Lots of signs of spring today, the occasional stretch of dry trail (gasp!) and rock and ice. It was the earliest I have ever run Lake Minnewanka shoreline and the patches of dry trail were few and far between the stretches of treacherous black ice! I was distracted today, mostly by the scenery and the slippery footing. I felt like I was not moving forward to quickly but could have gone for hours! Enjoy my run.
Ha, I saw your van when I went out to Johnson's to walk my dog. Figured you were out on an epic and I guess I was right. Looks like the training is going well, good job!
Why hello stranger. I completely forgot it was Good Friday and I could have actually recruited some FRIENDS to join me. I could use the company!! The frustrating thing about running in winter is it always feels like you can't get the DISTANCE in....you are out there for 5 hours, but never covering the same kind of distance that you could in summer!
Still, the three lake tour was sweeeeet and it felt like spring was in the air! Nya - I know better.
Absolutely beautiful! Looks cold and like the top of the world. Read your b-bear, g-bear post too. I'd be saying b-b-bear because I'd be stuttering in fear! They are awe inspiring though, beautiful and powerful. Pay attention on your trail runs!
Look beautiful - I'm jealous. Ty and I are having a hard time being "work free" right now and I am feeling seriously cooped up in Cowtown.
On another note, I noticed (due to my serious OCD) that you don't have Blackfoot on your race calendar. Was that intentional?
Great shots from a great run! Did you see any G-Bears?
Good eye Holly - looks like I forgot to put Blackfoot up there, hopefully it will be a social pleasure cruise after the Miwok!
Michelle and Eric - it is pretty isn't it? But STILL FROZEN. Sigh. But there are signs of spring like the bears! I try to avoid bear encounters at all costs - you will usually here me coming down the trail. I've run into a G-bear with cubs and she scared me into singing on the trail. I usually average a couple a summer on trail and a couple dozen a summer from the car.
Love them bears!
*wide-eyed stare at the screen*
boy, that's beautiful! It's hard to get all that in brain.
Wow, that is some seriously beautiful backyard you have there for running.
I am sooo jealous - all we have to look at is pavement after dirty smelly pavement here in London :(
And no g-bears either, double :(
Hi Dave and Sat,
I love living in a National Park!!
..and yes, I am so spoiled. But don't forget there is that little thing that they call "winter" here...either way Spring is in the air!
Thanks for checking in.
