I finally feel like I am back in the groove with a regular running schedule. Even though I am not using a GPS watch or GPS running apps, I am enjoying my running more than I have in quite a while! I’m sure it might also have something to do with daylight savings time, more sunshine, and snow melting!
My regular weekly runs have been just over 3 miles, and I am starting to add a mile each week to my long runs. It’s been so nice to head out the door and just take in the beautiful scenery, without caring about how fast I’m going. Am I still curious about pace sometimes? Of course! But you know what? Right now, I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
I am also SUPER EXCITED to announce that I am an aunt! My niece was born yesterday, and I cannot wait to go see her next month in San Diego. It will be nice to finally have a girl amongst all of these boys! I’m sure she’s going to be one tough chick! 🙂
In other news, the kitchen reno is finally nearing completion, and I feel like my sanity is slowly returning with it. There’s a little finishing work left and some painting (that will be done by yours truly and the hubs). It’s so nice to have all of the extra counter space and a gas range! I’ve been spending a lot more time cooking and baking. On that note, here’s a DELICIOUS blueberry muffin recipe I made Sunday (don’t they look scrumptious?!). They’ve been key for a quick breakfast!
