The snow was so deep during Dawn’s Nose Creek race that I lost my balance and fell off the path. It was a soft landing and I laughed so hard it was difficult to extract myself from the drift and resume the race.
For the first time in several years of running this event, I opted to run the 4k instead of the 8k distance. The terrain was challenging enough for one loop, thanks. I just didn’t muster the discipline to make myself run it twice this time.
Check out more photos of the race, including another one of Carla and I, taken just before I fell over.
For the knitting record, I knitted the hat and mitts over Christmas. The hat pattern was designed by a knitting runner. My mom helped me knit the mitts with a pattern she had handy (pardon the pun, ha!).
I’m still picking out burrs from the mitts. I grabbed at some of the prairie vegetation in a couple of points, to help me up one very steep hill. There oughta be a way to use that natural velcro for good.
