Things I learned on last evening’s trail run:
1) An emergency pair of gloves should be a staple in any gym bag for when it’s unexpectedly 50 degrees and windy.
2) Running with your hands in your armpits for warmth makes trail running a bit more precarious.
3) Hands can remain numb for 9 miles (or aproximately an hour and a half) and still regain feeling without medical attention.
4) Wild Agressive off-leash dogs are not deterred by cold weather.
5) Teddy Rosesvelt may not have been a runner, but he was on to somthing with his “big stick” philosophy.
6) Those dogs didn’t stand a chance.
