Ran this morning on my local Lake of the Woods trail in Mahomet. This trail is host to the annual January "Riddle Run" 28-mile Fat Ass (January 26, 2008). We had just less than an inch of snow fall overnight with light snow still falling as I ran. We are supposed to get 5-8 inches by Sunday morning. It was a great run. Slow and easy with just a light wind knocking the flakes into my eyes. I love that temporary blindness when the snowflakes melt in your eyes. Tomorrow should be tougher if we actually get a few inches of snow. At least it's not ice! If the roads are good, I'll try for a Clinton Lake trail run (with a camera). The high temperatures have hovered around 30 degrees for the last couple weeks. I guess winter is here.
