shoes: O' Icebuds 2014
Blue course at Hilton Area, Patapsco State Park. The park was still buried in snow. I would say there was a good 5-6 inches of semi compact snow. the top layer was soft but the middle had a crunch layer to break through. it made it very hard to run through. It was harder to walk through but to tiring to run. It was a no win situation.
On the way to control 2 after breaking my own snow path I was wondering how far I could make it before I would have to quit. I wasn't sure I could make it the whole 10K. Fortunately I then joined up with the ultra path and they had cut a trail enough. the snow did change the complexity. Places I would have taken a different route I went the longer way to get the use of trails where the snow was already beaten down. In one case I followed a deer path because then had already packed down the snow some.
Overall, I was happy. I finished the course. I navigated well but didn't really have to pay that much attention given that I mapped the area recently and had tracks to follow for much of it.
