Involuntary Mud run and Tahoe so far

We have been having a blast so far in Tahoe. For the most part it has been pretty chill (but isn’t that what vacation is for?)! A lot of hanging out, eating, some shopping and of course running! I have actually gotten in more running here than I had thought I would (although not as much as a normal week). Hey gotta make room for all that yummy food i’m devouring here :)

mudy legs 018 and yes that is yummy bread pudding from The Chocolate Bar..sooo good!!

Okay, sorry got a little distracted..but it’s such yummy goodness! I have been trying to get my run done in the morning (although it is pretty chilly) so that it doesn’t interrupt any plans for the day. Yesterday was really nice because although there was snow on the ground, the roads were fairly dry. Today, however was a different story! I knew this run would turn out interesting when i woke up and saw that it had snowed and rained during my slumber. The devoted runner i am though (or psycho runner) would not let that deter me. Today was a short run anyways (it was either going to be 3 or 4 miles, i figured i would decide when i got out there).

So I hit the slushy pavement in full force. I’m not going to lie it was a tough 4 miles..this altitude is a killer and I had to keep stopping to catch my breath (it was either that or throw up and i didn’t think the people on the street would appreciate that)! I was glad when the run was done. I didn’t realize it when I was running but I guess I brought a little of the outdoors home with me..

and yes about half way through the run i realized that a white jacket was probably not the best choice for this run!

Here are some other fun pics of our trip so far..

  14. Hey nice muddy legs!!! So hardcore!! I am a runner in Wisconsin, and all I've been doing is running on the snowy salty streets this winter--very messy. I am so excited for spring running, even with the mud!!!
