Easter week

Easter is upon us! woo hoo! I love Easter. It's like the Christian's super bowl. And we win every year. This year my husband and I are in our church's Reader's Theater. It's going to be pretty great! And Good Friday will involve the high priest & a goat.....that's gonna be big. 
I also love spring. I didn't realize how much I missed the country in spring until i was in a city. But the scent of rich black dirt in the fields, the sound of running water from the melting snow drifts, the birds singing, the bulbs coming up...ahh. Spring only lasts a couple weeks in Minnesota, so blink and you miss it. But I enjoy it every year!

my beloved Sakatah state trail in the spring;-)

The ice dam that is our front yard is slowly melting as well. I won't miss that at all.

I've been able to get out and run regularly for the last half of march. So that's wonderful. I feel great. I'm also part of a Workout Accountability & kick butt group on Facebook, which has been definitely kicking my butt. (I'm sore all over the place!!)

bring on a run. please:)

I'm trying so hard to not go absolutely crazy. But this winter is really driving me mad! I have cabin fever and want to run so badly, but for some reason I'm having the hardest time getting up to go! when it's icy and slick and cold. I'm such a wuss this year! I usually love winter and the cold, but this year I'm just not into it. Postpartum hot flashes have subsided, so maybe that was my secret weapon...At any rate, I probably don't have an excuse. But spring is coming. sl  o   w   l   y........

Headed to Indiana this weekend for spring break. I hear it's not as icy there:)
                                                       I'll bring my Altras & a hat!
