2. I saw my 6th snake of the year running yesterday. (I went for a pretty decent run the night after the concert on 2.5 hours of sleep. I think I was still quite jazzed from the concert and was loving running to songs I had just heard live.) Some years I see none and I am out there a fair amount between biking and running. I am worried this could be a "big snake" year! Yikes! I am not ready for that. I promise no pictures if it is. I'm not hanging around long enough to take one. When I do see one, I definitely get some speed work in.
3. School is winding down and I am more than ready. This week we went to the Shelburne Museum. The students loved the Ticonderoga as always and the carousel. The school teacher in the school house role played an old fashioned teacher and she scared the pants off me to say nothing of my kids. I look pretty darn good in comparison!
Bonus: Some of my on line Mother's Day shopping is coming in! I got two great shirts from LL Bean. Love them! Plus some rather expensive biking shorts. One of the ladies I bike with just got some and convinced me to give them a try. I'll let you know. Her theory was we put in enough miles on the bikes to deserve some really good padding!
