Running Safely in the Winter

I have no marketable relationship with Yaktrax, but I do want to sing their praises, if briefly.

This was my morning run.

Understandably, most people don’t see these conditions as an opportunity to head out on a run. Thankfully, most people think differently.

With Yaktracks, though, the outdoor trail running season is whatever you make of it. This morning was indeed a bit cold and snow from the past two days made for a crystalline path in the early sun. This turned out to be a cool bit of solitude in the forest and along the Deschutes River.

Some people claim–and I question that claim–that they can tell when dogs are smiling. If dogs do have a capacity to smile, Guinness, my sled dog, was doing just that.
