On Saturday, there were extreme cold temperature warnings in the forecast when I got up. I dressed in lots of layers and headed out to meet our group at 8:30. Diane caught up with me on Yonge Street and we both commented that it didn’t seem as cold as the forecasters had predicted. I had been thinking about completing 9 kilometres and skipping breakfast in order to be on time for a later event. But Diane’s logic woke me to the possibility of walking 6 kilometres and having breakfast. A much better plan!
There were a lot of walkers out. Mary and Barb, training for the Chilly Half, had already completed one loop of the cemetery when we gathered. Nicole led us in oil-ups and off we went. It was great to see Laurel and Sue back outside after recovering from their injuries.
The footing was a bit precarious with a dusting of snow over the ice. At least one walker went down but thankfully, without injury. Our eggs tasted especially good after the very fresh air!
