Today is the first day of Spring!! Where Fall is my favorite season, Spring is a very close second! I love when the weather starts warming up, the kids are all outside playing, the flowers are blooming and the moods of people generally improve! I'm stuck inside working today, but I will be going to Potomac River Running today to pick up a new pair of kicks so I can begin my 5K training. I've been getting in 60 minutes of cardio at least 5-6 days a week for the past few weeks and am in dire need of a new pair. I've had my current pair since I trained for the 3-Day 4 1/2 years ago!!

I'm also very excited for Spring cleaning! Sounds silly, but it's the best time to open all the windows, crank up the music and really get things organized! A lot of things are sitting in boxes that we MAY use someday but haven't in years, so really, they can GO!

So, Happy Spring everybody!!! Get outside, get active and GET CLEANING!!! :)

My new goal.....

Well, I did it! Today I signed up for a 5K. I did one a few years back, but didn't train for it. I only ran the first mile and walked the rest. So, on May 31, I will be RUNNING the whole thing! The only goal I have set for myself is that I finish it by running the whole thing. For those of you who know me, you know I am NOT a runner! So, this will be a really big challenge for me. One that I am very excited to accomplish! I think this may lead to bigger and better things! I will try to blog about my progress with the training. Wish me luck!
