I want to do more trail running.  Hiking too. While we live in the city, there are plenty of places around here to do both – so this is definitely feasible.

I got the trail running itch after that trail race a few weeks ago. But then my finger tip was hacked open blah blah blah and all sorts of routines were thrown off – exercise included. It only follows that any trail running plans were put on hold too.

Trail Running Truths

Welp, a trail race was on the agenda for this morning! 10 kilometers to be exact.

Yes sir – 10 cold, rainy, snowy and more rainy kilometers. On the agenda.

Also on the agenda? A bunch of lessons to be learned. Get ready to take some notes.

Stay in the car as long as you can.

Rainy Race Day

Let’s not rush to get out there just to stand around in the snow and rain, mmmk?

Wet Shawn

Snow is better than rain.

Wet Snow

Because you don’t get soaked quite as quickly. Whose idea was this race anyway?

Do Over

I felt much better this morning after my some green juice and a family walk to the playground. I definitely was up for a trail run when Shawn, my running partner in crime, showed up and we headed out to a large park just down the road to hit the trails.

I need a do over of this picture because it would be much more interesting if me and/or Shawn were in this shot – but alas, I didn’t think about that until I was home, photo op lost.

Trail Run

Oh wait, there I am.

There I Am
