summer has arrived in MD

Well it's been in the 70's/80's for the past week and a half so I'm declaring that summer has arrived. Some people are complaining that we went from winter to summer but I say, "Bring it on!" Go to the 90's or 100's if you must...I'm happy with HOT!!

The lovely weather has motivated me to start some running again...starting out slow though. I ran three miles yesterday and it went fairly well. There is a 5 mile race and a 9 mile race that I want to do in May so we'll see if I make it. I've also been contemplating(yes, only contemplating at this point) participating in a sprint triathlon race. Now don't let "sprint" fool you...this body does not "sprint" anywhere...but a sprint triathlon does mean shorter distances(.25 mile swim, 10 mile bike, and 2 mile run). The swim part is going to be the doozy for me. Hopefully I'll get in the pool this week and see how it goes.

Mike had his annual(or is it twice a year?)physical tests for his work tonight and apparently he did well. He has bad shin splints so he invested in some quite expensive custom made insoles and apparently that made the difference. After his run, he said he had no shin problems. Will my husband be my new running partner? Guess we'll see. :)

I'm coaching Poms for the nearby Boys & Girls Club again this year and we are in full force. The girls are adorable(I have the 4-6 year olds again this year) and it's so much fun to see them learn and grow. And they are so stinkin' cute in their tiny little uniforms! :)

Can't think of too much else to report...work is going well for both of us. Mike loves his new area and I'm definitely enjoying my new position(not that I didn't like my previous position but you know what I mean).

Well, Boulevard is doing the "take me outside growl"...apparently he likes the nice weather as well!

You're kind of like your dad on loving the heat huh? ;o) That triathalon sounds cool, and doable, except for that whole swimming thing. I totally agree with you there! ;o) Enjoy your weather, ours hasn't been quite that good, but we'll take what we get after our awesome winter.
