Early crocuses peeking out from the lavender brush.
And speaking of peek, At the beginning of this week, I signed up for the Pike's Peek 10K on April 29th. At baseline, I'm running a 15 minute mile (a little embarrassing yes, but I mentioned accountability - I'm going to be totally honest about all this!). My goal is to run the race at a 12 minute mile. I've done this or even better, but never for more than a distance of 4 miles (a 10K is 6.2 miles). The website says that if you run at a 13 minute mile or slower, then at some point, they will need to re-open the street and make you move to the sidewalk. Talk about embarrassing. If I could just avoid being in that group, I'd be really pleased. I think this race is a good goal to work towards. We'll see how it goes!
My cold this week did not provide a good start as I did no running, unless you count running to Fuddrucker's for chili cheese fries. :(
