Snowshoe Run

I could NOT wait to get out of work tonight. It was a somber day, following the murder-suicide in Fryeburg on Monday. It's a small town, so it's hitting people hard, and today was one of those days where I just wanted to walk out and never go back. So the anticipated run got me through the day.
I got out at 6pm and decided to stay in Fryeburg on the Mountain Division Trail, which follows the RR tracks, for an out-and-back 6 miles with my Dion Snowshoes. Nothing in the way of elevation gain, but the snow was soft. Snowmobiles had hit the first (and last) 1.5 miles which made it pretty runnable, but soft. The middle 3 miles were super soft since maybe 1 snowmobile had gone through there during the day. The pace was slow around 9:33/mile, but the effort was intense. I was super warm, and the fresh air felt great after sitting in the office all day. It was just what I needed.
