Well tonight was interesting. Went for a run after work up Yankee Hill. At first it was beautiful, then it was rocky and fun, then it was snowy and questionable, then I got stuck.
About a quarter mile later, the entire trail was snow. I punched it and...stopped. I was able to back up and assess. At this point, I'm 9 miles into a 10 mile trail. So close to finishing. I have a winch and could pull myself thru. But...the sun set 20 min before and it's almost dark. I'm at 10,000' and it's going to get cold. There's a town at the end of the trail I could walk to if necessary.
What to do?
I turned it around. Yep, had to retrace my steps but knew I'd make it home.
