Thursday Thoughts


Yesterday my orchid bloomed. That's a good sign that spring is here.

What's your favorite part of spring?

sunshine, warmer weather, and the color coming back to the world.
is there anything you don't like about spring? (i.e. pollen, buzzing bees . . . )

more daylight after work...means i can stretch out those cycling commutes on the way home without having to race the sun.

More daylight is my favorite part as well. I was very happy that daylight saving time got moved up this year.

Allergies starting back up would probably be my only complaint about spring.

The way in which it becomes easier to motivate for morning runs. More road races. And the beginning of beach season!

Since you are running Boston, I recall in a book about the marathon a special orchid that they bloom just in time for the marathon in the Boston area. I don't recall the name, but seeing your post made me remember the book. Maybe you can find out about it and get one while there?

I've run 3 Bostons (2000-2002) and hope to be back next year. Right now I am training for a half-Ironman in the late summer or early fall, then my first 50 miler in December, and then my first Ironman sometime in 2008.

If you get a chance, please visit my running web site, Faithful Soles. I have a categorized and searchable Running Blog Database on there and would appreciate it if you would link your blog to it. Thanks and keep up the great training.
