Fun in the snow

We had a great time snowboarding, as usual. And I posted this picture to show that even at 47 you can still wear pigtails. What's funny about this is that when I was 40, a friend suggested that I wear pigtails to some event we were going to -- I can't even remember what it was. But I told her that I was far too old for pigtails. Yeah, and now, seven years later, I'm sportin' 'em with pride!

One of these days I'll get some pictures of the kids snowboarding. They are strong, coordinated and so fun to watch. But they are not the only ones who rock on a snowboard. Here's Tim coming down the slopes. It's like buttah! (Note -- I've now tried like 5 times to upload the video, but Blogger is not cooperating. I'll try again tomorrow.)

In other news, the 10 mile run happened yesterday -- hooray! I find it goes something like this:
Mile 1 -- Yuck. Why do I do this?
Miles 2 - 3 -- I guess this is ok.
Miles 4 - 8 -- This is fun -- difficult fun, but fun!
Mile 9 -- It's almost over, right?
Mile 10 -- Why do I do this?
Then about an hour later, once I'm cooled down and showered and having a well-deserved post run meal, I feel on top of the world. And somehow, understanding the process helps to keep me coming back for more.

Love the pigtails! I'll have to give them a try. I give them to my daughter several times a week, she'd love it if I had them too.

My runs are similar, only shorter - way shorter.
