Back on track and spring is coming!

This week I have finally started to get back on track with running regularly. And by that I mean I ran Wednesday and yesterday. But hey, it’s a start. I wasn’t feeling well on Monday or Tuesday, but Wednesday morning I felt better and got in 3 miles in the morning on the treadmill. Thursday evening I was once again relegated to the treadmill due to the inch of ice we got during the day. So I hung out with ‘Sven’ for 5 miles. I’m so glad I’m finally healthy and able to run, because I feel so much more like myself (I’ve basically been sick with a cold and/or sinus infection on and off since September). It’s going to take some hard work to get back into shape, though.

Ice on the deck. The road looked the same.

I have an announcement to make about a new addition to our family (no, I’m not pregnant and we’re not expanding the zoo). After much deliberation, I decided I had grown tired of the wilds of Android and punched my ticket to the land of Apple. And by that I mean I crossed over to the dark (possibly better) side and the world of iPhones earlier this week. I’ve got a bit of a learning curve, but I already like it better. Plus it’s pretty 🙂

I’m excited the weekend is finally here for a few reasons. First, I have a long run date with Kim tomorrow morning (who is expecting her second baby, and is right a the end of her first trimester!!). Secondly, a bunch of my college friends are coming to town to celebrate another friend’s birthday. It’s so much fun when we all get together again! And third spring forward is this weekend. A lot of people grumble about losing an hour of sleep, but I loooove the extra daylight in the evening. Spring is officially only two weeks away!

Okay Apple heads – tell me your tips and secrets for the iPhone!
Spring forward: yay or nay?

  1. Sounds like things are looking up! Very nice 🙂

    And I say a big “Nay!!!” to spring forward. I like to run outside in the morning, and it was JUST starting to get light during my runs. Back to running in the pitch black for me 😦

    Eventually, I will be okay with it, but not until I get some light for my morning runs again.

    I am a big fan of spring, though!

    1. Yea, I guess for a morning runner spring forward isn’t such a good thing. Running in the morning in the dark definitely gives you bragging rights, though!

  2. Love the time change. I hate those times of the year where I go to work and come home in the dark. I guess I get a little SADD.

    Don’t know what to tell you about the iPhone. I hope it all goes well for you.


  3. My heart is breaking as I read this, and see how excited you were for the weekend. I hope you were able to get out and run with Kim this morning. If not, please try to schedule a run with her soon (and take Barry with you). After I lost my dad, running was the best therapy. Think of Sara with every step you take, and please give Barry a hug for me.

    1. Thank you, Deb. I was able to get out and run with Kim, and it definitely helped me process everything to talk to her while running. Some things are easier to think about and handle while running. Barry wanted to go to work, so that is what he did today. We are heading back down to Bristol later today.

  4. Yay for a new phone and yay for being back on track! This was my first week “back” too, and by “back” I didn’t really go anywhere except to laziness. LOL Hopefully we can both keep rolling through all of March!
