    The pooch and I got out and ran 4 miles of trail early before the ice turned to slop. Especially since I got my Kahtoola Microspikes, I'd rather run on the ice than in the slush.

      Morning!  My shin is acting up, so I'll take it easy today.  A couple of miles on the treadmill and a strength workout.   We are warming up here (unseasonably), so I'm looking forward to getting out into the woods tomorrow.

       

      qotd:  Any favorite treats/eats this holiday season?  I made some layered peppermint bark (with dark & white chocolate) and it turned out delicious!

       

      Have a good day, trailers!

        QOTD:  So hard to pick...  I love sweets and there are so many to choose from during the holiday season...

          Just got back from a job interview, I was offered the position and start after the

          holidays. (pending the background check). I'm stoked.

           

          Its very warm here, patio thermometer reads 59*, so I'm heading out in my shorts

          for an easy 6.

           

          QOTD: I used to love egg nog as a kid and rum balls, and lemon pie. My DW makes

          a mean baklava.

            I did a 20 mile tempo ride on my spin bike followed by a 5 mile trail run. The snow is deep and I desperately need some more people to get out and pound them down. It was a tough 5 miles.

             

            QOTD: Not really.

                TT: Got any tips for sizing on the Kahtoola's, I wear a size 11 trail shoe and it looks

                like 11 is on the cusp of Med/Lrg.

                  I'm stiff and sore this morning. I think it's from running 3 days in a row. I haven't done that in quite a while. Heading out for another 6+ miles on the road in a few minutes.

                   

                  Went to the airport last night to pick up DS. I'm glad this was the week he came home and not the past several weeks. Didn't have single flight delay anywhere.

                   

                  Jon - Congratulations on the new job.

                   

                  QOTD: I'm kind of like TT, there's almost too many sweets to pick from, but the one thing that I do grab first are the cookies with the small peanut butter cups in the middle.

                    Jon- I'm a 9 and wear medium. I feel like they would work up to a 10, but 11 seems like a Large to me.

                      That's was I leaning toward, time for a trip to Eastern Mountain Sports. Thanks for the tip and congrats.

                        Congratulations on the new job, Jon!  I'm guessing a celebratory pair of Kahtooolas are in order, right?

                          Absolutely! How else would a dedicated trail runner celebrate.

                            Congratulations Jon...good luck at passing that background check...I hope they don't do an internet search. 

                             

                            No run today..

                              Got in 8 snowy, icy, ankle turning miles with the wife on the Delaware Canal path. We then proceed to go to WaWa for a hoagie, chocolate milk, and soft pretzel. Tonight it's Delorenzo's Pizza followed by beer. I'm carb loading for something just not sure what yet. Can you say long run tomorrow!

                                Doing three miles and a little weights today. Need to stay fresh to ski 9 out of the 10 coming days :-)

                                 

                                QOTD: I love Christmas, and especially all the traditional Swedish treats:

                                 

                                Mulled red wine with cognac, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, almonds and raisins

                                Gingerbread cookies

                                Saffron buns

                                Two different kinds of caramel

                                Chocolate covered almond paste

                                 

                                If I ski all day and go to the gym in the evening I should be able to burn it off, no? :-0
