|Faux snow report from the Squaw website.|
To state the obvious, I’m not skiing at Squaw today. Earlier this week, I cancelled my flight to the Biggest Little City in the World – the always lovely Reno, Nevada – and instead of spending last night in a flying tin can, I camped out on my couch after some Fuse Pilates (where I ran into boot-less Emily – how awesome is that for her??!), watching Grey’s Anatomy with a Sweetgreen grain bowl in hand. My 2011-2012 ski season is off to a ridiculously slow start.
This year, I feel the urge to take advantage of the mild temps and run both weekend days – one trail run and one road run – in addition to the mid-week Runhers winter maintenance. I’ve got my work cut out for me if I plan to run a trail race in late spring (hello! I hate hills!). And, I’m totally getting my money’s worth with the winter maintenance program. The coach figured out my name the first week that I showed up and has been promptly calling me out ever since. That’s a good thing, right?
So there it is. Mother Nature has dictated that so far this winter, I’ll be running more.
