What a BEAUTIFUL day!!

Today was SOO gorgeous! The sun was shining, there were barely any clouds in the sky, the sun was nice and warm, and I didn't have to get all dressed up in a million layers just to run. I hope that means spring is here and it's going to be gorgeous like this for a while.

(The trail around the lake.)

Today I was scheduled to run 4 miles. I had my alarm set for 5:30, but I hit snooze until 7:30 and then waited until 1 to do my run. My wonderful man, Jason, said he wanted to run with me today. He used to be on the cross country team in high school, but really hasn't run since then. We started out good and he kept asking if I was going slow cause of him...nope....I'm just slow the first few miles until I hit my groove. :) So, he lasted until 2 miles and that's when his old running shoes started giving him shin splints. So, I thought since there were no kids, it was a great way to be with just him and talk. So, we walked the last 2 miles and had a great time talking.

When we first met we both lived in Mannheim, Germany and we would walk around this awesome park. We called it Buffalo Park. It was the coolest place ever. Too bad I wasn't a runner back then cause that would have been great to run out there. Trees everywhere, lots of trails...everything a runner could want. Anyway, today's run/walk made us think of back in the day. Good times!

So, even though today wasn't a big "run" day, it was really great and I enjoyed my time with my man.

Tomorrow's 5 miles and if tomorrows as nice as today, I'll have to run it during nap time cause the weather was AWESOME!

(Today's food...I thought I ate more than that....)
