AM - got out early with Finn and took him to the Forsyth trail - which is mainly boardwalk with some concrete pavement in a wooded / swampy flat area.  Good for easy miles.  Colder than I had expected in the upper 30's - and as a result there was frost/ice on some of the boardwalk areas.  We happened upon a race on the trail - that maybe had 50 people in it, and good number of them were running with dogs.  Looked like a 10k - perhaps a Humane Society run; would have been a bit sketchy/dangerous to race on the icy boards in spots.  Nice run for me today - where I finished in the mid 7 min pace without really thinking about it.
