Flash Friday

As spring break approached, I looked upon it with glee, thinking about all those local trails I’d get to run.  No more 3 school drop-offs.  No more 3 pick-ups, FOR A WHOLE WEEK.  I’d get to go to the gym and not rush out to pick up anyone – the little ones, well, they’d all be cuddled up in their beds instead.

Ha!  Thus far, I’ve got in one run.  And today, I finally made it to the gym.  Had to wake at 5:30 AM to do so, but I got in a decent work-out.  On the good side, aside from all the boys harassing and teasing each other, we’ve got in a lot of fun time, play dates and even a movie at the theatres.  So, I suppose, even with all the loudness and fart jokes and rough-housing, I can’t beat a spring break spent with the family.

Today, is officially my Flash Friday – where I do a quick flashback (as I’ve mentioned before, stolen heavily influenced from Johann’s Throwback Thursday and other fun blog fillers like Lindsay, Whit, and Stuart’s Worldless Wednesday)

SKIING (1993 – 1995 / YEARS before I began running)  I chose skiing as my flashback topic after reading so many blogs from cyclists and runners who are still basically “snowed” in from doing any outdoor workouts this spring.  The weather is so beautiful here in California, you’d think it never snows.  But it does (not where I live, but a couple hours drive away : )
