Temperatures are rising up top. Yesterday was a beautiful day. The high was in the upper 40s. The snow and ice is starting to melt away. There are still some icy patches up top. Chris and I are back in training mode. We have a race in February we are training for. The icy trail was putting a damper on our schedule. Thanks to our good buddy, Dave Worth, he shared with us the solution to icy trails. Sheet metal screws in the bottom of our shoes. We drilled the short screws into the bottom of our old running shoes. So, if you hike up and see two fools running around on the ice, no worries, we are prepared.
