Hi everybody!! How was your weekend? Apparently I have found it difficult to work a full time job and blog because I couldn’t be bothered to update on Friday 😉 haha.
We headed to A-basin Saturday morning and it was FREEZING!!!!! I mean negative 24…..I could only do 2 runs then had to go in to warm up…not my best day, but we still had fun.
We left the mountain early, and stopped for a tomato pie in our neighborhood.
The next morning I had a 10 mile run planned (I wanted to do it last Wednesday or Thursday, but a new job get in the way). But Joe suggested trying our first trail run. We both want to get into this, so I was pumped. It was still CRAZY COLD, so we picked a shorter route with a HUGE elevation gain and set out.
This trail was basically straight up and at 7 degrees I was not a happy camper! Also, we were told to look out for bobcats, mountain lions and moose….YIKES!
Here’s what we saw at the start!
Tons of mule deer! I struggled through the first couple miles, but enjoyed the rest (except my fingers/face were numb)….overall, here is what I learned :
- I need trail running shoes
- Wait til it’s at least 10 degrees to try this again!
- My lungs feel very different at 9000 feet than at the 5280 I have gotten use to in Denver.
Then it was home and to bed- full week of work ahead and we have a friend coming this weekend from NYC 🙂
How was your weekend? Did the cold front hit you or do you live in the warmer temps?
