Albany/Conway/Madison Roads

I decided to hit the road and run from home again this morning. I brought along my microspikes, but after only about .2 up Cranmore Shores, I realized that I wasn't going to need them. Dry roads!! Since I didn't feel like carrying the spikes the whole way, I hid them behind a fire hydrant, covered them with snow and then just grabbed them on my way back. It was a pretty decent run up Tasker Hill and Allard Hill, although I felt like I should have gone a little faster. 10 miles at a 7:26 pace wasn't bad, though. The last mile was slow since it was the only place I needed microspikes, but I just didn't feel like putting them back on.
John was dropped off shortly thereafter. I let him play some video games before making him break trail on snowshoes with me up Heavenly Hill. I feel like I'm constantly breaking the trail up there. It was definitely a grind, but John really enjoyed himself just playing in the snow and then running the whole way back down. I was surprised that he didn't complain once. The weather was actually beautiful and it felt good to be up there in one of my favorite places. I seem to be the only one who ever goes up there anymore.

Tomorrow is a 24-hour shift at North Conway Ambulance. I'm really looking forward to it. I miss my old Wednesday 24. I'm not sure if I'll get a run in or not, but if I do, it will just be something super short on the treadmill in the morning.
