MMmmmmm, Mammoth

I was trying to remember the last time i drove in snow. Maybe some ill-fated winter day up in Forest Falls. but what i do know is that my high level of loathing for the white stuff has vanished. Maybe its because while living up there the house was 44 degrees and i would find myself defreezing the pipes outside with a blow torch more mornings than should be legal.

Mammoth, was a blast.

Yes, they (like my MOM - rude) used to call me Butter Ball - i used to eat butter, plain. Yummmmmm....

Getting meal number one on the table...


The Table: Brian, me, Jesse and Shelli (their an item...), Steve, Staci - Shelli's sis and Dave


The view out the window. Since i am obsessed with hardship, i ventured out on a run once everyone had left. Since I DO NOT OWN PANTS....i only had running knickers. awesome. But i wore the tallest socks i own and lathered my legs with Hot Stuff, so it wasn't that bad.
I will probably never again have the option for this shot. 56 minutes of straight running while it was snowing. I loved it! Once i got back Condo-side, i set up the trainer, watched Ride for 24, and had some high quality saddle time.
But at one point my clear lense in my Haber glasses straight up POPPED OUT into the middle of the snowy road. I looked left and right. Trucks coming both ways. I spotted the lense by a glint of light from the sun and darted out into traffic and snagged it up before it could get crushed or lost in the snow. Phew...

Staci doing her thang'. This is about all i could have done myself...
The crew getting ready to play. You can tell by my tshirt i was playing House Wife - i stayed in sunday to clean the condo and take care of all the food.

I suppose i could have put some boots on and gone outside to help Brian. Nah...
BTW - although that LOOKS like my car, it's Shelli's. I know, i know. We both have Subaru's, race bikes and hang out all the time. We get made fun of all the time.

They said they got pretty cold out there...

Upon my return, i hit up Smiley for three trips of top secret training. This place ain't that bad after all!!
