First Day of Spring!

Heres a little Spring Trivia to start off the season:

What are the two most popular spring activities?

Go ahead take a guess!

So I woke up bright and early this morning in preparation for the "Hooray Spring Six Miler" that the Miss RunningLaur was putting on. I wanted to run outside on my favorite trail since it was so nice outside. I went a little camera happy documenting this monuments day (WINTER IS GONE!).


Driving to the trial. Do you see any clouds? Good. I dont either, thats because its SPRING!


Wait, I think I may see one...oh nope, its spring.

Stopped at a red light, I get behind THIS guy who drives surprisingly slow considering he is "z boss"


Here is my reaction to this:


Finally i get to my trial. Just look how perfect of a day it was!


As you can see on the right there is a small skate park that I run by. Well, today I was running by and there were two little kids on bikes. They were MAYBE 14, so I didnt really think anything of it as I ran by. I noticed that they were watching me as I ran by though so I paused my IPOD, but kept it in my ears so they didnt think I could here. One of the boys said to the other "wait a second, she has a nice butt and I'm trying to enjoy it". hahahaha. I turned around and waved as I kept running by.


More of the gorgeous spring day.

Done with my run, getting a refresher with my lovely water bottle courtesy of Emily.

I used the stopwatch on my ipod and clocked the 6 miles in 1:05:43. I walked some it because there are some ROUGH hills on the trial.

When I got home I fixed up a nice lunch complete with peanut butter, bananas, blueberries, and apples. WOAH! fruit overload. For some reason I always eat all my fruits for lunch and all my veggies for dinner. I dont know why I have that stereotype.


All grilled up and gooey and melty. YUM!

Ok now its time to watch some college basketball. GO BUCS!

Hope everyone is having a great start to spring and the weekend! Lots of Love, <3 Ems.

Too funny girl!! I have been meaning to tell you how amazed I am at your progress in running!! One minute I was looking on your blog and it said you were in training for a 10k and then the next time I logged on you had completed it. WOW!
Running is pretty much amazing isn't it? How fast do you think you are going per mile? I have great endurance but can be soooo Slooooow sometimes!
Love and hugs!

Your team almost won, my husband was saying that Pitt didn't play very well at all.
It looks like a beautiful place to run!
I love cottage cheese on top of toast with jelly--have you ever tried the Cottage cheese doubles?
You will be one HOT model tomorrow! I know you will have a great time.

Hahaha, you probably made those kids' day! I do the same thing with my iPod too just to see what people say when they don't think I can hear them. It's always so funny!

I hope you were able to fully enjoy your lovely spring day!
