I knew it snowed in Steamboat and winters were white and lasted a long time, but I also thought it sometimes stops snowing. As of right now, I am thinking it doesn't ( I am not complaining, because if it is going to snow, then let it snow).
Two days before vacation began, the full moon was out and the adrenaline was pumping. I pulled Adam from bed at 3:30 a.m. to hike up the Mountain at Steamboat Resort. The best way to ski... with no one.
Christmas in Casper was a success. Santa was very kind and here I am in my sleeping bag, also known as my new winter coat... Now, shorts to the gym are kosher.
And then I got to see her, Pagey-Poo! Post full day skiing (as an 11-year old) at the bar. Why not hang your tongue out.
The last morning in Jackson brought us some yummy Bunnery and an added visit from Page. We were sending a picture to mom since she was a little jealous that Dad got a pic first. Love you Mom
The rest of vacation was a low key New Years with powder skiing ( a day of skiing I actually loved) and jumping back on a Training schedule.. woo hoo. I have been loving it. Without total commitment to each decision, I have punted the NOLA Marathon or Half and decided perhaps on the June marathon in Steamboat (staying local) and... Snowshoe Races
3 Masters classes, one that was 2 hrs long and about 5,000 yds. With a coach, it is incredible how sport can grow on you. Each class has given me so much momentum in the pool.
Run: As of now, there has been 6x 800m, 3x 2 Mile and a 5 MIle Tempo all on the treadmill which I have slowly been able to warm up too. This always happens, I adapt and then I can't go back to roads. The mental strength and treacherous-ness of the treadmill will help on land... I keep telling myself.
