20.2 miles on the PRT & DDMR. The run started at about 38* with about a 19 to 20 mph wind that made it feel a bunch colder even though there was mostly sunshine. Oh well, I just kept my head in the game and gotter done. That hot shower after I got home surly felt wonderful!

13 miles on the big block & mt rd. 20*, 6 mph wind, 43% humidity, and all that snow piled up on the shoulder of my Running roads. What a pain it is dodging cars and trying to figure out where it’s safe to run without running on ice or calf deep snow. 53 days till Boston...
