Happy First Day Of Spring!!

Hahaha flowers like that don’t bloom this time of year here in the Midwest. I just really like this photo (I took it during our family vacation in Florida last July). There are a bunch of daffodils popping up around my neighborhood though, and some of them have started to bloom!

Anyway, we are starting to get some spring-like weather in my part of Kansas. The air is starting to warm up and it rained pretty much all day yesterday. That’s typical spring time weather. We really needed it though. Things were really dry here. Haha and I was pretty excited about that because I love rainy days and think that running in the rain is a lot of fun! πŸ™‚ And yesterday’s 3 miler did not disappoint! I got soaked pretty fast. I also got frostnip on my legs because it was in the low 40’s when I ran. I probably should have put on my wind pants over my running tights. They’re usually pretty good at keeping me relatively dry. But oh well, it really wasn’t that bad and the redness, itchiness, and irritation that came with that was all gone by this morning. That was still totally worth all the fun I had in the rain yesterday.


This morning’s run was nowhere near as fun though. I actually procrastinated doing it by making myself an actual decent breakfast. Who does that?!? Me apparently…

Usually in the morning I can’t be bothered to make anything exciting for breakfast. Sometimes I throw a few frozen, whole wheat waffles in the toaster and then slather them with peanut butter and honey. Other days I’ll just grab a piece of fruit and a cheese stick. Or on really lazy day’s I’ll just eat a Honey Stinger waffle along with my coffee. But I knew running wasn’t going to be very exciting today, so I took a little bit of extra time with my breakfast. I toasted some bread, spread some avocado on it, topped that with sliced, cherry tomatoes, and then fried an egg to go on that as well. Hahaha I know that doesn’t sound too difficult, but in the morning I never feel like putting that much effort into what I’m eating. πŸ˜‰


I did eventually go out and get my run done, though. My 5k training plan called for 2 easy miles followed by a couple of strides, but those 2 miles sure didn’t feel easy… It actually seems to me that most of the “easy” runs I do don’t actually feel easy. They tend to feel more like I’m running through cold molasses. Oh well, I still did it though! Well, the 2 miles. I kinda sorta skipped the strides. I just wasn’t feeling it enough to do those.


But on the bright side, running seems to be going a lot better this week than it did last week! I know it’s only Tuesday, but I’m thinking the rest of the week is going to go pretty well. But maybe I’m only saying that because tomorrow is a rest day and then for Thursday my training plan calls for 30 minutes of cross training, so I wont actually have to run again until Friday. πŸ˜‰ But still, I’m a lot happier about running this week than I was last week, so at least that’s something. πŸ™‚

But anyway, now that spring is here I really need to start thinking about what I want to plant in my garden and I’m going to have to start tilling and preparing my soil here before too long. So far I know I’m definitely going to be growing my staples; tomatoes, banana peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, lettuce, and watermelon. I actually want to grow my vine plants on some kind of structure this year to help make weeding and harvesting a little bit easier. I’ve got a few ideas for that and Luke and I will be starting work on those soon. I also really wish I could get root vegetables to grow a little easier here, but they never do well because the soil here is so full of clay. A lot needs to be done to remedy that…Or you can do raised beds filled with good quality soil but those are kind of expensive to make. Maybe one day though. But for now we’re planning on sticking with plants that we know do well here.


A small harvest from last summer. That watermelon was sooooo good!! Haha I’m on a mission to grow several really good watermelons this year! It seems like each year I’ve grown them I’ve gotten bigger, better melons. And usually a few more than the year before. So I guess I must be learning something! And hopefully if that trend keeps up, I should end up with 5 or 6 really good watermelons this year! πŸ™‚

Now with the addition of our 5 chickens, we should end up getting a pretty decent amount of food from our backyard this year! I’m so freaking excited about having fresh eggs! I can’t wait for my chickens to start laying!! They’ve still got a while to go before they get to that point though. They are doing very well and growing bigger and getting more feathers every day! And as it starts getting even warmer they’re going to be able to spend a little bit more time outside. So far they’ve only been out twice for about 10-15 minutes at a time, just to make sure they didn’t get too cold. But in maybe two or three weeks, as long as it’s warm enough, we’ll be able to move them outside permanently. Haha I have a feeling we wont get that lucky though, it’s probably still going to be pretty chilly in April. If they were fully grown the cold wouldn’t be much of an issue, but when they’re young it’s very important that they’re kept warm.

