April in Review
I know I’m a broken record, but…
There wasn’t a ton of running this month either.
Though it was more than March and February, so hey, that’s saying something, right? Apparently, I’m going to baby step my way back into this thing.
I enjoyed the 5K I ran in DC as my first race. Even though there were a few issues with it. You can check out the recap here if you missed it.
And running past the cherry blossoms one last time made me super happy.
Since then? I’ve been out a few times for a mile here, two miles there. Nothing more than that.
And there’s been a lot of walking. Spring Break was spent walking all over DC. I think we put a minimum of 6 or 7 miles a day on the legs, and I was not going back out to run after dealing with Spring Break crowds and kids all day!
I also had some special time with my girls. My daughters have asked for walks after school together recently, so my time was spent with them rather than solo on the run.
It’s been nice; the weather has been pretty and the girls have been chatty.
I’m not complaining about that part.
But I am ready to run. Look out, May, it’s happening.
