Our closest Redbox is just under 1.5 miles by foot, so I knew if I ran them back, I could simply tack on a little extra and I'd have completed the first 5 by the 5th run.
Two birds, one stone!
So, I put on the hat that I knit on NYE (it's an alpaca/acrylic blend) and my neck gaiter that I made last year.....

I slowed significantly the second part of my run because the trail had a lot of nasty spots of black ice- I even slipped once, but I always feel kind of cat-like in that 9 times out of 10, I handle ice really well.
I ended up with a cold, icy 5K finished in 29:55. Yup, a helluva lot slower than Monday, but not every run is a race. Some are simply for fun-- or to run an errand!
