1st day of Spring!

Thursday, March 20, 2014

Well, it is the first day of Spring and we just had new snowfall to add to what hadn't started to melt yet. UGH!
I have a 5k scheduled for April 12th, and then Race for the Cure May 11th! They are coming up fast and I can't get out to train. My road conditions go from slush to mud to ice to ankle-deep water. I don't want to risk breaking a leg while getting ready for 5k's. Its such a quandary.
SPRING!! I do love Spring! My birthday is in the Spring! The birds come back, the leaves and grass grow and turn green, the lake melts, we get the dock in, the the boat!
This weekend high is predicted at 26-28 degrees. Sunshine, but cold.
I find myself even looking forward to 50's and rain. Anything besides this snow and ice. I know I live in Minnesota, but we have had severe cold and snow since late November. I did not get a chance to escape this winter and it is really wearing on me, and several others I know. SAD is a real thing, and boy am I feeling it!
Light at the end of the tunnel! Spring is here! For the temps -- nowhere to go but UP!
Even if it is cold. I'm taking 3 days off for Spring Cleaning!!

    I understand. I'm fearing the morning ice when the afternoon melts. I think they lied to us about the highs for the weekend. It will come eventually! I do see the fire hydrants again!

    I am so glad spring is here, at least according to the calendar.

    As a Minnesotan who has been in Phoenix since the end of Jan. I am not looking forward to returning to the mounds of snowbanks still there. This is the first time we have gotten away for a couple of winter months, I think our timing was all we hoped for. Will be starting the drive back the end of March. Happy spring to you---it will get better, it has too eventually.

    I hear you, I am from Chicago and I had not run outside since the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving. I have run outside 3 times so far since we've had a break in the weather - twice with my running class and a 5k last Saturday. I have an 8k this Sunday but it will be chilly again, but hopefully dry conditions. Good luck with your training and your races!
