Oh hello, is this a running blog? Oops...I must have forgotten. I have run ONE time since the 5k last weekend. I know my readers have been waiting in suspense for me to end the radio silence this week (Hi mom, hi dad, hi Drew!) Jokes aside though, I think it's important for me to keep posting as if I have tons of people reading, because isn't that the goal? If I didn't want to gain readership I'd just be telling these things to my parents! I started this blog because all I talk about is running; how much I love it, how much I dread it sometimes, how much joy it brings me, how I want to get better, how much better I've gotten, to offer any tips I may have, to listen to others' advice, etc. etc. So I must get back to the task at hand.
I know a few posts ago I was really sick of talking about what a doozy this winter has been, but it's time to talk about it again. My life is totally thrown off right now - as is lots of people's lives I'm sure.

|The snow sure was gorgeous Friday morning though!|
|Beautiful PURPLE flowers from Drew. Purple is my favorite :)|
I came home yesterday to spend time with my mom before she leaves again for the UK this weekend. I am very, very sad about the fact that my parents are moving (but it's really exciting for them of course and will bring so many new fun memories for our whole family)! But talk about out of the routine. I will have to start adapting to my "new normal" very soon. Right now I'm cherishing our time together. One perk of all the time off work I've had - I get to spend lots of time with my mom.
Today I worked on getting back into the normal life. I walked my doggies, hung out with my mom and brother, went to Monday night spin and ate a healthy dinner, quickly negated it with dessert (duh):
|I tried to capture how deep the snow is - Winston is a full grown lab, and it is almost taller than him!!|
|Scrambled eggs and roasted sweet potatoes.|
|BEST ICE CREAM FLAVOR EVER (I"m not even a huge chocolate ice cream fan).|
I'm ready to go back to work tomorrow and take on the week feeling recharged! If we don't have a late start :)
1. Do you thrive with a routine, or do you like chaos?
2. How was you Valentine's Day?
3. How do you feel when you miss a workout?
