Cold chilly days this week, with temps in the upper teens, lower 20s throughout the week. I had originally planned to get in a run on the treadmill today, but instead hopped on the mountain bike for a quick trail ride -- 16 degrees -- before getting Will to his swim meet. (Really, I just wanted to be outside.) The trail was quiet, and I saw several Northern Cardinals on my ride -- their bright red feathers really stood out against the snow and the bare trees. So pretty! The air was cold and still, and the sound of cracking ice under my tires, as I hit a few frozen puddles, echoed around me.
Just a short ride, under 7 miles, but good to get out.