Oh man, between my garden, the chickens, training for my 5k in May, training for my half marathon in November, the dogs, rabbits, and all of my other critters, plus another vacation we’re going to be going on with Luke’s family, I’m going to be crazy busy this spring and summer! It should be fun though! And besides, I’d much rather be busy than bored. πŸ˜‰

That’s all I’ve got for today! But what about you?

What are you looking forward to this spring? Any exciting plans?

Do you grow a garden? What’s you’re favorite thing to grow?

Does your city allow you to keep chickens? Would you if you could?Β (Technically my city doesn’t allow you to do it without a permit, but when have I ever let rules stop me?!? Luckily my neighbors are cool with it though, so it should be fine. πŸ˜‰ )

Β I hope you’ve had a terrific Tuesday!




Yay StrideBox, Chick Update, and 5K Training

I got my March StrideBox yesterday! Yay!!


I never got last months… The shipping tracker thing said it was delivered, but I think my mail lady might have stolen it. Yesterday I watched her scan it but then she didn’t put it in my mailbox and started to drive away. But I wonder if she saw me watching, because she ended up reversing the truck and putting it in my mailbox after all. Apparently I’m just gonna have to keep an eye on her whenever my StrideBoxes are supposed to be delivered. I have no actual proof, but like I said, I think she might have stolen last months.

I’m very glad I ended up getting this month’s StrideBox though! There were all sorts of neat/useful/and yummy goodies in there!! Super yummy protein cookies which I definitely already ate ;), sweet sunglasses, a bag that has a leak proof, air tight seal. That’s gonna come in real handy on rainy runs!! Haha I always bring my phone with me when I run, just in case, and on rainy days I usually just put my phone in a ziplock baggie. I think this bag thing is going to work out a lot better for rainy days. πŸ™‚


There was a also a Skratch Labs drink mix in there that I’m pretty excited about. Several different Skratch Labs products have come in a few different StrideBoxes and I’ve really liked all of them! I’m actually thinking I’m gonna have to order me some of their protein powered because I really liked it. I mixed it with plain water and it tasted exactly like chocolate milk! It was super yummy!! Haha that’s why I really enjoy getting these StrideBoxes! I get to try all sorts of new things that I would never see in a store or even think about picking up for myself. It’s pretty neat! Plus it’s basically like getting to open a gift every single month, and who doesn’t like that feeling?! πŸ˜‰


I definitely recommend subscribing to StrideBox if you like trying new snacks, interesting running gear, and basically getting to open a gift every single month. πŸ˜‰

I hope I don’t sound too much like and ad or anything like that here, but this is something that I really love and a brand that I actually really believe in.Β  In all transparency, I am a StrideBox ambassador and I do get these things for free. But after trying it out I’m totally sold and would definitely pay for a subscription. It’s $15 per box and that includes shipping, which seems well worth it to me! You really do get some neat stuff in each box!! You can check out all of the details of what StrideBox is all about here. πŸ™‚

Not gonna lie, I wish I hadn’t eaten all of those protein cookies in one sitting yesterday. They were so freaking tasty…

Anyway, lets talk chickens!!


I’ve had my own little flock for 3 whole days now, and I’m pretty sure I’m already a crazy chicken lady. πŸ˜‰ But in all fairness, I grew up on a farm in southern Illinois. I’ve been handling chickens literally for as long as I can remember. I’ve got a few interesting chicken stories spanning from my preschool days all the way through my time in high school, but those are stories for another day. Those were my grandpa’s and my dad’s flocks of chickens. Today I want to talk about mine!! πŸ˜‰

Since they have to be in their brooder box under their red heat lamp its kinda hard to get good photos of them which sucks, but once they start needing that less and less and then eventually move into the coop I’m sure I’ll have tons of photos of them to share haha. Right now they’re currently growing like weeds. You can literally see them get a little bit bigger and grow a few more feathers everyday! That means they wont be cute little fluffy babies much longer and are gonna go through that award feather growing stage soon. That’s kinda sad haha, they’re so cute right now. But that also means we’ll be that much closer to getting eggs and that’s what we want!!

On Sunday I had started giving them a few meal worms. We usually keep a little container of live ones for our leopard gecko but I know that chickens love things like that so I figured it would be a fun little treat for them, and oh boy was it! They absolutely loved them and watching them chase each other and fight over them was pretty hilarious! Plus I made them take the worms from my hands, so now 3 of them will come running whenever I stick my hands in the brooder box. The other 2 are still kinda skittish but hopefully they’ll come around eventually.

