Today was a beautiful spring like day in Northern Virginia! Man — I can taste spring and can’t wait. It is my rest day and I am forcing myself to take it easy –I keep hearing about over training and burn out. I love it so much and am so excited to try new things and practice the new stuff I have learned that it’s hard for me to keep away.

This is the time of the year when info about local races is starting to hit. It seems to me this year that there are more than ever — or maybe I am just on too many email lists. Here are a few to note in the local No VA/DC area:
