Spring Break!!!!

Oh spring you are so close!! Today was the warmest it has been in a very long time. I absolutely loved it. The highest I saw was 62*. Awesome!!! I am so excited about spring. In honor of the beautiful weather today, Matt and I went on a 3 mile jog in SHORTS! My legs felt naked after all the running I've been doing in tights.

Speaking of jogging... Matt and I are still training for the Holy Half marathon in South Bend, IN on the campus of Notre Dame. I am definitely not a fast runner, but recently I've been enjoying it more and more. I'm super excited to see my time continuing to get better and better! A week ago Sunday, I did my long run (9 fmiles) and averaged 24 seconds a mile faster than my goal. Then the next week on a short run I probably did my fastest 3 miles ever. I'm really excited about seeing improvement. 

So Sunday's are usually our long run days, but we decided to take a break and do a day trip to Chicago. 
We hit up on the Shedd Aquarium...

...and then chowed down on some grub at Ed Debevick's.

Over all a super great way to start off spring break. The time change has also been great. I'm loving it that the sun doesn't go down until 8pm. We have also gotten to do some other fun things this week. Tuesday night we went to dinner and a movie with Nick and Taryn. Then tonight (Wednesday) we went over to some friends' house for dinner. We went to Connie and Roger's house. We got to know their daughter, Kim, and Kim's husband, James, just as we were moving from TN. Kim and James' dog, Levi was staying with Kim's parents. So Maglee and Levi were reunited and got to play in the backyard while we all ate a delicious autumn stew and cornbread. 
Maglee was more interested in licking Levi than posing for the picture. 

More fun is in store for the rest of the week and weekend. Matt's parents are coming to visit. I'll have to let you know about all the stuff we get into. 

No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.  ~Proverb
