Let me just apologize now to my snowed in friends, but spring is definitely here!!  Please don’t send hate mail.  Winking smile

I already busted out my flip flops, tank tops and got my first sunburn of the season.  Oops.

5 Day Weather Forecast for Mountain View

Yesterday I took Bam for a nice long walk.  We don’t walk every day, but he get’s a lot of outside time in the big community backyard.  My little buddy loves to be outside as much as I do.



Then gave Mr pink skin Mc grumpy pants a bath.  He was thrilled. 


I also made a fresh fruit salad with watermelon, cantaloupe & grapes.  Yeah, we’re really not into the whole eat local thing.  I’m okay with this.


I completed day 2 3X40 hip hikes right before dinner.  Working out on a full stomach is so not fun.  I did 4 squat jumps and called it quits.  Ha!  Dang, that’s hard. 


When it’s this nice outside, I have a hard time sitting still.  I’m okay with this too.


All of this warm sunshiny (<-did I just make up a new word?) weather has me itching to race, so I thought I’d update you guys on my current spring race schedule. 

An opportunity to run my first post injury half marathon came up and I couldn’t turn it down.  I’ll be doing the San Luis Obispo half marathon on April 7th!!  I’m stoked this pretty lady will be running the marathon.  Plus Dean Karnazes will be running it too.  It’s pretty much going to be a party if I make as long as I make it to the finish line alive.

Saint Patrick’s day I’ll be rocking my lucky Pro Compression socks while running the 10K with the pretty girl.  I’ve never ran this race, but I love Santa Cruz and most of the course is next to my happy place, the beach so I’m stoked to do this race!

In May I’ll be doing the California Classic Weekend 35 mile ride & run a half marathon the following day.  This is one of my favorite races with an awesome course.  The half marathon course takes you through the zoo!  Plus I get to go home and visit friends & family.  Guess it’s time I start training on my bike, uh.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have 8 miles to run this morning.  Let’s hope this mad case of DOMS loosens up or I’m in for a brutal run.  Oh well, there’s always promises of ice cold coffee after and we all know that makes everything better.

Anyone running any of these races?

What’s on your race schedule?

What is the first thing you do when the weather warms up?

Flip flops & tank tops here!

  1. I don’t hate you – however I am 12000% jealous. As I look out my window I see at least 5 feet of snow and as I drove into work today it was -12 not ever considering the windchill!

    I can’t wait to be able to get outside.

  2. I love that you called Bam Mr. Pinkskin. I just started a blog and named it after my jack Russell who I call Eddy Pinkbelly.

    It’s in the 80s here in Texas and we are supposed to be in the low 90s by the end of the week.

    My next race is April 28th, the Nike Women’s Half in DC.
    Love your blog!

  3. I agree. We got some good weather going on here 🙂 Going to get a short run in today.

    Damn, forgot about the she is beautiful 10k. I wonder if it’s sold out already. I have an 11 miler planned for this weekend . . .

    Running the RnR SF on April 7th. Planning a few more races over the summer to 🙂 But that California Classic sounds intense but like a lot of fun!!

    I don my flip flops, tank tops and smear on the sun screen 🙂 Loving the sun.

  4. It’s supposed to be warm(ish) here this week (like 60’s), but it still feels cold and windy. I have a half marathon coming up this weekend (Rock and Roll USA) and then the Marine Corps 17.75K the following weekend…then nothing until June!

  5. I can’t hate you because we’re having record highs! It was 73 here yesterday and today we might set a new record at 82! Cannot wait. After two crazy snow storm the last of couple weeks, this is exciting!

    Is that purple top you have on a Costco tank?

    My daughter and I are running a diva race later this month. Should be a lot of fun!

    • I’m so happy it’s warming up for you!! Yep, that’s a Costco tank. I love them.
      I seriously can’t wait to read about your race with your daughter. They are one of my favorites to read. Good luck!

  6. Haha that is exactly how I felt when I announce our sunny weather to a friend going to school back east…not sorry!
    Anyways, the gorgeous race this weekend is going to rock, and I didn’t realize you had a half coming up that is awesome! Oh, and if I see one more picture of your adorable dog I might come have to come steal him. 😉

    • I seriously can’t wait to meet your pretty face. Oh and to run of course. You’re welcome to come hang out with us anytime friend. 🙂
