Snow. And no long run.

Big Winter storm hit Tucson this week.

So, the TTR Sabino Canyon run was called off. Then the 20 mile training run for OP 50 was called off. What's a gal to do?

Sleep in. Run a little over 8 miles at noon time with my dog Taos on the Rillito. I love this dog! She doesn't pull as much anymore when we run - plus I try to run faster! The sun sure felt good.

We took a little detour off on the 'Coyote trail'. 

Kept checking out the snow covered Catalina mountains. I also spent a lot of time with friends today, which was healing.
Now THAT'S a day off.

Sounds like you had the perfect plan for the day! I am surprised the TTR group called off the run b/c of a little dusting of snow!!! Just teasing . . . It looks like it ended up being a beautiful day!

Actually, Kathleen, it was the rain and snowmelt which created too much water in the creeks that caused the runs to be cancelled. I guess some people did the runs anyway and waded through the ice cold water...Brrr....
