So, with the bit of fresh snow, we got out for a snowshoe on New Year's day. The good thing about snowshoeing is it's something we can do together during the winter with Lil' D (I'm now referring to my daughter as "Lil' D", 'cause it seems that everyone in blogger land refers to their children by nicknames). It was a short hike, just an hour, at some trails near our place. Funny thing is, I actually felt a little out of shape trudging through the snow, but I did have a little extra weight on me:

On another note, I figured out my 2009 mileage. I didn't get in any more commutes this year, due to the frickin' cold weather we had last week combined with Sonia not needing the car. So here's my tally for 2009:
Road bike: 4718 km
Mountain Bike: 940km*
*These are approximate numbers.
Total: 12 597km. Might as well just round up to 12 600km.
So there you have it, 12 600km in 2009. In all honesty, I think that's about the same mileage that we put on our car this year. I don't think I'll hit the same numbers in 2010, (more on that in another post in a few days), but it should be a good year...I'm already looking ahead at what races I want to do (more on that in a few days, too), and I'll be getting some good resistance training in once I hook up a trailer to my bike, just in time for cross season (yes, I'm thinking that far ahead!!).
