I must say, I am happy to see March in the rear-view mirror. Good riddance. It was a rough end to a rough month. The last few days were filled with puke, snot, sore throats and ear infections. I'm over March.
Hello April! I'm saying April starts today. I realize it's the 2nd, but I want to start the month on a high note, and yesterday wasn't that. I can ignore April Fools Day, Right?
Today was awesome. A rare warm/sunny day in Seattle. I took the kids to school, went to Target (alone!) then went for a short run. It was fabulous. To be outside, running, in the sunshine. I seriously almost started crying, I was so happy. I ran 2.16 miles. Not much, but more than I had done in the last month. I am on top of the world. I am going to take it slow so I don't screw up my shin again, but I'm super happy to be back out there.
I was originally going to write about the conflicted feelings I have about racing this year. It is April 1st (or 2nd) and I have only registered for 1 race. I usually have a full calendar by now. Instead of getting into that now, I'm going to enjoy the sunny feeling I have today, and hope for more tomorrow.
