Cold Lake Minnetonka Trail. February 2014

It has been a season of demanding walking and running along the Lake Minnetonka Trail. My 3-4 times a week walks at 5am (which pale to my wife’s dedicated daily treks) have continued to yield results. Minus 25 lbs. But it is not without confronting the pain of temps dipping to 17 below zero - on my coldest outing. To most peoples' surprise, walking is harder than running. Running creates a little warming engine, inside layers of themal underwear, hoodies and thinsuate. Still the experience makes each day a bit challenging, but a fuller experience. As the winter fails to fade, the trail on this Sunday was unusually void of fellow travelers.
