For all you pre-dawn or post sunset runners in the wintery north, just wanted to mention, though I'm sure you are well aware already, be careful of the potholes!!<br><br>
We have had so much snow, and several freeze-thaw-deeper freeze-thaw even deeper-freeze-thaw cycles, and when it would thaw, it would rain buckets. Prime breeding ground for potholes and man are they out there. I hit two this morning, that were not there on Wednesday. One, my heel and arch sank down into it, but I had firm enough footing that I managed not to twist an ankle. I almost caught the other one with the tip of my shoe, but just skirted it in time. I do wear a headlamp, but they can be tough to spot in the dark regardless.<br><br>
So I managed not to trip, and not to twist an ankle, but it made me be more aware after that. Just be careful out there!

Amen. I stepped in a hole the other evening and somehow managed to not twist my ankle. This was on a running path and I was moving over to avoid some runners coming the other way. Since I was heads-up looking at the runners I didn't see the hole but felt it when I stepped in it. It was also dusk so I didn't notice it in the shadows.<br><br>
Glad you weren't hurt Charlotte!

Yep. And it's still that time of year that what looks like a "puddle" could actually be ice. And, it's that time of year that the angle of the sun can be blinding to drivers. I 'spose all seasons bring about risks!
