Happy to be back on track
I ran at the Weber High School track this morning! It was the first time I've been up there since before Christmas due to deep snow and freezing temperatures. Actually there is still quite a bit of snow covering most of the track, but about 1/3 of it has the outer lane clear where the sun hits it all day. The other portion of the track still had about 7 inches of frozen snow which was difficult to walk on, but I walked around on top of the snow to the melted section and then ran until I was back to snow. But here's the bonus--the south-facing bleachers have the cement steps cleared so I could run the stairs. It was exhilarating. The downside of the whole story is that there is more snow in the forecast for tonight. But for one day in February, it was nice to be back at the track.
