Today was fantastic! 51 degrees only a 10 knot wind and bright sunny skies. It doesn't get any better than that! Up here on the Arctic Slope anyway. I rode my bike about 2 hours, and stopped at the Prudhoe Bay General store for some sun block. I bet that doesn't happen up here very often. Then I rode around the lake and up some of the muddy side roads. It was a great workout and I didn't even have to half freeze to death riding into the wind.
After I cooled down, I drove 4 miles down the Dalton Highway to my favorite running spot, a little side road that goes down to the Sagavanirktok River. I ran there for just 30 minutes, about 3 miles. I could see that it was not just MY favorite spot, but perhaps the favorite spot of someone else. Mr. Bear.
I found these tracks by my car, but the fellow who made them was long gone.
I hope the weather stays like this so I can continue to get good workouts in the great outdoors instead of the boring old treadmill.Help me fight cancer: http://www.prudhoetopalmer.org/
