Great Ski at Eklutna Lake

What a beautiful day! I met Diane up at Eklutna Lake and we skied the Lakeside Trail. I was so pleased because I was able to hold onto my ski pole and actually use it this time. Such an improvement over last week.  At least it shows I am making progress. We went almost 4 miles too.  I can't wait to go again!

I signed up for the Mainly Marathons Prairie Series which includes 7 states, 7 marathons and 7 days in July. It gives me 5 states that I don't have and does repeat North & South Dakota. The races are in July so I'm sure I'll be fine for running by then.  Plus I have two others before that. I'm considering driving down for that trip.  Maybe i'll even take my kitty, Daisy with me.

First Ski!

I finally tried cross country skiing.  It wasn't too bad.  I went with Diane up at Campbell Airstrip Trail. We only went a couple of miles. I found that I wasn't able to hold onto the ski pole very well.  I couldn't reach high enough to hold it at the top either. I mostly just let it drag. But it was great to get out in the snow and back on skis.

Menard Center

I'm still running indoors at the Menard Center.  Another day another 5 miles. I really don't have enough time for more miles. But maybe later this month I can pick up the distance. For now, 5 is great.
