Happy Spring Equinox - 2016!

Happy Spring!  It officially arrived at 12:30 AM this morning!

But it doesn't seem as if the weather gods have gotten on the same page because a snowstorm was forecast for today (now pushed back to tonight and the amount of snow predicted has been reduced substantially).  Still, the idea that we're welcoming the first day of Spring with snow, however slight, is a bit chilly :D

Either way, enjoy the day - and the prospects for warmer (and sunnier) ones coming up!

March 2016 Race Schedule

Even with the extra "leap day" this time around, February flew by - and it seems Winter did along with it!  Looks like the groundhog's prediction for an early Spring is coming true.  That said, February saw my lowest monthly mileage (when I wasn't injured) - my first sub-100 mile month (95)in what seemed like forever! But hopefully the warmer weather will see my running mojo (and mileage) rebound this month.

As for races, I think there are only 3 that I've penciled in for sure - the Taconic's St. Patrick's 10k, the Boston Blow-out 30k and the Bunny Boogie 3 Miler (a somewhat eclectic mix).  I had wanted to run the NYRR 5k this weekend (team point's race), but was closed out :(

Here's how it looks so far:

3/13 - Taconic St. Patrick's 10k
3/20 - Boston Blowout 30k
3/26 - Bunny Boogie 3 Miler

As always, if you're at any of these - say hello!
