What HAVE I Been Up To?

Posted Feb 16 2014 6:44pm

So hey there!

I know, I know, I haven’t blogged in a while.  I have been busy with work and life and really haven’t had a lot of time.

There have been some challenges in me trying to get a race schedule lined up.  The latest is I planned a pretty major race for the end of May but I just got some awesome family news that happens to fall on the race date – I am excited that I will be celebrating with the family instead.

But that means that race is out the window…and I am hesitant to sign up for anything else.  Because of this, I haven’t been specifically training, I find I need to have a specific goal to push me to do regimented training.

It isn’t like I am falling apart.  I mean, my job requires me to be on my feet all day walking in the woods in deep snow, and travel gorgeous woods roads like this:

On the weekends I run around in the woods with this guy:

Maine, snowshoe, caratunk, dog, bernese mountain dog

Actually I am lucky enough to take him to work with me most days, but on the weekends we play instead of work.  I get to go where I want to go.  That makes it way more fun.

People often ask me why do I spend so much time outside on the weekends, since I am outside all week at work.  That is a fair question.

I guess I just can’t help it, I am an outside kid.

This weekend Porter and I broke the trail up to Pleasant Pond Mountain – a hike I do often in the summer and fall.  This time it was a real workout because there was snow up to my knees the whole way.  Porter let me break trail for him.  It is steep in places but it is gorgeous!

So that is what I have been up to.

I am super thankful to have some amazing sponsors this year, and my next post will be all about them!

Thanks for reading!

Mandy
