Good morning! I see an extra sleepy week in the future. Who would think that losing an hour of sleep could be that hard!? Since it’s been so long since I’ve posted (whoops) I thought I would do a little recap on the fun that’s been happening these last few weeks of winter. I think it’s safe to say that it’s officially on its way out here in Maine! It’s been a fun few weeks of a good mix between squeezing some wintery activities in and taking advantage of these beautiful warm temps! Here’s some fun things that have happened recently:
My Friend Sarah and I did this workout at the track on the first day that it was just too sunny and beautiful to be inside at the Y.
Dustin’s 30th Birthday Party
My friend Meghan threw an awesome surprise birthday party for her boyfriend Dustin at Oxbow Brewing. It was a great night with friends and good beer and even though it doesn’t look like Dustin is having fun in this picture it was a blast.
Early Season Road Biking
I’ve definitely been taking advantage of some warm sunny weekends to get outside and put some miles in on the bike. There have been a couple of surprisingly fast rides, I got my first Strava segment (on a popular one), and a brutally windy ride that ended with me purchasing girl scout cookies.
Rosemont Bakery Hot Cross Buns
There was one day it was very nice in the morning so I took a quick walk and ended up at Rosemont Bakery to get a hot cross bun. They sell them during lent and they’re one of my favorite treats that come from Rosemont! (Extra delicious when you can walk through capisic park and eat them in the sunshine)
Ice Skating in Casco
Last weekend we went up to Casco (North of Sebago) and did some nordic skating on a lake. I sort of thought it was too warm for skating at this point but was reassured by the fact that there were other people there doing the same.
Sunday River on a Tuesday
Last Tuesday Angus and I took the day off and headed north to Sunday River. It was a beautiful spring skiing day that we got to enjoy without the crowds that flood that place on the weekend!
The lack of snow and warmer temps also mean that I’ve been able to start getting some running miles in. Wednesday it was 70 degrees. Shorts, T-shirt, awesome. I even signed up for my first 5k of the year- the Urban Runoff on April 23rd!
