My Mount Snow 1/2 marathon

Steve & Schuyler were with the Alpine Comp Team and doing dry land training on Sunday morning, so I decided to get a long run in. After heading down Handle Road with the snow guns blazing on the hill, I ran in the slush and snow on the side of the road, wandering to the middle whenever possible. I passed a couple of J5 Dads headed back to the lodge and I kept on going down Handle, taking advantage of the glorious day. Once I hit 5 miles I thought I would try and loop around to 100 and took the first road that looked like it may go over the mountain / trees, with no luck. I asked a passing snowmobiler what is the best route to get to 100 and after he looked at me as if I was crazy gave me direction to go back on the road and stay there (or find Cold Brook) –so I did …. Then I headed back to Mount Snow on Rte 100 – which wasn’t so bad (thinking traffic and no shoulder) – because it was flat and entertaining — I looked at all the shops, the restaurants and the houses for sale, dreaming of settling more in that are for a ski home / weekends / vacations. What a beautiful area — I love Vermont as it reminds me of my childhood, my family and the friends I have made here.

So the last uphill was a challenge getting out past Two Tannery Restaurant (remember going there a couple years ago with Steve and Kat’s family before Big Bad Voodoo Daddy) – and then back on Handle to the base lodge. I love my Garmin 405 – it kept me motivated to run faster, keeping a good pace the whole way. I ran a 1:52 1/2 marathon (13.3 miles – so it was a little more) — which ain’t so bad for a training run. Hope to keep getting runs in up at Mount Snow – it will be great training for Boston 2010!
