I'm about to head down the Dalton Highway, leaving Prudhoe Bay and the Arctic behind until I return to work the month of December. The weather looks pretty nice, at least it isn't snowing. There is a low overcast here but most likely it is fairly clear farther south. The Brooks Range is visible beneath the low stratus so I can see that there is good weather ahead of me. No snow in the forecast for the next few days either.
I have an 800 mile drive from Deadhorse to Palmer, Alaska, and most of the road is snow-covered. They keep this road open and clear for the truckers, so it should be fine for me in my Subaru. I have chains with me just in case.
Once I am back home I will be able to continue my running outdoors. That will be great! I am running the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco October 18th too. So I guess I can call that my LONG RUN for that day.
