Rockin Refuel winner!

First–thanks to all who entered the giveaway for Rockin’ Refuel last week. I went to today to have them pick a winner, and–Tara at is it! Tara, shoot me an email and we’ll work out the details.

One giveaway down and another to go. My giveaway of a copy of Run Like a Mother doesn’t end until Friday, so make sure you get an entry (or two or three).

In other news–what an awesome weekend around the Mid-Atlantic. The temperatures were in the 70s with lovely sunshine both Sat. and Sunday. I ran 14 with my friends on Saturday in shorts. I love how a good run can set the tone for a great weekend. I also took in a college lacrosse game with my family and did a family bike ride on Sunday after getting in about 8 miles earlier in the day. Spring has sprung and I’m digging it!

The only trade-off to the warm weather is that the cherry blossoms are starting to peek out around here. I’m running the Cherry Blossom 10-miler in DC on April 11 and I suspect most of the blossoms will be gone by then. It would have been nice to have them dotting the course, but I’m so happy to have the great weather now that ‘m quite sure I’ll survive if they’re gone.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and that those who raced are happy with the results!

    I have yet to see the cherry blossoms in action. When we traveled out there several years ago (before kids), we missed them. Sounds like your weekend was wonderful!

    I too would love to see the Cherry Blossom's bloom and hopefully one day I will. What about the National marathon in DC? is it timed for the bloom? I'm not sure when that marathon is.
