The end of my favorite month!

March is my favorite month for a few reasons. My birthday is in March, the days get significantly longer, the weather gets significantly warmer, and I love all of the flowers blooming everywhere. March seemed to fly by this year.

  1. Refrain from using the snooze button- Again no snoozing, but twice I reset the alarm to skip my workout... Allergies hit me hard the week of peak cherry blossom bloom.
  2. Run at least 6 races- Two down. I ran the St. Patrick's Day 8K in March.
  3. Track what I eat and when I work out-  I've gotten a little more lax on tracking what I eat on special occasions, but mostly I've been good.
  4. Knit something new-  Spent one lunch break teaching some coworkers how to cast on... this one might need the most work.
  5. Travel somewhere new- Does the 9:30 Club count? On Saturday I ran a stretch of Rock Creek Park trail that I hadn't seen before. Running along the river and next to the Kennedy Center just made me smile.
  6. Be friendlier to strangers- Still working on this one, no big failures or successes. 


  1. March is a great month and it certainly looks like you made the best of the weather and longer days! My allergies are still going bananas, hope you have found some relief. What races are you thinking about in the future? Happy belated birthday!

    1. Thanks! I may run one with work in June, but currently I'm not registered for any more. Are there any must runs in the DC area?

  2. Do you consider any tulips you see your birthday tulips? I think any new place counts regardless of distance.

    1. Yes I have been! Also most daffodils. I'll go with your definition of new place.


Comments are awesome!
