Happy New Year

Hilary post run with Conrad in Canandaigua Lake, NY

Happy 2010. I just spent an amazing 13 days in North Western New York, in the “Finger Lakes” Region on Canandaigua Lake. Each day  I ran a gentle 6 miles over the rolling hills. But today, New Years Day, was the best and most beautiful of them all,  12 miles over ungroomed snowy trails. The run is part of a semi defunct rail trail system. Based on my experience no one has walked, skied, or run the path since it was made. I was  alone in the woods surrounded by frozen ponds and hills. What could be better?  When I finished my run back to the cottage I jumped in the lake to sooth my quickly tightening muscles. It was too cold for the dogs to get in and I did not truly experience how cold it was until I was a little more striped down indoors. My tights were freezing on my legs as I walked out of the water. Here is the goofy video of it for you. Wishing everyone a joyful and healthy new year.
