The snow continued overnight, the biggest fall of the season so far. We waited and waited, and now there is almost too much. The sudden snow depth has raised the avalanche risk, and the coming days will be dangerous in the mountains until it settles, so we continue to be patient and weigh our options. With the chains on the wheels, we were able to drive to the Jura. We broke trail up to the high cow pastures, gradual at first, but then zig-zagging steeper. We had a great climb in the Jura, making tracks in the untouched snow, and weaving our way back down through the trees.

After nearly four months of trying to keep my sanity without regular running, I finally visited a sports specialist and got the okay to resume running...although limited in distance, frequency, and elevation gain through the winter. He prescribed adding variety in my training, especially xc skiing and randonee. I'm not a huge fan of the stationary bike or swimming, so a little more snow would help me out with the winter sports.
I went for a run immediately from leaving the office.
I'll need to be patient to regain my speed and endurance, but for now it feels so good to go!
