A Little Bit of Sunshine

I've got all sorts of sunshine to share with you. This morning's early run was headlamp free - after a long, long winter of dark mornings, I can finally see the end. Of course, the fact that I couldn't get myself out of bed until 10 minutes later than usual might have had something to do with it. But still, it was light out! And the sun has been warm enough during the day that there are slush and puddles in the road. All good signs that spring may actually be on its way.

Another bit of sunshine: I was gifted with the Sunshine Award by MCM Mama and Katie. Thanks ladies! I'd like to pass the award on to some of my favorite fellow mom bloggers:

Fellow Minnesota moms: Melissa, Carly, and Julie

And some other great mom runners: D10, JoyRun, Jess, and Heather

And one great mom-to-be: Cross Country Squared

Today is my Friday! We are heading up north tomorrow night for a weekend at the cabin with some friends. The guys are ice fishing, while my friend Erin and I are planning on snowshoeing to Canada and doing a little scrapbooking. I took tomorrow off so I could get my long run in before go - I have priorities.

Snow shoeing sounds like an activity that should involve alcohol.
