First Tracks on the Trail

In a winter that seems to only bring snow and ice on days I need a long run, I managed to get in first tracks on the rail trail today. It was a blast to have the trail almost to myself. At one point a fox wandered back and forth across the trail for a while, always managing to stay ahead of me and keep an eye on my progress. Came up on a few other foxes in other spots, and managed to stop and commune with a doe for a while.

Running through a winter wonderland on days like this certainly makes it worth the extra layers and extra effort.
