The Wild Oak Trail is my very favorite trail. The way she wears winter is magical.

A snowy day on Little Bald
And even more snow on Big Bald
At the top of Little Bald
We could have used snowshoes.
A wonderfully wintery day on the TWOT trail. 28 miles, 8100 feet of climbing…happy, happy trails.
My favorite spot – on the climb up Little Bald

A VHTRC Fat Ass run on Black Friday every year. This year was a blue sky, sunshine, SNOWY adventure.

A snowy Skyline Drive

The Boyer’s Furnace Fat Ass was held on a beautiful Saturday in late December. Blue skies, sunshine and temps in the 60’s made this challenging 40 miler even more of a treat.

My Tribe – the VHTRC at Vermont 100
A few scenes from my 100 mile runs this year…winter TWOT (a DNF, 3 loops, 81 miles), MMT, Vermont and Grindstone. What a wonderful year of running and friends. Run happy!
Winter TWOT – February 2014
Winter TWOT – a cold, snowy and icy journey that ended after 3 loops and 81 miles – and a cranky IT band
MMT 100 – May 2014 – this picture pretty much sums up the trail conditions
MMT 100 – I had a blast running the orange trail! A fabulous weekend in the Massanutten mountains with the VHTRC!
Vermont roads are really, really hard. This 100 was a “one and done” for me.
Vermont 100 – The Sound of Music hill
Grindstone 100 – October 2014 – so happy to be back on my rocky, technical, mountainous trails. My favorite 100 of the year.
A snowy run during the Polar Vortex. Animal tracks, deer beds and lots of snow made for an interesting and fun climb up the mountain and a fast, ski-like descent back down!

Virginia Happy Trails Running Club MMT training run – a cold and snowy run in the Massanuttens. Beautiful views, frosty temperatures, good friends on trail…a fun day!
