We love to run. Most runners talk about running more than their professions and plan their weekends around when and where they are running. Does that make us obsessed? Maybe, but we are okay with that. The bad news is that no matter how invested we are in our sport our chances of being professional runners are slim to none. This means we must balance our time between family, work, friends and whatever else is on our plate with our need to run.
Winter running can seem like a game of tug-of-war. One side has your running goals and routine pulling for it while the other has frigid temperatures, shorter days, Netflix on the couch and beer by a fire pulling for it. To us, it doesn’t seem like a fair game. We decided we wanted it all. The only way to get it was to head out on a run trip filled with long runs taking in the beauty of winter, having beers around a fire and not feeling guilty for going to bed early because well, its dark outside and we ran hard. We loaded up the rnnr van and headed to Big Bear Lake, home to miles of trails, incredible mountain views and where cold temperatures make sense because there is fresh powder on the ground.
