This week brought the dark chasm I call winter.
Somehow, the single digit temps (and the teens) take a lot more effort. Maybe it is all of the extra clothing.
But, we had some snow, so I put the screw shoes in action again. Check out this post from January if you want to see details.
I actually saved my shoes from the Superior 100 miler, as I had torn away some of the treads from dragging my feet for 30 miles. The screws held them together.
I was still able to get 54 miles in this week, but I took a lot more effort (and I was slower).
Hung out at Kiernan's Irish Pub last night to see a college friend play drums for the "sweet colleens". I should get out more, it was a good time.
It will be a major challenge to get in over 50 this week. BUT, I am starting to think about next years' plans. I really want to go back to Kettle and redeem myself as well as trying to nail down a "faster" 100. still too early to tell.
Bundle up out there.
