Being on our third day of skiing, we decided to ski right at our resort. That left us more time to hang out in the morning, but more importantly, go for a morning run!  I was a little concerned because the temperature said -2 with a “feels like” temp of -15!  Normally I would say “h@ll no!” to running outside at that temp, but this was a beautiful location so we had to get out there and do it. 

The high altitude practically killed me!  It was really exhausting, and it was  really cold out, but definitely worth it!  We ran 5 miles, which felt like they were all uphill miles.  But look at this view!!

After running we had a hearty breakfast and then hit the slopes of Keystone.  It was a good time like usual. At Keystone they have a kids fort at the top of the mountain. Really cool!

Since we are skiing at our resort, we had lunch in our condo. I barely got off the couch after eating!  Luckily I resisted the temptation to nap, and after I got back out there I felt energized. 

We hit some big and little jumps. 

Dinner, hot tubbing, and some hydrating with Hi-C. Excellent day :)

Q: have you ever had altitude sickness?

A: not really, but I have had some dull headaches that are probably related to the altitude. I need to drink more water on this trip!!

    1. Oh wow, heat exhaustion! I don’t think I’ve ever had that. I’ll have to catch up on your blog while waiting for my plane today 🙂
