Loving the winter sports...and enjoying the last day of the year!

My two back to back adventures running in the a.m. with Allison and onto GL for some cross country skiing with Joanna! Awesome morning!
Joanna and Jill in the trails....oh, what a beautiful morning!



So, Allison and I started our morning run at 5am. And who should have cold hands today...Allison. But being the tough chic she is, would not turn around and go back to the house to get gloves...so we improvised...and found a great solution - may be a new item to bring to races for those throw aways...we stopped at the local 24hr convenience store and picked up some plastic baggies to tie around her hands - and Allison's hands were toasty warm the whole run! Awsome run we had, the rolling hills course with a major climb to finish off!

And now with 20 minutes in between, hopped in the car to pick up Jo and onto Green Lakes - so peaceful, so quite. A little tricky at first with some of the downhills and narrow trails, but fun. We even managed some lovely climbs...like Hernia Hill! Almost 2 hours out there and could have kept going. Cross country skiing doesn't feel like a workout but it is - full body. You can tell by how sweaty you are when you are done!
Still a whole day ahead of me....last day of the year...what adventures await????

  1. Isn't it wild out today. The first half of my AM run - no snow. The second half - snow storm. Fantastic.

    Happy New Year to your entire family from mine!
