So today, I decided to ignore my running clinics advice and I went for a run. I was feeling rotten and was planning only a 2 mile loop. The route was so beautiful in the snow --snow is unusual for Vancouver -- that I popped back to the car and picked up my camera. I was of course forced to stop occasionally and take photo's.
The trail was quite deceptive. A few days of snow-> thaw->freeze->snow, meant that there was a thin layer of ice over all of the trail and then a light dusting of snow over the top. As the trail was rocky to start off with, this was an feat of bravery. I am so glad I am a minimalist runner as I am not sure I would have managed the two loops without proprioception. Barefoot runners are not perturbed by ice.
Ice just allows the run to be more fun. This trail was such a blast I am going to try and break myself tomorrow. ;)
Here are some of the photo's I took from my run. Enjoy them and let's hope the trail is as much fun when I go back tomorrow.