They’re all pretty funny though! The more time I spend with them the more I’m noticing about their different personalities and its pretty great! I have a feeling they’re going to end up providing us with a bunch of entertainment! I’m gonna have to come up with names for them soon. Luke hasn’t liked any of the names I’ve suggested so far, but he’s said multiple time now that they’re my chickens so I’m gonna name them whatever I want to dammit!! πŸ˜‰

That’s probably enough chicken talk for now though. There will be plenty more as time goes on haha. They are a pretty exciting little addition to my backyard farm though! And speaking of my backyard farm, we’re going to have to get our garden tilled and think about what we’re going to be planting this year! I’ve got a pretty good idea of some things I want to get done, but a lot of that has to wait until it gets a lot warmer out.

Anyway, my 5k training plan officially started yesterday! I kicked off this little training cycle with an easy 2 mile run! πŸ™‚


The very small amount of running I did in Colorado was fun and you definitely can’t beat the views there, but it was really nice to get back to running on the streets I know like the back of my hand. I never realized how much I enjoy zoning out on easy runs like yesterday’s and not having to pay attention to pot holes, cracks, and things of that nature. Sure running the same streets day in and day out can get a little boring, but it is nice to know exactly where everything is haha.

Anyway, this is the first 5k training plan I’ve ever done! I mean, at this point in my running career I’ve only done 2 “official” 5k’s, and I’ve always known that I’d be able to cover the distance without any issues so why train for it, right? Well now I know why! PR’s of course!! πŸ˜‰ Haha or you know, just being able to run strong and to your full potential, but this time around I’m chasing a PR! Kinda.

You see, between illness, injury, traveling, and general life stuff, I didn’t PR at any distance last year. I’m not at all upset with how my year in running went in 2017 but for 2018 I’ve decided I want to start chasing time goals again. But the 5k PR that’s listed on my “Goals and PR’s” page (which I desperately need to update haha. I’ll get to that eventually) is from 2016, I think? It may actually be from 2015! Either way, I know I’m not going to be able to accomplish that time at the Running With The Cow’s 5k in May. That’s currently my goal 5k. So for now I think I’m going to aim to run that in 38 minutes. For where I am currently that will be a challenging goal, but still obtainable. So for now that’s my plan! I’m gonna stick to an actual 5k training plan and work toward that time! πŸ™‚

I did the Running With the Cows 5k back in 2016, so I know the course is a little bit hilly, but it’s nothing that I’m too worried about.


Today my training plan called for a rest day which I am gladly taking! I’m still kinda worn down from traveling to Colorado, being at that elevation that I’m definitely not used to for a week, and then traveling back home. So I slept in a little bit today which was nice. And I just plan on walking the dogs and maybe doing a little bit of restorative yoga, so that should be nice. Plus I do have another 5k to look forward to on Sunday and I at least want to be semi rested for that haha!

Some things have come up so I’m not 100% certain if it’s going to go down anymore (I might still be able to make it, but due to recent developments I’m not so sure about my dad), but my dad and I are supposed to be running the Whisky Run 5k in Martin City MO. The only goal for that is to have fun and then collect our medals, pint glasses, shots of whiskey, and then enjoy our post run Sunday brunch that will be provided, so that should be easy enough. πŸ˜‰ Oh man, I really hope my dad will still be able to do this 5k with me.





I got this photo from KC Running Company’s Instagram account. I really want to add this medal to my collection haha. πŸ˜‰Β 

Obviously I’ll let you guys know if there are any further developments in our ability to do the Whiskey run, but until I know more about the current situation I’m going to plan on doing it! Running With The Cows will still be a-go no matter what, so at least there’s that haha.

But that is all for now!

Have a terrific Tuesday!!




My First Time In Nebraska, Home Sweet Home, and New Addition To My Backyard Farm!!

My brother and I left Colorado Friday evening around 5 pm and ended up going on a little adventure haha. To avoid taking the toll roads that are in Colorado and Kansas, my brother ended up going just a little too far north and we ended up in Nebraska. That was pretty funny. When we crossed the state line and saw the “welcome to Nebraska” sign we looked at each other and asked how the heck did we end up here? Luckily we were still heading east, so that’s all that mattered haha. So we drove through Nebraska, into Iowa for a little bit (that was my brother’s first time in Iowa haha I’ve been trough there when Luke and I went to visit his mom in Minnesota), down into Missouri, and then finally into Kansas. We ended up adding an extra hour to our trip, but neither of us were too worried about that. Although it did kinda suck that we finally got to my house around 6 am.

