River and ice

Beautiful afternoon run along the river going past downtown. I could have run further given the weather and how I felt but I needed to get home, unfortunately.

Clear pathways today along the river

No stairs today thank you very much. Leaving that for another more masochistic day.

Cityscape in late afternoon

 

Some days I wish the trail would never end. Sometimes this is because my audio book is so engaging that I have to keep running to get past a crucial point. Other times I just want to stay out there.
Happy winter running.

River run at sunset

The Bow River was beautiful this evening. But it was cold and I was glad to make it back without freezing any body parts. This late on a Sunday night meant the trail was very quiet.

Left behind when the coop flew south

From the lesser traveled trail by the river, I spotted where all the ducks and geese appear to go when it gets this cold (if they happened to miss the memo that it was time to fly south about 3 months ago). How do they survive? I have no idea.

The beautiful Bow River running out of the Rocky Mountains runs right past my house.

And this is from my bed this morning when even the sunrise couldn’t get me out of bed. The -21c before wind chill was the trump card to keep me in bed. The afternoon was not any warmer but at least my brain was in gear at that time.

Single track in the snow was in the cards today. Better than the treadmill any day (well most days).

Getting out there and having fun at it (and somewhat jealous of my friends taking holidays in warmer latitudes).
