Jan 24

The weather is warming up this week but we still had a pretty cold run Saturday morning.  After the run I was really thinking that maybe the ThermaJock idea has some real merit.  Either that or I need to get started on my Wooly Mammoth invention.

Boise Greenbelt Trail We set out from Shoreline and headed towards Barber Park.  One of our usual runs and today we were going for 12 miles.  The run was fairly uneventful except for the large group that we had that morning and the slick running conditions.  We started off with 8 of us running and there were still more that didn’t make it.  The big highlight of the run was seeing two deer cross the path about 30 feet in front of us.  Always cool to see wild life while on the run.  Usually it happens in the foothills but quite often we see deer on the Boise Greenbelt.

The fog was thick in the morning making the first and last three miles of our out and back run a bit sketchy.  The trails were extremely slick with black ice.  Once we hit the dirt trail it was great.  We were hoping it would melt off a bit before we came back but nooooo.

We’re training for the Ogden Marathon again which has been one of our groups favorites for a couple of years now.  We probably would have done a different one except there was a slight miscommunication between a few of us.  My wife and I, along with a couple of friends, are thinking about doing the Maui Half Marathon in September.  No special reason for this one except we figured we could do a race here while on vacation.  Not sure if we’ll make it but so far that is our plan.

After my run Saturday I saw all sorts of people out walking and running on the way home and through my neighborhood.  The weather here is expected to be in the mid to upper 40s all week.  Not too shabby.

Thanks for the photo Karen.
