The last three nights, five miles each. The runs were challenging, as the trails have become skating rinks again thanks to some recent thawing. But we now have dipped back into the deep freeze with some overnight temperatures in the single digits below zero, so the trails are frozen solid. This afternoon was 19 degrees with a wind chill of 11. But it didn't feel too bad. The sun was out, and the sun felt kind of warm. That being said, I am still ready for spring.
I am not a fan of figure skating. But, the performance by this young Canadian skater at the Olympics last night was nothing short of incredible. How she managed to hold it together, especially under such difficult circumstances, is beyond me. I hope she wins it all.
Apparently you can't embed the actual performance, but NBC's link to the video is found here.
