AM: Three mile walk/jog around the neighborhood. Cool, clear, beautiful. Saving my run for later but I just had to get outside.

PM: Ran a super easy 2 miles and then stopped for a few minutes of stretching. Then I ran 9 miles around Sugar House Park @ 7:20 pace, dodging the springtime crowds the whole way.

Lots of tulips coming up around our neighborhood. I'm betting that's never happened in early February.

It's nuts Allie! My kids are in their bathing suits now having a squirt gun fight with other kids in our yard.

Seems so odd! We pulled a teeter totter out of the shed and kids were outside having a picnic on a blanket. I noticed the tulips at my in-law's house last night as well.
