In like a lion out like a lamb.....I am so excited that March is here!!  Happy March to you!!

First of all I want to thank Zoe at Run, Zoe, Run!. I won her Champion Gear giveaway over the weekend and it totally made my day! If you haven't checked out her blog yet I suggest that you do you won't be disappointed!

Weekend Recap
Busy, Busy, Busy!!
Friday night was my coaches meeting for No Boundaries and I was not disappointed.  There is a couple who will be helping coach, Jon and Kelly.  They host a lot of the local races here and are avid runners. Jon has run several Ultra Marathons and Kelly coaches high school cross country.
They have made "rock star" status in my head, so I was "shy" around them all night....what me shy?...for real I had sooooo many questions I wanted to ask them but I know myself well enough that when I get nervous it is best to keep my mouth shut! One time I told my boss's grown son that he was bow legged.... just in passing conversation...I say very inappropriate things when I'm nervous and then laugh uncontrollably loud.  Thankfully, I will be seeing a lot of them in the next 10 weeks so I will have plenty of opportunity to pick their brains about running.

Saturday from 10am-2pm, I had a seminar at church that rocked my world! Every now and then I have to stir myself up and re-ignite that fire for God. A relationship with God is like any other relationship, if you don't stir it up every now and then it fizzles out and looses it's fire!  The guy who did the seminar David Dixon has been an evangelist for 29yrs and has a fire that is so refreshing to be around.  It just rubs off on you when your around him.  He is real , he loves the Lord, and he does what God says to do regardless of what people think or say.  I am determined to have that boldness that the word of God says I can have in Ephesians 3:12(AMP)".....when we trust in Him, we're free to say whatever needs to be said, bold to go wherever we need to go...."

The rest of the day Saturday I spent playing with the boys.  Hubby's recliner finally came in and so we used the humongous box that it came in to make a fort. We played in the fort for a few hours, ate some pizza and watched Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
BTW-this is Hubby's new recliner...he has waited 10 years for this!! 

I love when my crazy schedule allows time to just play and be goofy with the boys. They are growing so fast and I don't want to miss anything.  I have some silly boys...especially little prince #3! He has found my "accessories" drawer and is obsessed with it!

Little Prince-Accessorized! 

Sunday we have two church services one in the morning and one in the evening. Both services were great.   In between services I managed to get in 5 miles on the treadmill and the Jillian Michael's Trouble Zone workout while the kids napped.
Speaking of nap....I could use one right about now.

Hubby works for British Petroleum and will be working "turnaround". It happens every year at this time....not sure what it is exactly...just know he will be working Mon-Sat, 5am-6pm. So pretty much we won't see him very much until May. Plus, baseball season just started for Prince #1 & #2.  I am getting ready to kick my schedule into overdrive.  Hubby helps out A LOT and is totally hands on with the boys and around the house, so taking him out of the equation for a couple months is serious.

5 days and counting till I try for a 5k PR. Saturday's "On Your Mark 5k" will officially kick of the race season and I want to bring it in with a bang.  My goal is sub 25min. It will be the first race for my friend Angie and I know she will rock it too!!

Currently, as I am writing this there is a man in my home repairing little Prince #1's room from the water damage. Woot, Woot!!! Love that little guy but can't wait for him to have his room back!

What was the most exciting thing you did over the weekend?

What a busy weekend you had!! How do you get it all done? My husband would love a new recliner, his is rather old and ratty and he talks about getting a new one all the time.

Our weekend was busy too. Dinner out (which hasn't been done in awhile), a birthday party and a hockey party were enough for me.

oh my goodness what a busy weekend! I have two little princesses so we are all about the accessories around here! I also have a husband who works for a power company and when his schedules get like that it makes me want to cry :( But, I am sure being so busy it will fly by!! Good luck this weekend, I run my first 5k this weekend too!!!

Hi April,
Boy I have to hand it to you...it is hard to get workouts in with little ones! You are doing a great job!! I think it is great that you have a few brains to pick about running:) I love asking questions and getting advice from other runners. I am sure that you will do awesome at your 5k:) I will be waiting for your 5k PR race report!! I hope that you have a wonderful week April:)

Hope you kick butt at your 5k! Good luck!

Your littlest one is so cute - love the accessories! :)

Most exciting for me was...hmm...probably just being thrilled that my husband's back is starting to feel better. He might not be able to sleep in bed yet, but he IS getting back to his more happy-go-lucky self, which is a wonderful thing. Yay!

I had the weekend from hell being sick and all so enough of that. Fort boxes are the best! Have fun at your race!
