Is the end in sight?

I’m over the cold and the snow – bottom line!  It makes me want to be back in Arizona visiting family.  But then I have to remind myself that I would need to visit them again in August so that I would remember how much I HATE the oppressive heat out there.  Never happy, right?

But this was a lovely vision on the drive through my neighborhood after work.  A melting snowman.  I’ll give these folks credit, it was a good snowman up until today but I am happy to see it begin its demise.


It suppose to get up to 56 degrees tomorrow and I am hoping to run outside.  Technically there is a training 10K Saturday morning but I don’t want to pay $20 to do it so I need to just run that distance myself near the house. 

Warm again on Sunday but 100% chance of rain.  As if the backyard isn’t a wet soggy mess already from all the melting snow.  It is quite the task wiping the feet of three dogs before they come back in.

But hopefully the end of cold weather is near.  We “Spring” forward Saturday night/Sunday morning and then the first day of Spring is March 20th.  Only 12 days away.  YES!


  1. I too am pumped about SPRINGING forward :) It always takes me a few days to "catch up" with it but I love the idea of spring being closer!

    1. I see that you are hoping to do MCM this year. My husband and I did it in 2010. Although I am not a good/fast runner and prefer 13.1 over 26.2, it was one of the most amazing races I've done. Good luck to you!