We brought my mom’s dog Bella with us. My mom is currently in Illinois with my grandma and my brother needed to get some stuff in Illinois from my dad, so that all ended up working out well. She road on my lap the whole way to Kansas and then my brother had her in a crate for the 5 hour trip to Illinois from my house. Apparently she did well on that ride too. I’m not particularly a fan of little dogs, but she is sweet. πŸ™‚ Although my dogs weren’t too sure what to think of her haha. Especially Finn. I don’t think he’s ever seen such a small dog before.

Apparently leaving the dogs/cats/rabbits/ferrets/Luke all alone for a week wasn’t a great idea. Apparently Luke spend the whole week living off of frozen food, trying to keep the dogs under control, and they all spent the week wrecking the house haha. So I spent yesterday scrubbing floors, doing laundry, washing dishes, and lots of other cleaning. Fun times…But someone needed to do it. πŸ˜‰

Anyway, yesterday Luke and I started our next new and exciting adventure! We are expanding our backyard farm with the addition of 5 new chicks!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Luke bought/built a chicken coop on Friday while I was still in Colorado, and then last night we went to Tractor Supply and got a brood box, heat lamp, a feeder/water thing, feed, vitamins, and of course the chicks themselves! Originally we were going to get 4 Isa Brown chicks, but they only had 3 of them left. So we got them and 2 other chicks of a different breed. Not gonna lie though, I don’t remember what they are haha. That’s not really important though, they’re good for laying and that’s what we want!

So we got our new babies home and set up in their brood box and slowly started introducing the dogs to them. Luckily Lily grew up on a farm and has some formal training, so she knows how to handle and how to behave around livestock, so we weren’t too worried about her. Haha she was actually pretty excited to see them! She used to herd my dad’s chickens all the time! Dean doesn’t want anything to do with them, which isn’t surprising. Dean has very little in the way of herding instinct and is pretty wary of anything new. Finn was the one we were most worried about. He’s got very impressive herding instincts but he is still young and very immature. Plus he really likes to nip at faces, which would be really good if he was working on cows, but obviously not so good when we’re talking about tiny little chicks. He ended up surprising us though and was very calm and never once showed his teeth to them. He has absolutely no clue what they are but you can see that he wants to herd them so badly haha. But luckily it’s looking like the dogs wont be an issue at all, so that’s good. πŸ™‚

So far the babies seem to be adjusting well. They handled meeting the dogs perfectly fine and they seem to have done well over night. They’ve been eating, drinking, pooping, and pecking around their brood box. So I’d say so far so good!! πŸ™‚ They’ve got to stay inside in their brood box for several weeks, but once they have all their feathers they get to be moved outside into the coop. Well, as long as it’s warm enough outside. So that’s all pretty exciting stuff! And before too long we’ll have our own eggs! I’m super excited about that! Like just about everything, home raised eggs are sooo much tastier/nutritious than store bought eggs. πŸ™‚


And pretty soon we’ll be tilling our garden plots and getting ready to plant some things! As sad as I always am to see winter go, spring is a pretty exciting time around here. πŸ™‚

Oh and I’ve currently got 2 5k’s on my scheduled to look forward to! Next Sunday I’m going to be doing a Whiskey 5k with my dad. That’s going to be a lot of fun!! My dad and I always have fun together but I think this is going to be extra exciting haha. It’s my dad’s first official 5k, we get a super spiffy pint glass at the end, and Jack Stacks is providing brunch for all of the finisher’s which is awesome! Jack Stacks has some very tasty food!! πŸ™‚


This is basically the perfect 5k for my dad. His last name is Martin (and mind was too before I got married haha), he basically collects neat glasses like this, and he likes whiskey. So like I said, perfect! πŸ˜‰

And then in May I’m doing the Running With The Cows 5k again. I’m really looking forward to doing that! I had a lot of fun at that race back in 2016 and this year I even plan on training for it! I’ve never done an actual 5k training program before so that should be interesting. Training for that actually starts tomorrow, so I’ll definitely keep you guys updated on how that goes! I’m hoping I’ll be able to shave off a little bit of time from current 5k times, so hopefully I’ll be able to make that happen! πŸ™‚


That’s all I’ve got for now! No weekly recap for this week. I pretty much posted everyday while I was in Colorado and I really didn’t do much running anyway haha. Plus I’ve still got a bunch of cleaning to do and I’ve got to tend to my flock of chickens! πŸ˜‰

Happy Sunday!!


