new month

30 Days of New: Day 29

Today, I signed up for a half marathon that I have never run before: the Dexter-Ann Arbor on June 2nd.  

I am very familiar with the course and the area, which is BEAUTIFUL,  but it is supposed to be a hilly course.  I, whether it be to my benefit or detriment, don’t generally check out race courses before I sign up or run a race. I don’t check elevation, water stations, restrooms, etc.  I just lace up, show up, and follow the pack.  So we will see how this one goes.

I can’t believe that tomorrow is my last day of this.  I am excited for May to start.  I like the idea of a new month, getting back to work without George weighing me down, an actual change in the seasons.  It kind of feels like a fresh start.

What are you hopes for May? 

I forgot it’s a new month!

I forgot to say happy April!  

What more do you need to lift your spirits than a new month?  An empty canvas of which to paint a whole new calendars worth of good days.

Since it is a new month, how about a 30 dayer? I am thinking, “30 Days of New”.  Whether it be doing something for the first time, rediscovering something from your past, or learning something that I didn’t know before, April is now “30 Days of New”.

For now, we will consider my morning funk and April Fool’s joke. (Paul and I just had a discussion about April Fool’s jokes this morning, both saying that we dislike the cruel pranks that take place on this day, which I followed up with, “Oh, I’m pregnant by the way”. I honestly think smart-ass is a blood type, and it is what inhabits my veins).

Happy April!  Let’s make it a great month (and hopefully find spring?)!

(I hate to admit that I am currently rediscovering the first Britney Spears album.  I don’t know, but I was craving some music from my early high school days.  No judging…it took a lot to admit that).
