Today I was back at it, snowshoeing at Oakley Corners in the town of Owego, NY. I decided to bring the mutt with me. Ruff is a rescue, a mix of a Brittany Spaniel and English Setter. We’ve had him for several years now and he loves the snow.

I met up with friends Jim, Gwen, Chris and Chris’s dog Ruby. Conditions are still prime here for XC skiing and snowshoeing and the temperature wasn’t to bad at 19 degrees. Our hike took us around the perimeter following the yellow trail for 3.46 miles.

This has been a nice break from running and some great winter cross training in my opinion. Hopefully this coming Saturday I will get my older son Michael out snowshoeing before the real frigid temperatures arrive come Sunday.

All in all another great day here in the beautiful Southern Tier of New York!
