Another wildlife sighting! Not five minutes into my run and I had a skunk, with its tail up and aimed at me!!!! Needless to say I picked up pace just a little bit.
Run was solid. I tried a new loop starting at the high school then going up brigham towards the center then onto oak towards swirls and scoops. I then hit worc., south, old upton, keith hill, 122, magill drive through the golf course (which was nice) and then back to old upton, south, worc, oak, brigham and then back to hs.
Just over 9 miles (7:30 pace) in a 1:09. A decent pace with some good hills (worc-south combo, old upton, magill). Pace felt surprisingly easy.
Checked the fells trail ultra website and they updated that most of the snow and ice has melted. Thats good news. I wasn't sure if I would need traction for some parts and have to take it on/off repeatedly. Looking like we could hit 60 by the end of the week.
