Mist above water.

They really are swift to vanish those white-tailed deers. I was taking a scenery picture on a road, switched off the camera, turned around, and there they were, five or six deers again, rising their heads and puff… disappeared into a forest. One day I’ll catch them with my camera!

It’s wise to regularly buy new running shoes. Every now and then, when I have run faster on hard surface, I have had some small hip problems. Well, this run was mostly on hard surface, I had a new pair of Asics Gel-Nimbus 12 running shoes, and hip pain disappeared during the run, literally!

Last Tuesday’s 21.1 kilometers was tough, because I run mostly in a snowy forest. Well, I thought I’ll run even tougher run by running more in a forest. Unfortunately it didn’t turn out to be so hard, so I run this 30 kilometers. And yes, it was hard. Really hard, but quite an experience.

Pros:
  • It's so fun to run along the paths in the woods covered with snow.
Cons:
  • It was getting dark towards the end, so I had to come out of the woods earlier than I planned.

This must have been the toughest 21 kilometers I have run. It felt pretty much like 30 kilometers, because majority of the route was trails in a snowy forest. But anyway, what a nice run!
