Where is Spring?

Where is spring and when am I going to get used to this Ohio weather?  43 degrees in May is ridiculous!  I hope you are having better weather than me! All I see is clouds, rain, and cold.  I begged God for fall weather when I was living in south Alabama.  I couldn't wait for the weather to cool off and now I wonderer why I would ever want that!  Give me 95 degrees back.

Today, I convinced Jerry to run a new loop with me that I discovered the other day. I really didn't think it was as long as it actually was but Jerry was a trouper!  He finished 3.5 miles and I'm so proud!  I ran one more mile by myself.  It felt so good to let loose and push my pace!  Jerry's goal is to do the Air Force Half in September and I know he'll do great.

Yesterday I was shopping at Kohl's and found us new running outfits.  I bought my hubby some Nike running shorts and a shirt. 

And, I bought myself this outfit.  Isn't it cute?  It's called Tek Gear.  The top was $13 and the bottoms $11.  I love my Nike and Under Armor but I also love a good sale!  

Happy Running!

As I mentioned in my last couple posts, I moved to a lovely new city.  We've been in our new apartment for 6 days now and are loving it!  I can't wait to have all my pictures and decorations up on the walls.  I'll post when I do!  :)  One of my favorite things about living and visiting new places is being able to explore a new city by finding new running routes.  I've been told that there are lots of pretty parks but I haven't found them yet.  Today, I ventured out of my neighborhood and followed the bike path.  I found lot of restaurants, shops, a historical park, and the fire department!  I'm not a big ice cream fan because I hate being cold but I thought it sounded good while I was sweating!  It was a really fun run!  I kept it easy and only ran 4.5 miles in 39:59.  I still feel a slight discomfort in my left ankle and I want to be careful.

Tonight I've been slaving in the kitchen making Mexican dinner.  I made guacamole dip and cheesy vegetarian quesadillas.  I love making my own guacamole dip but I'm so messy!  Some how I managed to drop about half of my cilantro on the floor.  I'm just glad I had enough for the dip!  I also seem to always get avocado all over me....on my shirt, hands, all over the whole paper towel roll.  Oh well. 

It turned out to be a great dinner.  We're stuffed!  Now for some wine and more Lost (we're in season 5!). 

Enjoy your Sunday night!
