    great big loop 7.25 mi 01:35 13:06 pace

    Good golly, Miss Molly, that was fun! Somedays, but not often, it just goes that way. First, I had endless energy in spite of lots of altitude gain. But the big thing -- though I was pushing fast o... read more

      LOL. fortunately it wasn't the rock-hard slick stuff I've contended with before up here -- with temps above freezing, it had enough slush mixed in to get a little toe grip with my Vibram FiveFingers

    Two thumbs up for the Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra! These strap on to your shoes like YakTrax but have spikes for extra grip even on ice. Tried them on today's trail, which still had a lot of... read more

      So the spike doodahs get the thumbs up - good! We have more problems with pavements with black ice and frost than snow, and I don't know of anything with great grip in that circumstance. My radically fit 80 yr old mother hates the low temps when she yomps all over the neighbourhood with her mad Jack Russell - she has YakTrax are great for snow, but rubbish on black ice/frosty pavements.

      Cool. I looked quickly and didn't see "crampon" at first. Needless to say my initial impression was different than my final impression. ;-)

      Part of the art and enjoyment of trail running, I find, is how one develops over time a greater sense of balance and coordination. It's why I sometimes describe my runs as a trail dance; the movements often feel like the fancy footwork of a dance floor. It has become my dance, if you will.

      Besides, The more I do trails, the less I tend to fall or trip. The brain sort of figures it out when you give it no choice. :-)
