't really sure where to look and kind of stood around a while before deciding to head up the reentrant. I did that and spotted the flag. From my track it looks like I spent over a minute just standing and not being sure what to do.

When I was heading to control 7, I spotted a bald eagle circling just above the tree tops...and Paul C. leaving the control. It would have made a nice photo.

Leaving 10 I slipped in the snow going down a hill and fell backwards. My back is a little sore.

My feet got cold after running.

Dean was about 5-6 minutes ahead of me.

other 25:00 [1]

Shoveling. The snow looks really nice today. It was actually pretty good for commuting - the snow didn't start until after I arrived at work. It stopped before I left. The roads were ok (traveling about 55-60 mph on K10).

We've got an event at Rockcrusher tomorrow. I'm helping with registration. Not sure if I'll run the course or just run to help pick up controls.

running 35:00 [2]

An easy jog on West Campus. The weather changed during the day. It must have been over 50F when I did my lunch walk. Then it was about 40 when I went to the library for the board meeting. Then it was 35 when I got out. It was 28F when I got home.

Jogging on West Campus. It was warm today - probably upper 40s when I ran.

I ran a very short sprinty course on West Campus. I actually ran it twice and the total time was about 9 minutes. But under my standard method of recording time, that becomes 5 minutes.

At Rockhaven.

I put out 5 mini-markers for a practice course. The course will be on the OK facebook page and I'll leave the markers out until some time in March.
