Happy New Year to everyone!
The girls and I started off our year on the right foot with 12 miles for 2012 on the rail trail. The run started off a bit cold at 28F. However, the sun was shining and there was zero wind. Since it rained all day yesterday, the trail was super slick for at least the first half. On our return run, after our 6 mile snack/water stop, we noticed the ice starting to melt in some place and the sun was warming up. Today was one of those days I wished my Garmin could tell me the temperature. It surely had warmed up significantly. We were guessing at least to 38F. Believe me. In Maine, on January 1st, sun + 38F = real treat. I'll take it as long as I can get it!
