Trail Running Slick Roads Winter is Coming



This morning I went out for my trailrunning adventure. It was 21F with a real feel of 4F. Yeah. So I dug out my Salomon Softshell Hybrid jacket and pants and my REI winter cycling gloves.


It was pretty cool, but most surprising it was slick. The rain/snow from the day before had stuck on the dirt road I usually run on, and the wet muddy spots were no longer mud slick, they were ice slick. Some of the puddles had frozen over. I didn't see any ice along the creek flow yet. But in the next week or two I do expect it. I'll be in spikes before long, if it keeps this up.
