Forecast: Snow, with a chance of well, snow!

Argh!  What do you do when you are supposed to swim, bike and run when there is 18+ inches of snow on the ground?  SNOW SHOE!  I came home to Seattle for a nice break to relax and recharge before getting back to Nashville to hit it hard for the next six months of training.  The weather was frightful and it snowed 5 of the 8 days I was home.  I didn't want to turn into a lard ass, so Meghan and I decided to partake in our annual winter wonderland tradition...snow shoeing.  

It was a beautiful day...yes, it was overcast, cold and snowy, but any day you can get out and be in the mountains with your best friend is a truly beautiful day!  

Meghan and I logged approx 6 miles and 3,000 feet of elevation.  She and I love getting out in the woods and getting dirty...we always have the best time, even if we are a little hungover from being over served! 

Check out my sweet snow shoes...yay!

"Running" in the snow...we did more trekking than running.
