hello snow!

This weekend was a good one, with a wacky ending. I had a class all day Saturday, but made sure to get in a 7 mile run afterwards.

I was chugging along just fine, when around mile 3, I hit some black ice….and went down…HARD! Totally bruised my hand (and ego). But, I got back up and kept on going….stupid ice! Can’t really tell in the picture, but there’s a massive bruise and swelling under my pinky 😦IMG_1895[1]

Joe and I went to dinner at Fresh Craft which was delicious! Then we were up nice and early on Sunday morning to take advantage of the fresh powder.IMG_1891[1]IMG_1890[1]

We had an awesome day snowboarding at A-basin and tried to hit the road early to miss the traffic heading back to Denver.IMG_1894[1]

Our plan didn’t work….we moved about 1 mile in over an hour. Eventually they closed the highway and we were stuck!IMG_1898[1]

I booked us a room at a hotel we’ve stayed at before and we headed to the Dam brewery for dinner. We both had to be to work the next morning, so we were up and out the door at 4am to drive back.

I actually managed to get to work on time, but was basically a zombie all day yesterday.

Hoping this week goes fast! # day weekend ahead! I also have some really exciting news to share with you all on Thursday (you may have seen it on IG πŸ™‚ ).

  1. Ahh, I heard people were stuck on 70 for 9 hours on Sunday!! Sounds like getting a hotel room was a brilliant choice. I hope your hand heals quickly! I just moved from FL and I already have a deep hatred for black ice. No bueno!

  2. OMG see this is why I have been mostly running on the treadmill – so afraid of falling on the ice. Glad you didn’t get too too hurt. Ugh is it Spring yet?

  3. 50 mile race! You are nuts but so exciting!! Good luck with your training!

  4. Yikes hope your hand heals quickly!

  5. oh man the suspense is killing me, even more of a reason to make this week fly by
