Pre-party, I went for a long run on the back roads of VT.


I went for a great long run yesterday. 11 miles in 1:29 outside in the snow and sunshine!IMG_0969 I used my new Saucony Ride 5 and I love them! They provide a little bit more support and cushion for my longer runs so I hopefully stay healthy and strong throughout my training.


My run was cold and snowy but it was beautiful and sunny outside. I dressed warm layers of Saucony apparel, a Skida hat, Oakley sunglasses to help with the glare of the sun off the snow. IMG_0970

My run was super hilly for the first 5.5 miles, and then downhill the rest of the run. My quads were burning from running downhill so much, I was looking forward to it flatting out or even going up hill. Even though the run had a lot of terrain, I felt great the whole time. I iced my knees and stretched post-run and today I feel like I could go out and run another 11 miles!

Merry Christmas EVE!!!! I hope everyone has a safe, happy, joyful Christmas!
