It’s ON.: The May Marathon 

Welllllll ….I did it! I pulled the trigger& made the decision on my spring marathon! 

May 17th-the Inaugual Gate City Striders Marathon in Nashua New Hampshire. It’s close to me, I can sleep in my own bed the night before and I’ll be home by lunchtime! I even get to pick up my packet the day before at a store I frequent quite often. Win-Win. 

I’m so excited to run another full marathon! Obviously I want a good time, but a big part of me is pretty excited for those three hours and (hopefully not more than) 12-17 minutes that I will be  pounding that pavement. This is my bday present to me, from me! Last year, I ran two half marathons during my birthday month…this year it’s a full! I hope to do well…but in the end-I just want to run my heart out!

  

And the amenities look pretty great…

Weekend happenings….Saturday I had a terrific long run, and then I sat and admired our garden.   (Although the pollen is draining my energy like crazy..I’ve never had allergies in my life!)    

Man I just love flowers and the springtime!!!       

And a little Saturday night treat: grapefruit mojito’s with mint from our garden!   

I’m cutting this post short & sweet because my allergies are driving me crazy and I want to scratch my eyeballs out of my head! Time to hit the hay with a Benadryl!! 

I hope all you momma’s had a fantastic Mother’s Day!!!
