Trail running first snow

Woke up this morning to snow on the rooftops, in the shadows and on the grass. The ground is still too warm for the snow to stick. I went for a run and it was snowing graupel. I wore my windproof tights and a jacket over a medium base layer. I wore softshell gloves, helmet liner, and a nylon baseball cap. I was wearing mountaineering socks under my Hoka Stinson Evo Shoes. Winter is well on the way here. I'm looking forward to ice climbing and have started my training.

Back in Training

Ice Season is just around the corner. There are a few thin trickles of ice near my Summit County Colorado home and office that are sometimes good enough to climb in the first week of November. I'm counting on it.

I've returned to weight training on a regular basis after having had almost a year off. I had some injury and illness issues that prevented me from going to a gym but now I'm back in and cranking out my Ice Climbing Fitness Program.

If you're curious about what that is, I'm sharing it with my Newsletter Subscribers HERE so go subscribe and get the complete details once a week through the ice season.
