Ummm spring?? Why does it look like this in my backyard right now? What’s that saying… April (snow) showers bring May flowers?
I told you the other day that as soon as I said it was starting to look like spring we’d get a snow storm! They had rain in the forecast for today, but then it never got above 34 degrees.
Today was supposed to be a 4 mile tempo run. Barry and I headed out to the trail this evening, but there was anywhere from 3-6 inches of snow on the trail so a tempo run definitely wasn’t going to happen. Our pace was slow today, but we got the 4 miles done. Judging by the fire in my calves during the run I know I was working hard. It is tough to run in the snow, especially when it’s deep! I’d say about 3/4th of the trail hadn’t been touched by anyone else, so we were making our own path the whole way.
I heard about this on the radio this morning and thought it was hilarious. This lady in Kingsport, TN decided to play an April Fool’s joke on her sister, so she called her on the phone and said she’d just shot her husband and needed her sister to come help her bury the body. Well instead of coming to help, the sister called the law and they swarmed the lady’s house. The funniest part is towards the end when she comments on the timely response of the law… and the interview with the neighbor.
People are crazy. I know a lot of people don’t like April Fools day, but I like the silly jokes and pranks that aren’t harmful or hurtful. However, I think this “April Fool” (as I’m nicknaming her) took things a little too far.

Anyone else have snow today???
Have you run in deep snow before? Did it wear your legs out like it did mine?
Do you ever do April Fools joke?
I used to do harmless funny ones, like putting a rubber band around the spray nozzle at the kitchen sink so that when you turned the faucet on you’d get sprayed. But I didn’t do anything this year.
