To complete 174 miles in 7 days at elevation it’s important that your body do other things than running. Fortunately we live driving distance from the mountains and were able to get a beautiful afternoon of cross training. Here’s what I hope to be the start of many mountain training days.
While we are so not good on skis (especially the skinny ones) we sure had fun!
It’s snowing today, so here’s a cross country ski picture from a couple winters ago tahoedonnerassociation. So sad I only got to go once this year. Here’s to better fortunes and timing next season. #TahoeDonner #TahoeDonnerXC #crosscountry #crosscountryski #crosscountryskiing #xc #xcski #xcskiing #ski #skiing #snow #Tahoe #nature #Sierras #SierraNevada #TahoeLife #skidefond #California #GetOutside #PhotoOfTheDay #OutsideIsFree #Outdoors #nordic #nordicskiing #nordicbeard #nordicskiingadventure #winterwonderland...

Wood shop turned ski shop today. I’ve been using that fire hazard of an iron since I was a kid racing Nordic and waxing skis in a freezing horse stall at Tahoe Donner XC Ski Center. I think my Mom bought it for Paul and I at a thrift store in Tahoe. It’s always done the job just fine. #nordork #tahoedonnercrosscountry #tahoedonnerxc...
So great to have beautiful places to adventure and great friends to adventure with! mary.martha.morton We ran into just one dead end. And I realized that the skis don’t do great breaking trail in 2+ feet of powder 😂

Backcountry cross country skiing above Tahoe Donner. About a 600’ climb to open bowls and magical crust skiing through the forest. We did not see a single person in the back country #tahoedonner #tahoedonnerxc #xcskiing #truckee #backcountryxcskiing...

Drifter Hut along the Donner Rim trail. These pictures were taken 5 months apart at the same spot. Both required a 1500’ climb. Just below me by the end of the lake is our current house. #donnerlake #donnerrimtrail #tahoedonnerxc #truckeelove #truckee...

Glorious mornin’, once again!
Even better with my Beanie Girl👧🏻❤️!
She said yes to climbing up to Drifter Hut before we started, then I threw in the extra effort up to the Far Side....🤣🤣😜
She said she didn’t like it, but I know she WILL appreciate my extra push later in life!👍🏼
And happy my friend, dolan_marcy was up for the extra effort too when we crossed paths with her! #strongwomen

Come out and enjoy perfect winter conditions for all skier types and no crowds midweek at the Downhill Ski Resort and Cross Country Ski Center.

On vacation in Truckee, unusually low snow levels but a snow storm last night graced us with some ski friendly conditions. I have recently developed a reputation for skiing regardless of poor conditions and so far every adventure despite the challenges has been well worth it. Happy Sunday, hope you are finding the little things that light up your heart today 💗#holisticzenacupuncture #tahoedonnerxc #donnermemorialstatepark...

I didn’t take photos on the way down today but thought, “I can’t believe I live here” on the way up. #truckee #backyardskiing #skiing #truckeelove #extremesocialdistancing #tahoedonner #tahoedonnerxc #hawkspeak #safeandsane #mld_skishots...

Together with my Beanie Girl, this was Day 1 on the skate skis for the season. The trails were a bit SKETCH...but it’s better than nothing!
We probably should have hit the trails earlier than 4:15 PM, since daylight was dismal from the start🤦🏻♀️. At least we got out and made it back unscathed👍🏼😃!
Skiing downhill by braille on skinny ski’s with numerous ruts and dirt patches, well...enough said😆🤪!
Let’s keep snow dancing!
