~4 miles @ ~9 min/mi

On my second lap around the 1+ mile wiggly track through the woods the wind begins to hit with a little more force: ice pellets, or tiny snowflakes? There are only a few of them and they melt instantly. It's 1:30pm and I've tried to do a slow first lap to leave room for acceleration. So 9:41 leads to 8:27 the next time, a bit quicker than planned. It's followed by a hard 7:52 and then a cooldown trot back to the building. I pass a man walking leisurely along the path, and ahead of me see a couple sauntering away. The first few verses of Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken" rattle around in my head.
