I am so sick and tired of this bitter cold and snow. I need to move someplace warm, or at least move to a home deep in the mountains with a fireplace so that I could curl up next to it and read and be warm. I know that I will not get to full-fill that dream for several years. So I guess I am stuck in this freezing cold crap we call winter in the Midwest.
I have started training again for the Cellcom Green Bay Half Marathon which is May 18. That is the first of four races that I will be doing this year. I will be doing the Warrior Dash August 2 in Johnson Creek. As well as the Fox Cities Full Marathon September 21. I am still looking for one more race a 10k so that I will have ran a 5k, 10k, half and full marathon in one year. That is my goal for this year. I have also started a beginner Spartan training program to kick me in butt and get me back to where I want to be.
Update on my virtual walking/swimming/running/biking
*Please remember that my walking/swimming/running/biking is – VIRTUAL – walk/swim/run/bike. This is a visual tool to keep me motivated while working out.*
The pictures below is a screen shots of my virtual walk. One is how far I have walked so far and the other one is the overall picture. I have been keeping track for 28 weeks now. Last week I walked 38.44 miles and I ran 8.69 for a total of 47.13 miles. My total walking/running for the virtual walk is 1,261.04 miles so far. That means I still have 2,573.69 miles to go until I get to Stonehenge.
Daily word count: The muse is screaming in my ear again, it is awesome when she does that, but it also means I am jumping from story to story.

I have set a goal of 124 books to read this year. I have read 2 so far towards that book. This week I am planning on reading Vampires of Soldier’s Cove by Jessica Macintyre, The Fine Line by Tracee Ford, Breeding Cycle by T.A. Grey and Dark Bites by Sherrilyn Kenyon.
Yes, I know this is a lot on my plate, as well as being a mother of 2 very active teenagers. I like to keep moving, in a weird way it keeps me focused. I never said I was sane. LOL
