It’s Finally Spring! + Spartan Race Winner!

10 Comments

I had to stop a few times last week to take pictures of the bright green view! Seems like spring is finally here which means, more running in less clothes which actually means less laundry. (just remember to replace less clothing with more sunscreen!!)

It also means having a weekend beer outdoors! We went up to Denizens in Silver Spring over the weekend. They have fantastic craft beer and an outdoor patio where you can bring dogs 🙂

I normally do my long runs on Saturday- but I chose to sleep in and enjoy the spring day at Denizens. Needless to say, Sunday’s 11 miler was a little rough. It was my last 10+ run until the half marathon in 12 days! I’m trying to stay calm and not get ahead of myself. I’ll be focusing on sleep, nutrition and mental prep leading up to the race.

And I voted over the weekend! LE got her own sticker, but wouldn’t share who she supported.

We also took a few walks this weekend because it was so freaking beautiful out and we had to try out the harness we got LE.

  1. Can’t wait to see you kill it in ocean city!!

  2. Love getting outdoors all the time just because … and just tossing on shorts and shirt to go for a run!

    Excited for your half marathon!

  3. I look forward to bike rides and open water swimming as the weather gets warmer. I can usually start enjoying my bike rides in March, and I can start swimming outside in June or July!

  4. This weather has been amazing! I just want to be outside all the time. I agree that warmer weather means less laundry and that is definitely something to be excited about!

  5. I’m so excited to see how you do in your half! Warm weather means grilling and hanging out in our yard. Plus camping. We need to head down to the desert ASAP!
