Weather: Stunt run!

Colder and colder.

Going up Range Lake Road, I felt like turning around. That wind was prying into EVERYWHERE.

The first few kilometers are a lie though, right?

I kept going, and by the time I was ducking off Old Airport Road into the trail, it was better.

I only took a quick glance at the spreading wet spot on Frame Lake (the Coop corner leak) but didn’t go look very close. didn’t want to cross in the wind anyway.

Went through the trail, with the aurora egging me on, and lost all track of everything while I shuffled through my usual trail. It was the best kind of autopilot.

Training Tip: Charging devices 

With all the devices I run with, charging hasn’t often been an issue. I thought it might be valuable to go over my practices though.

I let my gear acclimatize back to room temperature before plugging in the chargers.

I always let them fully charge.

I choose wireless charging when I can, because plugging a wire in and out will be extra wear.

Lastly, I like to stop now and then, mid-run, and turn everything off. See how nice the run would be without my lights/music/tracking.

Mostly, it’s fine. In the summer, it doesn’t get dark, or not for long. In winter, the snow and a bit of moonlight are enough to move with confidence, but if it is dark, I would be stuck in some areas. It’s good to know.
