After running in snow yesterday (wasn't much, and in fact it was just the lightest coating in the most protected spots on lee sides of various objects) at Remarkable Flats, running today featured much milder and sunnier conditions. And, since it was getting late in the day as I was strapping on O' shoes, it also featured shadows. Even after years and years of doing this, it still sometimes surprises me how much more difficult it can be to see across the terrain when the sun is getting low and near the horizon this time of year.
Today's course was about 9 1/2 kms at Twin Boulders. I designed it to include a lot of sage and bitterbrush to make the running chewier. If you can run efficiently through the sage then most other things feel easy by comparison.
Given that the weather was really nice and that it was Friday, it was odd not to see a single camper pulling in or already set up, and I didn't hear a single ATV either the entire time I was out. It almost felt like The Rapture must have been happening!!!
But when I got back to my truck and turned on the radio to listen to the news, they were still talking about Trump, so I guess not.
