Sadly, Sagey pup as still in rehab from her dew claw removal and has not had the excitement of running in the hills like I have. The sunshine has been shining down on my foot and I have been loving getting out to play in the mountains above the Avenues and in Ogden. Although I do not feel like I could race a marathon right now, I have retained most of my endurance and have found that my foot and spring were worth the wait! As a precursor to Hidden Peak Happy Hour, as first popularized by Lindsay and Ryan Lauck, a few of us decided to run to the closest peak from our house before dark. It was a great first ascent of the season with the best of friends.
The HUMR group also had a great St. Patrick's Day run on Saturday. Distances from 4-13 miles were covered, everyone in green, and a leprechaun even hid some HUMR PBR's on the trail! Sticking with HUMR style we hung out at the trailhead until afternoon, with snacks, beverages, and friends! What a great group of people!

Last weekend was awesome! Even without running tons of miles!! I was still up in the mountains...this time relearning how to ski after a 16 year snowboarding hiatus. And what do you know, my 12 year old self was tearing up The Canyons by the third run. This was Saturday: suntans, Smith sunnies, Euros and spring skiing galore!
How could anyone beat an epic Saturday ski day? A pain free two mile run in the freezing rain Sunday morning! Yea baby! Let's be honest, the pace was tentative, I couldn't feel my hands and it was only two miles, but to be pain free was pretty cool!! I have to tell you that my new Pearl Izumi Elite Barrier Convertible Jacket was awesome, too. I even took a picture of the water beading when I got home. This jacket is slick with its zip off sleeves. With the sleeves on, there is ventilation on the back to keep ypu from over heating.
