Winners of Vi Endurance and a winter trail run

First:  the winners of the Vi Endurance gels:  RunKatie, Susette, and Jeff Gallup!  E-mail me your addresses and I'll get the info to Vi Endurance!  Congrats!  You will love them.  

I got to go to Salt Lake and run with my brother last Saturday.  We ran 12.5 miles with about 8 miles of trail.  The thing I love about my trails (little traffic) means that they're unrunable during the winter.  However, in Salt Lake, the trails get used a lot and are packed down well so it makes running the trails great.  It was a good test for my ankle which did well.  We did have a time where we lost track of the trail for a bit and tracked through some knee deep snow but otherwise it was great!  And even trudging through the snow was fun.  I had so much fun with my brother and it felt good to have a great run!






His wife made us banana nut pancakes afterwards with strawberries and eggs.  That may have been one of my highlights of the day!

Wahoo!!! So excited to try these out!! Thank you so much you cute little lady!! My email is scrapbooker1@msn.com I'm doing a 24 hour run in Moab next month and will experiment with them before I go. If they work great I for sure am bringing them along for my fun adventure.

Oh my goodness those trails are amazing! I am missing trail running so bad right now. Can't wait till it warms up a little bit. to get out there but you are proving that doesn't have to be the case. Good for you and you're so lucky to have a good buddy to go along with you. Wish I was closer and I would totally join you.

What a beautiful run! That looks so amazing. I did a little snow running today but nothing like that. What kind of shoes do you wear when it's like that?

I have trail envy. So gorgeous. You are lucky beyond words to have access to such magnificent trails. Can't find Vi in this neck of the woods. Might order some in from the company.

Absolutely beautiful scenery, but how in the heck did you stay warm?! I would have frozen to death. :-)

Those banana nut pancakes sound really yummy. I haven't made pancakes in a while and now I am craving them...

You're amazing'! I remember being in Colorado and not going around where I run because of the snow! Too caught up in my pace.

Those are some great pictures. Running the in the snow is a lot of fun, but that deep stuff can get exhausting.
