45° for a winter trail run?? Yes, please! Someone described running in the slush like running when you're drunk & that is 100% accurate.
Just to keep things interesting, I forgot my running shoes, which are gore-tex insulated & largely waterproof, & had to buy shoes on the fly last night, & of course they didn't have the GT Asics so I broke the cardinal rule of never running a race in brand new shoes & my feet are very wet.
Then, when I stopped about a quarter mile into the run to bag up his poop, Tucker slipped out of his harness & by the time I noticed, like 5 seconds later, he was rounding the bend way up ahead. I had a split second of OH SHIT MY DOG IS LOOSE SOMEWHERE IN THE WISCONSIN WILDERNESS & then he came barrelling back, so at least we now know his recall is decent 🙄☺ It was gorgeous & uneventful after that. We're now ready for the trek back to Minnesota. 🐕🐕〰️🏃♀️ #canicross#canicrossdogs#canicrossusa#runningwithdogs#dogsontherun#winterrunning#kenosharunning#rivermonster#tuckerrye#huskymix#huskymutt#aussiemix#aussiemutt#huskymixesofinstagram#aussiemixesofinstagram
