Varied adventures in my shoes!
Sometimes photos speak enough....even though I am having a hard time trying to post in "order!"
On Saturday I met Matt and David Kirk and Brian B and Mohammed and Uwharrie for a run on the Woods Mtn trail between Marion and Linville, NC. Fabulous 20-22ish mile adventure! Thank you my friends for a most excellent morning of amazing trail running! My Hardrocks came along...
After running, I scrambled and drove back up the mountain to Ashe County for the 2nd annual Polar Plunge where we were raising money to assist those in our community who are having a hard time heating their homes, "freezin' for heat". We were encouraged to wear costumes-so I wore a disgarded prom dress and my Hardrocks (I didn't have time to really change too much after our run...and wanted to be sure I could run from the water to my dry clothes several hundred feet away! It was cold-sorta-air temp was around 40 and water temp in the low 30s. Very mild compared to what it has been like.
When I got home, I left my trusty footwear to dry on the deck and enjoyed a hot shower a couple glasses(generous) of homemade red!
Saturday was a GREAT DAY to be alive in Western North Carolina!
