Light! Weather! Action!

So last Monday we got dumped with about 5 inches of snow and by Saturday, I was sporting capri pants and flip flops, got to love this weather! Dave and I had a great weekend and I made it back in time to get a nice run in before the sunset.  Its the first day of daylight savings and I’m lovin’ it! It’s so nice when you are able to enjoy the end of the day after work, whether its going for a run or grilling outside. 

I hope the good weather stays around for awhile.



It’s a rainy spring night with a thunderstorm rolling in. I love nights like these, sleeping is so peaceful! I have a love/hate relationship with thunderstorms. The thunder and lightening really freak me out, but yet the sound of the thunder and the bolts of lightening are so amazing that I’m cautiously glued to the window instead of hiding under my covers.

And of course after months of waiting, I finally got my Jeep washed this morning, the one day it rains!

So I’ve been busy at work, busy planning my crazy summer, and busy trying to get back into the whole running thing. This summer is going to be nuts beginning next weekend. I’m visiting family, going on a camping trip, going to 4 weddings, throw in a concert or two and maybe a beach weekend. My weekends already involve a lot of traveling along good old 95, so it’s going to be really crazy! Of course, it’s going to be a lot of fun. I get to see family, friends I haven’t seen in awhile, travel to new places, so all the craziness will be well worth it!

I also want to run another half marathon (or two!) this fall which means I need to train a lot this summer. I think I can easily improve my time. Of course after a few half marathons, I’m going to really get the itch to run a marathon and it would be awesome to one day qualify to run the Boston. That’s such a HUGE goal to try and achieve, so needless to say, I need to hit the pavement a lot!

Well, there is a thunderstorm going on, so I’m thinking safety first, and shutting down my computer.
