We are forecast for 1-2 feet of snow tonight and it has begun. Shaun (one of my athletes who just PR'd in the half marathon by 22 minutes) and Ghostfeather are possibly sticking pins in a Lucho doll tonight... but I am super psyched for this. The two pictures below were taken 30:00 apart and the snow continues to fall harder by the minute. Like an 8 year old hearing the potential for a snow day I have been feverishly mapping an epic run route for tomorrow. I had planned on 35 miles down on the flats but with the potential for a huge snow dump I will shoot for 35 miles up here in the snow.
The tire in the picture is bolted to a big log and it's been my core workout for the past month... I beat the crap out of it with an 8 pound sledge hammer. I can go to town on it for several minutes straight now before losing my grip on the sledge. When I started it only took about a minute before I would drop it. It sounds goofy but if you try it you might change your mind.