Happy February!!Β 

I’ve definitely started off the new month on the right foot! Woke up at 5:40 am, made myself some French toast (I don’t know why I’m on such a big French toast kick, but it’s currently working for me.), then read a little bit of Shoe Dog while I had my morning cup of coffee. I honestly can’t think of a better way to start the day/month!

Processed with Rookie Cam

Except that’s kind of a lie, because I totally can! How about a shiny new 10k PR for the first day of February?! That was most definitely the icing on the cake. February is officially off to the best possible start ever! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„


Not to mention the fact that I did my current favorite workout, which is a 2 mile warm up, 40 minutes of intervals (3 minutes “hard” running, 1 minute walking), followed by a little over a mile to cool down (obviously I had to hit the 10k mark πŸ˜‰). Oh man, it’s just a lot of fun!

Plus I figured out that the road I found last week goes on a lot further than I had originally though. I’m definitely going to have to investigate this during my long run this weekend.

Processed with Rookie Cam

Not gonna lie though, after the excitement of PRing wore off I was pretty darn tired, so I didn’t end up doing anything too strenuous for the rest of the day haha. I probably should have done some yoga or something, but meh, I was too tired. At the very least I did the whole legs up on the wall thing, so hopefully I wont end up with too much lactic acid in my legs. I guess I could foam roll at some point tonight, but that doesn’t sound like any fun (*sigh* I’m probably going to do it though).

Anyway, after I had showered and eaten I spent quite a but of time (almost 3 hours, I think?) messing with the theme of my blog. Not sure if I’m even happy with it at this point, but I just got too tired of sitting in front of the computer to care. I hate spending long periods of time staring at a computer screen (and I suppose that sounds kinda weird coming from someone who enjoys blogging). My eyes always start to hurt, sometimes I get headaches, and I always end up feeling super tired. Like 90% of what Luke does at work is stare at a computer and I don’t know how he does it! Seriously, I wanted to die after all of the time I spent in front of the computer today. I was actually excited to take a brake from screens and do my usual chores! I’ve literally never been so excited to unload the dishwasher, take out the trash, and sweep the floor haha.

Unfortunately that didn’t last long. After I was done I found myself right back at the computer, typing up most of this post, and parts of a few others. Good thing my run this morning was pretty hard, and I hit my step goal because of it, or else I’d have to feel kinda bad about all the sitting and doing nothing I’ve done today. Well, if you count blogging as doing nothing I guess haha. Jeez, I never thought keeping up with a blog would be this much work! It is fun though and I do enjoy it, but man, I think I could safely go the rest of this week without so much as a glance at a computer or phone or even a tv. I’m all technology-ed out… It really is hard to escape all of the screen time in this crazy modern world we live in. That’s why I think it’s so super important to spend some time outside in nature and disconnecting from it all. Running definitely provides that for me, and that’s one of the many reasons why I love it so much. πŸ™‚ Walking my dogs and all the gardening I plan on doing this spring also helps provide me with some much needed outdoor time. πŸ™‚

Speaking of gardening (I am the master of segues, I know. πŸ˜‰ ), I’m thinking it’s almost time to do some tilling! I won’t be able to plant much until around late March or early April, but right now it a pretty good time to start preparing the soil! Since it’s been a relatively mild winter (there were a few super cold days, but for the most part it never really stayed that cold and it only snowed twice. Sad face.) the ground isn’t frozen, so might as well get a head start! What I really need to do is turn my compost pile then add some of that to the garden plots before I start tilling. Perhaps that is something I should do this weekend, along with figuring out what all I want to plant. I definitely plan on doing tomatoes again, those are always a good choice. The bunnies really liked the broccoli I grew, even though we only got a few heads of it haha. Oh well, the leafs are full of some awesome nutrients too, and hey, you can’t argue with free bunny food! My cucumbers, while a little bitter, also did really well last year, so I think I’m going to be growing more of them. I for sure want to do another watermelon vine! Last year I tried my damnedest to keep my watermelon plant happy and I only ended up with one stinking melon (although that is better than nothing I suppose), so I feel like I have some unfinished business with watermelon plants haha. Oh man, just thinking about all the plants I want to grow makes me super excited, even though I’m not at all fond of the warmer months, at least I have something to do during them.

