Head of Tides

Headed out this morning for another "from the door" trail run, this time with a run out to Head of Tides. I really am lucky to have such great options for running right across the street!

It was a lovely sunny morning if a bit windy and cool. Most of the ice has disappeared with only a few small patches remaining - hurray! - but there was also a whole lot of hoar frost to trip and twist ankles in to make up for it ;) Also, with overnight temps below freezing, there was some very interestingly textured semi-frozen ground, almost springy in spots. Still, found some fine high dry trail to run along too. And of course, the river was roaring and beautiful as always. Got in a nice mellow 10 miles for the morning.

Roaring river, no ice today

After I got home, Sam and I did some reading together while Ryan got in his run, and then the two of them went off for a lunch date! They were unable to attend the Valentine's Day Father/Daughter dance due to the snowshoe race, so this was their date instead :) And I had the house to myself for a bit, so it was a win/win!
