Training through a snowy winter

We are in the midst of a real winter here in Utah, and as much as it hampers any efforts to ride bikes, I am enjoying it. I have always liked the stark contrast of four distinct seasons. Growing up in Vermont, it sometimes seemed like we would skip spring, and here in Utah the past couple years it seems like we have skipped winter. To me Christmas isn't quite the same without snow on the ground, and Mother Nature came through on December 24, dumping a good amount of snow in the city and covering up our brown lawns. Sammi and I made the most of the White Christmas and went on an early morning cross-country ski before going over to her parents' house for presents and breakfast. Then we went to Solitude for a few runs at the resort in the afternoon.
