the new bunny on the block

According to Facebook, it snowed in Calgary yesterday. Oh so sucky…

It is technically still summer and even though I taught my son to say “in Summer, we do NOT talk about winter”, I feel the need to start planning my new ski wardrobe. Yes, ski wardrobe. If I am going to hit the slopes, I am going to dress for it. My top requirement is warmth but I don’t want to look like a rent-a-rebel so here’s some stuff I’ve found online: Ski

Hopefully a trip to the States in the fall will land me to a pair of skis. My current pair are about twenty years old, long and straight – you know, the kind you’d see on a vintage travel poster… Anyway, I already have a jacket, ski pants and helmet but it is still fun to shop around. d13dc0547b6be2b117f51b4c554d5fa6

I think I am mostly excited about skiing because I am going through a bit of runner’s fatigue. A lot of long lonely runs have worn me out so once my races are over, I should be more positive about layering up.

How about you? Any big plans to deal with winter?

head smart

Hello sunshine … hello … hello? Are you there?

For anyone like me, who lives for summer warmth, this has been one long painful spring (can we please turn off the thermostat!). If summer does make an appearance, it is good to be ready and head smart. No more burnt heads people! I found some hats online to fit every occasion, including a hoedown.
