It was pretty cold but mainly only bad in one direction. I just ran it once and got my T-shirt. But vowed to come back in the evening and do the evening one. So, just about 3 miles on this one.

After a good sleep and a bite to eat, I went back out there and did the second run at 6pm. The weather was about the same only a few degrees warmer and a few mph stronger wind. Two friends wanted T-shirts but couldn't do the run so I got ambitious and ran it twice. The last lap back to the building was blowing so hard I could barely stand up let alone run. But I made it and got my two T-shirts. At least I got in a really nice run of about 9 miles total today. I really should force myself to get out there even when it is awful weather. It was tolerable.

On the drive back to the hotel I saw a lone caribou by Colleen Lake and stopped to take a few pictures.
The weather continues to be dismal though. This is the midnight sun at midnight 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle on summer solstice. Not too impressive!
