Let it snow, let it snow......

Woke up this morning to a beautiful dusting of snow...amazing how Facebook just goes wild when the weather changes!

I love all seasons...and the key to keeping with your running program throughout is to GET OUT IN IT! Enjoy the cold, brisk mornings, the glow of the snow. So fortunate to have all of our high-tech gear to accommodate any and all temps - well, the heat, you can only take so much off!

So, today, I was planning to take a rest day but instead ran 6-7 miles with some of the WR girls...a couple who are getting ready to run Marine Corp. A nice canal run, the snow already melted from the sun, the colors of the trees are still beautiful yet fading...

Winter - its coming, and I can't wait to drag out those xcskiis, yak tracks, running snow shoes...and experience the trails which will seem all new and excited as the scenery changes. My cold drinks afterwards change into hot teas, hot chocolates, hot soups...my car is set up as my aid station as I run through the nights! Excited about it all...seems like yesterday.
