Weather: NOT a stunt run

The weather warmed up for this daytime run. I wore my sunglasses, but I’m not sure about my other dressing choices.

Below 9 beats per meter. I think that’s some kind of record.

I warmed up by running down Franklin to Rotary Park. Waiting there for me were some friends who wanted to run the Dettah Ice Road.

This is a unique and challenging run, across Yellowknife Bay to the nearby community of Dettah, then back.

It was really a nice treat today. Interesting traffic, and I’m pleased to say it looks like there is a small road going from the Dettah end to the trail coming out of Kam and Meg Lake. (this strava segment shows the connecting trails)

It was a great day, with perfect weather. I didn’t dress perfect though, and getting colder and colder, so I surrendered and took a ride home. It turned out to be a better decision than I thought, since it came with chocolate chip muffins. (thanks, Amanda!)

Great catching up with that gang!

Here is a flyover video of the run, showing how far out on the water we get. A garmin glitch makes it look like I ran off the road, away from Amanda at the end, but I didn’t.

Training Tip:  LibriVox free audiobooks

A terrific free find, this site boasts ‘Free public domain audiobooks, read by volunteers from around the world’

Basically, any out of copyright works may be included. A rating system however, is not.

This is an essential part of librivox, allowing anyone and everyone to read in. It means you have to check favourites or ratings on other sites, but that’s fine because there is a HUGE library available.

Twinning honeysuckle?
