From Brrr...mont to Brrr...soula

Aaah...  Four glorious days of sun, warmth and bare-legged and armed trail time at home in California.  Got in 30 wonderful miles on the PMSP trails before filling my luggage with tights (boo), jackets (boo), hats, mittens, woolies (boo, boo, and boo).  We are now in Missoula, Montana, where Chris is working for the next 2 weeks.  A foot of new snow fell within 24 hours of our arrival; then temps took a nosedive with subzero windchills.  Last night we attempted to run a few miles on one of the bike paths:  We made it exactly 10 steps into the blustery gale before doing an about-face back to our Subaru rental's heated seats, opting for the elliptical machines at the YMCA instead.  Hah!  Call us wimps, but we did notice that we were not the only ones there...

I do not mean to diss Missoula.  There seem to be some good eateries and breweries in town, and the landscape is lovely.  It would just be more enjoyable during the summer months.  However, the sun is shining brightly today, so we will try for another run this afternoon.

Today I created a page dedicated to my ongoing 50 Project.  For those who are interested, click on the link under the Coyote Two Moon logo.

Stay warm!

I think if I lived in Montana I might start liking treadmills too.
Keep warm.
