Comments
Comments: Had 5.5 miles planned for today but only got 3 in. Snow is still deep in places and Spring conditions are making it hard. Had significant balling on my spikes all day and just wasn't feeling it after a while. Stopped at the pond and turned back. Still a full day for myself and my dog and as always, any day I actually get up and out of the house is a good day. Looking forward to clearer trail and warmer weather now. Hoping for a significant melting effort this week.
