So this past Monday, I decided to go out to Stony Creek Metropark and do my run there. I had the day off for President's Day so I had time to do this during the week. I'm not sure this would be a very safe run at 5am when it's dark due to the ice so I took advantage of it.
Stony has several trails in the park. I know I've blogged about them before. I decided for this day to run the Trolley Trails. Normally, I'm not a huge fan of running the trails in the winter. One reason is because they are typically snow covered but the main reason is they are icy. They were icy today but I wanted to test out a new product that I received for a review.
Here's the start of the trailhead. As you can see, nothing special here. You can see it doesn't look like the trails are too bad but these do get snowy and icy as I got into them.
As I started to get into the trails(and they are really not that long), you could see the terrain changing:
|An area with more snow than ice|
In fact, here's what much of the trail really looked like:
|Any ice, hard trail for most of the run|
|The hall of pines|
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
