Tightrope walker

Rye Meadow was slippery this morning. I wore trail shoes, having found last week how little traction huaraches have: I joked before the start that barefoot might be best, as one could dig in with one's toes, and maybe that was more right than I meant it to be. Along the riverbank and through the meadow I slithered all over the place (as did everyone else). On the tarmac I did OK, and at the end the Garmin data show that I managed a respectable turn  of speed, but I have lost 20 seconds since last week and am a minute off my personal best for this course. Time for some serious New Year's Resolving ...
