No Gaiter, Either!
A date was set for the burial. I can do the April half, if I want. But there’s still some other stuff going on in my life that means it’s still in limbo. You’ll have to stay tuned to see how it all turns out.

My Hill repeats hill — it’s not that bad a hill, but multiple times gets tiring
The sun was partly shining, but man it was windy and cold! Which probably explains why I thought I was slow in the beginning, but actually was running at a good pace for me. Added a mile. Really didn’t want to get out there, and while I can’t say I enjoyed this run, I didn’t regret it either.
Today was actually beautiful. Sunny, but cold. If I didn’t have to walk the dogs and have a lot to do, I would absolutely have run outside. I knew I’d be getting outside later with the dogs. The treadmill was a time saver in the morning. I had intended to try for 4 miles progressive — and I tried — but I was just not feeling that last mile so I called it good at 3.5 miles.
This run was on the slow side — maybe I do run faster when it’s colder — but my God, that sure felt good. 40s, sunny, no wind. It’s the first run I’ve actually wanted to get outside and do in weeks. About 90% of it was in the snow & ice-free park, too.
Favorites of the week
This is the second pair of Newtons Mr. Judy has ordered for me on Ebay. From England! Yes, the second time my running shoes came from England. I’m happy that Ebay makes that possible.
I just happened to catch the first bulbs trying to shoot up on yesterday’s dogwalk. It feels early — but definitely makes me happy! Yay for an early Spring (even if we’re looking at Wintry mix next week).
Have you seen any bulbs? Are any bulbs blooming?
Will you be happy for an early Spring?
Do you buy running shoes because of the pattern/color? I have to admit that I just ordered a different brand, for easy days, with a floral bottom. I ordered them because they were on sale — and yes, cute — but I’ve never worn that particular model so we’ll see.
