Spring running update

Hello poor neglected blog. The slacker is back. After a nice 5.4 miles yesterday I was so energized for an 8+ mile run today. It felt great! Of course spring has sprung and that helps. It was the first time I've been able to wear shorts as it was a balmy 45 degrees. I ran close to the rising Red River and was amazed at all the dike building going on. We're just waiting for the flood waters to flow. After my run I had one of my favorite post run smoothies - blueberry, peanut butter, ovaltine and protein.

Oh, I should add I just signed up for the Fargo Half Marathon on May 9. WOOHOO!

Where is spring?

It's been a long cold winter and there doesn't seem to be any end in sight. I can say that the cold is not the only thing hampering my running but it certainly is a good excuse. Never the less, I made it out the door this morning for a nice chilly -8 °F run. My first run in a few weeks. I hope spring comes soon.
