BOS c. 4pm for skate sample - pretty hard crust but worked well enough. Balance, balance. Seems more daylight than I remember other early Marches.

WTF with W. Blue, white, bright, March. Parked at old town hall, took Rookery to Eagle, to Esker to Stinger to Eastman. WTF is gorgeous in most areas, hemlocks and hillocks with open hardwoods in a few places. Might have walked back on Br. Londonderry but too icy to have any appeal. Spring melt will be most welcome.
So to speak. Went to BHS around 3:30. My time, no W. Wanted smooth-enough surface to myself. The infield track looked fine but proved too crusty and at one point, I nearly was blown off my feet. Looked at a field in back but too much ice to start with. Not meant to happen.

Great Hill w/ W. Bright, blue and surprisingly windy. Trail packed hard, icy on slopes. Sheltered in the sunny lee of a cairn at the top. Down a different way. Saw/spoke with one couple. Willow's birthday walk it was.
At Kimball with W coming back from a haircut in Dunbarton. Did some of East Loop trail, wasn't prepared to do a loop though. Icy trail in places, had Yak-Traks but ice-free is much more appealing.
Driving to Goffstown hair cut offers an opportunity to drive over the complete 10. mi loop I used to run, last c. 2016. From start point 5 mi to Tirrell Hill/Black Brook jct and, in returning, left at same Black Brook jct & 5 mi clockwise to finish - & then the 4+ miles home.
@BHS around 3, clearing, some blue sky, even shafts of sunlight around 3:15. Working on balance confidence. Surprised when the nordic team showed up. I thought their season was over - the c. 200m oval wasn't groomed but ok surface anyway. Coach came with groomer as I was leaving. Turns out the state meet is this Wednesday at Great Glen. This was their last or next to last training.

From Walker kiosk to Weblos to Eagle and back on Br. Londonderry. Hadn't been on Weblos in yrs. Surprised it was only 0.85 mi at Eagle jct. Foggy day, esp at higher points on drive over. March at last...
