Our area had a little bit of new snow yesterday morning but not enough for it to be slippery. Something that I love to do when it is slippery and there is a lot more snow on the roads is to wear a pair of trail shoes. The traction on the bottom of trail shoes is even better than on normal running shoes so they help to keep me from slipping around on the run.
Beck knows exactly how to keep me from leaving for my run right away in the morning… He pulls out all of his best smiles and snuggles which makes it near impossible to leave. I waited to go until he fell asleep again:)
PS we were watching this episode on Modern Family the other day and now Andrew calls me a border collie. I go a little crazy without running.
Kelly recommended yesterday that I listen to the Princess Diana series on the podcast ‘You’re Wrong About’ and now I am hooked. You guys always have the best recommendations and I’m already looking forward to listening to the rest of the series on my runs for the rest of the week.
Not sure why I took a picture with this large chunk of snow but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
This is the most climbing I have done in a long time and I felt muscles working that haven’t worked in about a year:). Time to work on my cadence.
I came home to Brooke trying to convince Beck to start playing with his toys.
My view from the computer yesterday:)
Andrew had another gift card from work for Chipotle (and your comments yesterday made me need Chipotle in my life) so we took advantage of that with some burritos.
And Skye is SOOO into building right now. She goes straight for the blocks when she wakes up in the morning.
These kids of ours love going from the hot tub to rolling around in the snow and then back to the hot tub. You could not pay me to attempt this.
I’ll finish off today by sharing my gratitude for hot chocolate and my fireplace.
Give us a winter running tip that helps you!!
