May is here and I am excited for a couple of reasons.
+ I am flying home in a couple of days and I am SO excited to see my family. It’s my niece’s (and god-daughter’ s) first communion and I am so thrilled that I can be there for that… even though my trip is a little shorter than I originally anticipated. I am telling you, vacation days in this country (or lack thereof) are no joke if most of your family and friends live 6000 miles away.
+ It’s J’s and my anniversary in May. We’ll have been married for 11 years by the end of this month. It’s crazy to think about how fast times goes by.
+ I’ll be running a progressive half marathon series this month. It sounds more impressive than it actually is. One of my friends invited me to do it with her and her running club, Run to the Pub. Well, unfortunately, she lives in a different state, but in the spirit of motivation and community, I joined the ‘virtual run option’. We’ll be running 3.3 miles every week for a total of 13.1 at the end of the month. It’s just something that I do for a little motivation. I will (try to) keep up my half marathon training while I am away as well.
+ I am also signed up for a 10k a few days after I get back from Germany with my friend Susi. I hope the jet lag will be gentle on me.
+ I have a few more books lined up for this month and I am looking forward to some time off. I haven’t really had any time off since my parents’ visit last fall.
+ When I get back, I want to go back to the Farmers Market again. I’ve been putting it off and I need to get back into the habit. Do you have a Farmers Market close by? Do you go every week?
What’s going on with you in May?
