Snowshoeing and Fudge S’more Cake

Happy Sunday Everyone!

My day stared off with this breakfast of Champions:

Mmm Mmm Mmm cheese omelette and maple veggie bacon.

After breakfast, Jenny picked me up and we went for a quick 6k run in the river valley. It was plus 5 and sunny a gorgeous day for a run. GOPR0124

We were pretty toasty afterwards so we grabbed some Vitamin water and then decided to rent some Snowshoes to prepare for  the upcoming Yeti Snowshoe Race in March.

  1. Oh my goodness, good luck with the Yeti Snow Shoe run, love the name! It is better than one we have in Tasmania this weekend called Convicts and Wenches! Why just run on the flat when you can do something out there? All the best J and T, can’t wait to hear about it.

  2. OMG! Snowshoe-running is tough! I went snow-shoeing one time and it was on a hiking trail. Luckily, there was somewhat of a beaten path where we went. If it was just a huge field like that, it would have been so tough! Glad you got a good workout :D

  3. Lovin’ the Fudge S’mores Cake part of the run! lol
    Snowshoes? Are you kidding me? I have enough trouble with my cross-country skis! And they stay on TOP of the snow where they belong….

    • In total agreement. Viewing this from the sunshine state (Florida). I love seeing how every one views running differently depending on where they live! I would like to try snow-shoeing some day! Sounds exciting (and crazy)! We runners are a little crazy though for sure! :)
