Today's run was epic! It snowed all night and continued through our entire run. I met up with Katherine and her friend Shelby, who may I add is not a regular runner, and headed through town to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. We ran the Shoreline trail for a few miles before turning around and heading back home. It was anything but a boring run. Snow, ice, speeding cars, slushy puddles, wet socks, calf high snow on the trail, you get the picture. We ended up with a little less mileage than we initially set out to do, but with the snow depth it was rather slow going.
Three ladies out on a mission!
Shelby and Katherine. May I just take this moment to say what a badass Shelby is. Girlfriend isn't a runner and thought that a half marathon distance in the snow sounded like a great idea! She kept up and had a blast like a pro!
The "non-runner" powering uphill ahead of us.
It was a true winter wonderland!
It was fun, hard, amazing, difficult and I loved every minute of it, however I think I'll wear my sunglasses next time. Now I'm seeing stars*! Hmmm...
12.1 (+ approximately .25 when I stopped my garmin & forgot to restart it)
*The stars finally went away!
