12 mile skid
Sunday is run day, or at least it was the day after my DGG attempt. We awoke to a world of white snow covering the ground, and by mid afternoon all had melted and everything was dry and good to go. Jeni and Jia Li got a head start by hiking up Skyline and I ran up to them about a third of the way. The ridge was in great shape and I only saw two people up there. From there it was around the college, down Chapman and up Lion's Den for a nice ~12 mile run, 2k climbing run.
The Hokas are nearing the end of their life based on worn tread. I'm going to try their new shoe, the Biondi Evo B which looks to have better and perhaps more durable tread. Weird how mountain bike tires last longer than shoe tread.
Six more miles...
