“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt”.

-Margaret Atwood-

I tried something new today! I like to try new things whether it be food, activities, or whatever every once in a while. Today it was papaya and coffee beans with blueberry flavor. The coffee was a lot better than I thought it would be, the papaya was a disappointment. However, it was pretty, so not a total loss!

I don’t know about you, but I am {LOVING} this weather. Spring is my absolute FAVORITE season. (Autumn in a close second). I’ve spent the last couple of weeks getting my garden ready and checking out the various Farmer’s Markets in the area. LOVE. SPRING.

FYI: Parker built this strawberry box for me which I thought was very sweet:)

This is a good time of year to get your workouts in outdoors. Go to a park, explore some trails, ride your bike to the store, go rock climbing! ┬áThe weather won’t last long so I advise you to take advantage of it now!

If you’ve never run a race before, (5k or otherwise) then I challenge you to do so! Even if you’re not a runner, you can start small and work your way up to your goal. Some good sites to look for races include active.com, runningintheusa.com, and runnersworld.com.
