|Flowers are starting to sprout!|
|Tuesday morning we are greeted with this!|
So what do I have planned next? This weekend I am accompanying Jamie, of Running Diva Mom, HERE on her 4th 1/2 marathon of the year. We are meeting in the morning and will be running an out and back course. Although she runs faster than me, she graciously slows down a little so that it is manageable for me. THANKS Jamie!
Then the excitement shifts to biking. Next weekend I will be traveling to New York with 4 other friends / co-workers to participate in Bike New York on May 1 - pedaling down 42 miles of car-free streets through all five boroughs, taking in views of iconic landmarks like the Empire State building, Brooklyn Bridge, historic Harlem, and the Statue of Liberty. I am very excited. Major road trip - at 55 years old, I would much rather fly - but we will be driving. Probably pulling an all-nighter - Oh my gosh - what did I get myself in to? It will be great and I know I will have a GREAT time. What an experience - once in a life time - for sure. Stay tuned - I will try to blog and post a couple of pictures from the road trip and the bike ride.
I have tomorrow off of work and am sooooo glad. I plan to turn my alarm clock off and wake up - whenever. I know myself and I will probably get up / or get woken up by the dog or cat around 6:30. But just knowing that the alarm is shut off and if I want to go back to sleep - I can - is a wonderful feeling.
