I opted to wear a winter headband instead of a Bondi Band today, and my ears thanked me. I didn't wear the best mittens and my fingertips were freezing for the first mile. Thankfully, they warmed up one mile in! I told Linda that it was surprisingly chilly during that first mile. Had I been by myself, I probably would've turned around! Another reason to have a running buddy!
Linda and I did the 10K loop around the UW Arboretum and the Henry Vilas Zoo area. There were a few runners out this morning, but not too many. It was nice to have company on the run today, otherwise it would've been quite lonely out on the quiet road.
Linda and I experienced some fancy footwork with all of the ice on the roads and trails this week. Some spots were more difficult to maneuver than others. But, we survived and had a great time catching up! We ran 6.22 miles in just under 1:02.
After the run, we had to get our signature bloggy photos, back at the Visitor's Center .....

Third time's a charm!!
I *heart* Linda --- She's the best!!
On my way out of the Arboretum, I spotted these feathered friends. Glad I didn't encounter them when I was on foot! They were on the road as I was passing through with the marathon mommy minivan!