Along with all the garden fun, Luke’s been talking about building a small chicken coup and getting a few chickens! Technically you need a permit from the city to do that, but there are several houses in our neighborhood who keep chickens (one guy even has a goose! And doves, and a few ducks, and a bunch of bunnies, and 3 dogs haha). And if that permit is anything like the stupid licence you’re supposed to get for your dogs, then no one actually has one. Seriously, no one that I’ve talked to actually has their dogs licensed with the city. It just seems like a really useless thing to do and a waste of money. Anyway, I would really love to keep our own chickens! That would be so super neat! I miss having chickens, goats, cows, etc…Although I’m not entirely sure how we’d make the chicken thing work unless we build them a super sturdy and covered enclosure. Otherwise I feel like they’d just end up running around the neighborhood. That would be kinda funny though, just to see some chickens walking down the street haha.

I really wish we could get a goat! Then we would hardly ever have to mow our lawn and goats are just fun in general! Unfortunately, the city specifically sates that you cannot own a goat. Boo. That’s no fun. Maybe one day we’ll finally move out of city limits and onto a little bit of land. That would be nice. πŸ™‚

I realize now that I’ve just gone on a bit of a tangent, and for that I apologize. I just get super excited about those kinds of things!

Anyway, It’s looking like I’m going to be quite busy this summer! Hopefully that means it’ll go by super fast and I wont be so super miserable about being hot (I am seriously the worlds biggest baby when it comes to hot weather). The whole garden thing is going to take up a whole lot of my time, obviously I’m going to continue running and hopefully start training for my 3rd half marathon! Not gonna lie, I kinda want to run Longview for the 3rd year in a row. Since that particular race is so brand new, at this point I’ve only missed the very first year it’s been held! Since it’s only been going on for 3 years that’s not all that impressive, but if I can keep doing this race, it’ll be super impressive when I can say I’ve been running it basically since it started for like 20 years or something. Hey! A girl can dream.

We’ve also got the Florida trip happening with Luke’s mom in July. At this point it’s sounding like we’re going to be in Florida for two weeks. That should be interesting considering my deep hatred of the summer heat, which is only a lot worse in Florida. At the very least, living in the Midwest my whole life has prepared me to deal with humidity. But It’ll probably end up being a really fun trip though. Luke’s mom and two younger siblings moved to Minnesota a few years ago, so we don’t exactly get to see them very often, and now we have a chance to spend two whole weeks with them! I’m not exactly sure how I’m going to keep up with my running scheduled in Florida, but I guess I’ll find a way.

In August my parents will be coming here from Colorado to see Green Day with me! I am so ridiculously stoked for that! It’s going to be soooo much fun!! And I suppose since they’re coming to see me in Kansas, I’m going to have to go visit them in Colorado at some point. And my sister too! She lives on an army base about an hour south of my parents, so at least I’d probably get to see everyone no matter how much time I actually end up spending there. Plus, her husband was just recently deployed to Poland and he’s going to be there for a while, so I’m sure she’s going to end up being kinda lonely…What I reallyΒ reallyΒ want to do is some trail running in Colorado! But since I’m not even sure that I’ll be making my way there (even though I really want to this summer) I’m not making any plans or getting too excited about it.

I think that’s all we’ve got planned so far, and honestly I’m hoping we don’t end up doing much else, that’s quite a bit going on already! Plus we’re going to have to figure out what to do with all the critters while we’re in Florida, and what to do about the garden. Especially if I’m going to be gone more than once. I’m sure we’ll figure it out though. We usually do. πŸ™‚

As for more current things well, we don’t really have much going on right now. Aside from the plans I’ve basically just made about the garden that is. I’d really love to run some 5k’s and 10k’s this spring, but I don’t think we’ll be able to make that happen because money. Darn races just have to be so expensive…Ah well. I’m pretty much content to continue running around my neighborhood. I’m kind of a loner by nature anyway so I don’t really mind missing out on the social aspect of racing, and I’ve got a whole new road that I need to explore! That’ll add some excitement into my usual routine.

So, I didn’t exactly intend on this post being a “this is what I’ve got coming up on my scheduled” kind of deal, but it just sorta happened. I’ve notice that at the beginning of each new month I like to look ahead at what I’ve got planned in the future, just to make sure everything is going to be able to flow together without any big events overlapping and I guess that’s kinda what happened today! Plus I just like to ramble on and on sometimes. πŸ˜‰

So what about you? Got any exciting plans coming up? Spring races? Summer road trips? Concerts of any kind? I want to hear all about it!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

I hope you’ve had a wonderful Wednesday!
