Weekly Roundup - April 13th

Spring has finally come to North Carolina and the running capris and long sleeve shirts and jackets have been packed away.  However, after such a bad winter, I have kept a couple clothing items at the ready just in case. We had a little break this week spending a day in Charleston and a few days at Hilton Head.  The weather was glorious and some rest and relaxation was greatly needed.  I came home refreshed and ready to tackle a long run today.

I am joining some of the girls from my group Without Limits for an 8 mile run. They have been so incredibly supportive since my dog bite injury and the aftermath.  It will also be nice to get out of my own neighborhood and run down at Wrightsville Beach!

Next Sunday is Easter and last year I made a running basket for Christine.  Here are the details if you are interested in making a special basket for your favorite runner!

We both had pretty good weeks and hopefully next week will be even better!  Tell us what you are doing to enjoy springtime!
