Okay, seriously, who turned off Spring? Yesterday was fabulous, even with the rain…and today, @(#&! 29 degrees! Totally not fair.

However, as with every cloud, there is a silver lining.Spring Training begins today. Pitchers and catchers report today and the full squads report over the weekend. I can’t wait for baseball season to begin.

I ran 5 miles last night in 54:39. I was flying around town and I can’t wait to break the 30 minute mark on the 5K. It felt great to break that hour mark on the 5 miles. I’ve got 6 miles to run on Saturday and with my Valentine’s gift Aside: Thank you baby, a new Garmin Forerunner 101, I shouldn’t get lost in the park this Saturday and I should be able to run only 6 miles. *laughing* My knees will thank me for it.
