Slow and Sloppy McAlpine Run

76 mins. (9.5-10 miles)

I met Jess at Old Bell for today's long-ish run, uncertain but hopeful about the trail's conditions. As it turned out, this run more or less sucked. The snow was several inches deep and too soft in most places to support our weight, which essentially meant we were sinking in and spinning our wheels for most of the run. There were several miles on the Footlocker course that weren't too bad (possibly because it was under tree cover and therefore didn't see as much precip hit the ground?), but overall this was a very slow and frustrating go. On the bright side, the landscape was beautiful and the sun kept temperatures very comfortable throughout.
