With a few inches of snow on the ground and temperatures hovering around zero it is clear that winter has settled in to the Northern Rockies. As such, I have pulled out the Ice Bugs and the multiple layers to go along with the headlamp as I confront the lonely early morning training runs of the next few months.
It's all about base-building at this time of year anyway and there's something that tells me running with frozen eyelashes builds character. That said, I must admit, it takes three cups of coffee to get me out the door in December. I'm already looking forward to my trips to SF, NM, Texas and CA over the next few months to give me a bit of a reprieve from the cold and the ice. But, I'm also prepared to embrace winter and get out to carve some turns, ski the track and, of course, enjoy those PBR's!
