All good things must come to an end.
Too bad that isn't the case for winter....in terms of it being good, that is. As far as it ending, though, I am over-the-moon ecstatic. With the record-breaking low temps, non-stop wind, and ever-present ice, I have been stuck inside far more than ever before.
But, alas, Spring isn't too far away. We made it through the winter solstice, the days are markedly longer (and brighter), and there's all sorts of great things on the horizon. Shall we gather and chat about it? You grab your coffee (or tea) of choice, and I'll grab mine.
Here's what I'd share, if we were having coffee.....
First of all, in less than three weeks, Spring will officially be here. Can I get an amen? This winter has been the coldest and the craziest one I can remember. It's always cold in Iowa during the winter season, but usually there are intermittent periods of slight warming...you know, temps at or above freezing. Not this year. If it hasn't been snowing, the wind has been blowing (often at the same time, though).
|C'mon Spring, I'm ready for you|
|I gotta get out of this place!|
|Spring Break last year.....|
And, finally, some exciting news on the blog front....I'm teaming up with Deborah (from Confessions of a Mother Runner) to host the Weekly Run Down link-up. If you have a fitness-based blog, we'd love to have you join us! We'll open the link-up at 1:00 on Sundays, and it will remain open through Monday each week. Share your weekly fitness endeavors, training highlights or race recaps with us!
So, yeah, this summer-loving gal is ready to give Winter the boot (#badpun). A lot of friends keep reminding me that in a few months we'll be complaining about the heat...well, not this gal.
Anyways, let's march onward and get this soon-to-be-spring party started!
How do you feel about the new month? Anything exciting on your calendar? Spring training for summer races? Any Spring Break travels on the roster?
