The day was beautiful. Clear blue sky and warm sunshine. Unfortunately the air temperature of -3°C and the occasional flurries of snow meant that the first day of the Marcothon challenge was ... well .... a challenge. Rather than do the minimum required distance of 3 miles (or 25 minutes) I opted to do my 4.5 mile run through Victoria Park and up to Hyndland and back via Great Western Road and then down the Victoria Park Nature Walk. It is a good mix of quiet off road running together with pavement running. Nowhere had the snow been made into ice and so it really wasn't slippery. In fact is was a most enjoyable run. I'm ready for the next 30 days!
