Last Chance Trail Run

I learned today that running in snow is hard. It's a lot like running on sand, but with the added danger of frost bite and black ice. We did the Last Chance Trail Run and Pancake Breakfast in Fabius, NY. Runners will do the craziest things: we paid $5 to wake up at 7 am on a Saturday, drive an hour, and run at below 20F temperatures uphill in the snow. I swear though that pancakes have never tasted so delicious. Michelle and I ran 4 miles (~55 minutes), and Ben, Gretchen, Cresten, and Aaron (B&G's friend) ran 6 miles. Afterward we all enjoyed mickey mouse chocolate chip pancakes in the ski lodge where the run started.
