Running trails so much more invigorating I think!
Northern AZ has its share and at 7,000+ in elevation, and sunny with no wind, it's INCREDIBLE!
WAY TO GO!
I wish we had elivation here, my XC team goes up to mamoth every year to get some elivation training in, the cut to go on that trip was 5:00 in the mile this year. I ran a....4:59.63!!!!!!
5:30 am, 4 or so miles along Clear Creek west of Denver. It was 18 deg American, or 8 below in the rest of the world . Fresh snow, and a light breeze, and a 3/4 moon, and what a beautifully cold winter morning! Saw a dog walker; and nobody else.
To anyone having trouble with motivation, I suggest signing up for a run so you'll have something to train for. That's what I needed to do. Just run a winter 5K, or many places have a winter series. Winter running is a blast!
Ran 4 miles today to pick up my 1/2 marathon race packet for the run on Saturday, just to learn its been postponed a week due to weather.

Silentstrider - Which race was it? That could be a problem for people coming in from out of town! OTOH, if the weather is going to really be bad, you might be glad of the postponement.
