My first trail run of '09 was on the Oswegatchie Hills Preserve trails, which still had a couple inches of snow from around New Year's. It was slippery in some places and I couldn't see the smaller rocks but I had no mishaps. I really labored on the uphills and took two walk breaks. It was beautiful in the woods today though.
Later on I did a pushups test: 30. There's much work to do.

It was 7 degrees F this morning, off to a cold start in '09 already.
Here's a pic to round out 2008. On a balmy day in late December, some younger runners showed me how to handle Connecticut's rocky terrain in Guilford's Westwoods, home of the Bimbler's Bash Trail Run.
