Girl, look at that body

A little video to get you working out!

I am motivated today to get out and run by being on Orcas Island on my own little solo retreat.  Orcas Island is a wonderful place to run.  I like to stay at Doe Bay Resort because it is funky, cool and has hot tubs.  Nothing like getting out on the mountain for a snowy and hilly run then returning to their hot tubs and sauna!
On my way up Powerline trail.  I decided it wa time to tackle the rest of the Orcas Island 50k course, since I DNF'd on race day due to a sprained ankle. 
A lot of snow today!  More and lower elevation than I have seen it before. 

So I was having this nagging pain in the back of my knee (soft tissue related) every time I ran on the road. It's been going on for over a year. Since I mostly run on the trails, it hasn't been a big deal, more of a annoyance. Well, I picked up the new New Balance MT 110's at Fairhaven Runners and Walkers a week ago and guess what? No pain whatsoever running on the road. Amazing what happens when you find the right shoes for your body.
