Wordless about Weather this Wednesday

First thank you so much for your honest responses to my post the other day! I know it is going to take time but we will get to a place that works for both of us! Thank you for your suggestions!!! You guys rock!

Ok so let me tell you something that doesn't quite rock....the weather. No April Fools here in New England we have a snow storm forcasted for Friday!!! This has left me wordless......well not for long! I am trying to soak up the sun today and am taking Em for a run to the park this afternoon. Maybe we should run to the beach since we may never see it! I'm so thankful that she loves to be outside! The only good side of snow in April is that it doesn't last long! My feeble attempt at being positive about a winter that won't end. One of my first graders has been asking me how many days until Spring....I tried to explain the whole weather thing to him but finally ended with, "Good question!"

This is one of the big challenges of Spring racing just never know about the weather. I know I've told my story before of the Noreaster that was my Boston Marathon experience with 30 degrees at the finish and how it was 80 degrees the next year. You just never know! I'm hoping the weather will rebound for my 5k this Saturday so Em and I can run together as Team Blue......working on the outfits today!!!

Have a great Wednesday and soak in some sun!!!


  1. This NE weather is really crazy isn't it?!? I couldn't believe it when I heard the weatherman say snow for Friday! Hope all is clear for your race - can't wait to see the outfits :)

  2. Yikes! that is some serious weather! The weather is kind of playing tricks here in the South too. This past weekend at my race Saturday in the 80's Sun. race day in the 40's!?!? Crazy. Sounds like you are making the best of it. Can't wait to see the outfits! how about a little sneak peak?

  3. I was at a group run on Saturday, it was 18 degrees! My next race is early May, I'm so afraid that spring is going to skip us, and race day it will be scorching hot!

  4. I have a race up here (NH) on sunday. hoping that the roads aren't to bad. can you believe this weather. we are supposed to get up to 12 inches of snow. YUK!!!

  5. ugh, remember the HUGE blizzard on April fool's day like 16 or so years ago?? yuck!!!!! Last year we were already getting green leaves on trees at this time. I've been seeing some buds lately tho, a small glimmer of hope!
