A nice winter 5-mile run
I ran 5 miles on the Jordan River Parkway. The path had been plowed, and most of it was mostly free of ice and snow but was wet from melting snow. About 1/3 mile had a lot of snow on it. The shade temperature was 26 (F) when I left home, but most of the path had had direct sun earlier in the afternoon and was still warm, even though there were snow flurries falling during my run. It was 3 pm when I started my run, and I was finished before the sun had set. However, the sun is now down, the temperature has dropped, and I expect the path is icy.
