PJ's Run was originally created in 2006 to document the training for and tackling of my dream run from Boulder, Colorado to Petoskey, Michigan: 1400 miles, 6 states, and 57 days on the road from June 6 to August 1, 2007. Since then, I continued to post occasionally with a focus on my running endeavors sprinkled with other bits and pieces of life. Fast forward to January, 2016 and my new Quest! To run a trail in every state. More adventures to write about in PJ's Run!

Looking for winter
Little Traverse Bay from one of my favorite running trails (xc skis might have been the wiser choice over my runnin' shoes)
Last week I ran in shorts every day that I started my run after the sun was up. Being December, I thought that was a bit ridiculous. Then on Sunday my husband and I made a spur-of-the-moment trip to Petoskey - and found winter. We flew into Flint (in southeast Michigan) and drove through a blizzard to Petoskey (northwest Michigan). I've been running in breezy, snowy, chilly (way chilly) weather ever since. But as a good friend has said many times, there is no such thing as weather too bad to run in, there's just inadequate clothing. Three cheers for many many layers, and a winter wonderland!
