So much for another weekend of warm weather. I was in tights and long sleeved wool shirt on both runs.
I spotted some different daffodils in this area. It's always a pleasure to find some different variety than the standard giant jonquil.
This picture doesn't do the tree justice. This was a HUGE tree snapped in half, probably due to the derecho storm that went through the area last June.
Yes, it's mid April, and I am still wearing a fleece headband a wool shirt.
We still need water here. The creeks are very low. At this time of year, they should be bursting.
But that means the bridle trails were in very good shape, and since there has not been many horses out, they are not chewed up yet. (Hey, they are the horses trails.)
This was an oddity I spotted. These are daffodil sprouts, but this is on top of a big old rock. How did these get here? Did someone plant them?
These are "fiddleheads". Some types of fiddlehead ferns are edible, but I don't believe the ones in our area are. I'm not adventurous enough to try them either.
I had some good runs. Energy was good on both days. On Sunday I had a bit of a niggle with my left knee. This is the knee I fell on last Saturday in the 50K. I went ahead and iced it down after my run.
I wore my new La Sportiva Ultra Raptors, and tried out my new Ultraspire waist pack-this one holds two bottles. Gear is getting pretty set for MMT. 27 days out!
