So all the practical runners are now running
boring subdivion routes to avoid those snowy & slick trails. While I certainly understand the practicality of that decision, I still long for the beauty and tranquility of the tree-lined trails. So Aurelia was brave enough to give it a go with me yesterday on the trails near Yankee Woods. Me & Aurelia:
But we didn’t make it very far. We struggled thru deep snow for less than a mile before pulling out and hitting the roads. It was beautiful even though short-lived and
it sucks that of course, practicality always wins.
We stopped so that I could remove the YakTraks, which were great in the snow, then off to traverse new and unexplored neighborhoods. It was windy and cold at 22 degrees but the neighborhood homes did provide a wind break and we muddled thru for a slow 10.04 miles. I’m pretty sure that I was holding Aurelia back
as my quads are fatigued from some new activities and it was slow going for me but she was kind about it. Thanks, Aurelia!
And then my lil man turned into a sleepy, feverish sickie. He still isn’t better. I’m currently awaiting the meds to wear off to see if he needs to visit the doc. Love my lil man and totally don’t want him to be sick, ever if it does mean extra cuddles and love for Mommy TooTall.
