Up until Friday night I still wasn't sure if I was going to run the Winter Carnival 1/2 Marathon. I wasn't sure if I wanted to drive for two hours in total to run 13 miles. I knew that I probably would though.
Friday night I received an email that because of the wind chill and cold temperature the 1/2 Marathon would be shortened to a 10K. The officials made my decision for me: no thanks.
Instead Topaz and I went for a lovely crisp 20 mile snowshoe run. I must say, I am certainly looking forward to the day when I no longer need to strap on the snowshoes. It will be heaven to run the trail with only shoes. Something to look forward to!
I was again offered to help coach the MDRA women's group this spring. I accepted, with honor. We're going to offer a women's boot camp this year, running 8 weeks. The draft of the schedule looks great; Diana Pierce will speak at one session, maybe even offering us some Saturday KARE 11 airtime, we'll take a 'field trip' to TC Running along with other speakers and highlights. I can't wait.
January is just about wrapped up, spring will be here before I know it!
