Sunday - I got to meet Carolyn in Colorado! 

Monday - 4.09 went down a trail I saw when we were walking to the grocery store Saturday.  It had a break for a while, but most of it was lovely and along the south platte river.  Some icy spots still on the path, but not too bad.  Got to meet Carolyn for lunch.  She really inspired me so much when I was having to get up early and run.  I hope she will start running again with me.

Tuesday - I just stayed inside and felt sorry for myself today.  Snow, cold, no house, blah blah blah - a blah day.

Wednesday - It was snowing but I knew I needed to get out since I'd spent Tuesday inside all day that doing that didn't help me one bit.  I went out for a walk but wore my running shoes because there was snow out and I needed my regular shoes to be dry the rest of the day.  I walked .75 and then decided to try a slow jog in my jeans.  It wasn't as bad as I imagined it might be- ended up with  4.25 miles total - 3.5 running.

Thursday - Ran 3.8 with MR on the river trail

Friday - went for a 5 mile walk with MR to Walmart and back for a bag of salad.

Saturday - Ran 7.33 miles through the neighborhoods around the hotel and then caught up with the river trail to run back.  Lots of people on bikes, a couple other runners.  Almost all the snow on the trail is melted- just a couple icy patches left in the shady spots.

Sunday - moved our stuff into the moving van, then back out of the moving van - and unpacked in our new apartment.  Best feeling in the world to have 4 walls of my own again.

Monday - went for a bike ride with MR.  So many trails to ride around here it's awesome.

Tuesday - 3.26 miles.  This apartment complex seems to be on top of a hill.  No matter which way I go, I have to finish climbing uphill.  I hate uphill.  But I got to go to a RS b-day party with CinC and that was totally awesome.  

Thursday - 5 ish miles on the treadmill.  

Friday - 6 miles exploring a different path that ended up connecting to the bike trail from Monday.  

Saturday - 9.7 miles on the bike with MR.  Took a trail out to the dam.  So many people out on bikes and running.  It's great to see an active community like this.
