It was a cold one this afternoon. This snow is hard work. If you've ever run along a beach, not near the water but in the soft sand near the high tide line, then you'll get an idea of what it's like to run in snow that's not hard packed. You have to take small steps and it's a lot of work. With the windchill it was great to have the new balaclava. You want to have no bare spots.
