march is busy because april is going to be even busier. april 16 is my half marathon and april 22 is b's graduation. lotssss of things need to happen before those get here though, and in the meantime i'm getting a little tired of running [and job hunting, for that matter]. i'm excited for the race, but all these long weekly runs are becoming tedious.
in case you were wondering, i ran 10 miles on saturday. TEN! wow. i am really not one of those people who can nonchalantly tell you that i did something monumental but act like it's no big deal...i am seriously amazed that I actually ran 10 miles and i want the world to know it. pretty big deal. [but not that big because this weekend i have to run 11.] special thanks to fall out boy & sugarland for pumping me up and power bar for feeding me at the end. i also stashed a vitamin water halfway along my course, drank some and left the bottle for a later pickup. such fun tricks you learn as a runner!
the weather has been SO nice lately and i am so excited for spring. as much as i dislike actual seasons, i will say that enduring winter makes you appreciate spring and summer a lot more. jack and i have been taking advantage of the sunshine with long walks, trips to the park and playing on the grass. and, last week, daddy took him up to visit the utes football team, who are currently enduring spring practice up at rice-eccles stadium. jack had fun...exhibit a:
the monkey is becoming quite an efficient army-crawler. he goes really fast if he's motivated by something like a plate of brownies (don't worry, he didn't get to taste them) but typically only scoots around a few feet at a time. and then he likes to take a break by posing like a swimsuit model, and it is SO cute. see exhibit b:
and exhibit c, just cause i love this little face:
hope your march is fun too!
