Weekend: Wilderness Running

A friend, EH, invited roommate CA and I to hit the snowy trails for a run with her and her puppy. I was so thankful for an excuse to get out of downtown Juneau and out in the woods. We spent an hour running on the Herbert Glacier Trail (28 miles out of town). It was 4.5 miles to the glacier but we only made it about half way there. The snow-covered ground was really uneven ice and that made for some treacherous running conditions. I clearly need to invest in some long, running tights (somehow since living in California I only have capri-length pants) and spikes for my running shoes.

Juneau is surrounded by mountains and this is our spectacular view as we drove back to town.
