Snow in March

Yes, today is March 25 and it is snowing. Not just a couple flakes, but a million that is making the world white again. Sigh. This has been the LONGEST winter ever. We had a zillion snow days (ok 6) and had enough snow that we had to buy a snow plow for the truck to be able to get in and out of the driveway. Just when we thought spring would finally come, there is no sun or even rain. Just snow and a strong wind.

5K Queen

I'm laughing just thinking of the title of this post. For new years I decided to give myself an "Out of The Box" resolution. Something so out of my comfort zone that it would practically be a joke. I decided to run a 5K every month for the whole year of 2014! The only sucker who took the bait was my husband who I think has to take the bait whenever I offer it, due to contractual obligation implied from our wedding vows. The first race was in Fremont Michigan. We barely made it out of the drive way because of snow and actually got stuck on our way home. The Frostbite. To my surprise, I loved it. I loved doing something with my husband, knowing that this was my first step, and when I finished, I couldn't believe that little old me could do it.
