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 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).
