Runnin' in the snow and ice...

I was wanting to sleep in this morning... 

It doesn't work too well when you have kids up and ready to go at 7.

Oh, well... I decided to run with a local running group today at the Jordan River Trail at 8, so I needed to get up anyway.

My sister texted me and decided to meet me down there. We had 8 miles to do and we thought it'd be fun to do it together. She was running late so, we missed the group, but that's ok. 

We started out and had to climb a hill to cross the main street since the trail was flooded. 
 We got partway up the hill when Joy realized that she didn't lock her car. 

She ran all the way back to check and I waited.
It was COLD! I knew that when I warmed up I'd be fine.

Joy got back only to be upset that the car was locked the whole time. Oh well, It gave her an extra half mile to her run. Haha!

The run was a good one despite the snow and ice on the trail. 
We climbed a hill and the whole time Joy's yelling, "I LOVE HILLS! I LOVE HILLS!!" We made it up the hill with energy to spare. Yay!!

It was a nice run. We ran the second half a LOT faster than the first. I love when that happens. When we turned around and got back to the hill Joy says, "OK! No stopping! We've got this!" I think that hill was a lot longer on the way back, but we did it. We made it up the hill and finished our 8 miles nice and strong!

We've got this half. It's going to be a great race. 

Only 27 days!

Haha - I tried running around Daybreak lake in the ice and snow for 8 miles. We gave up after 2.75and just ran on the road for the rest of the run.
