The Calendar Claims Spring Has Sprung

Yesterday, in fact heralded in the coldest start of Spring I can recall since moving to the mid west.
Of course, that's not saying much, as I can hardly remember what I did yesterday.

Even with the cold mornings, I can feel Spring's emergence - somehow, the air feels different - not as cold and biting. There's a bit of warmth permeating its way in.

It's Friday and time for some random stuff from my week:

1. March Madness has started - and change can be difficult for those entering the office pool (which I run). I sent out an email detailing the change that the bracket deadline had moved up from the normal, Thursday tip off time of 11:00 CST to midnight, 11 hours earlier. I've learned who the procrastinators are in the office, and yes, they are all managers. They also don't read their email messages thoroughly....

2. It was a good week for Hubby - he executed a successful meeting on Wednesday with our company's CEO during our annual Safety Day Event.

3. Spring Break has started and the mass exodus from town has started. Most of my friends are escaping to warmer climes. Lucky me, I get to stay in town...

4. The song, The Call, by Regina Spektor is stuck in my head.

It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word
And then that word grew louder and louder
'Til it was a battle cry
I'll come back when you call me
No need to say goodbye
The best part of this song comes after the second verse - with french horns leading the way, the orchestra builds and replaces the traditional bridge.

5. I found a great collection of Running Quotes. Some of my favorites:
The reason we race isn’t so much to beat each other,… but to be with each other. -Christopher McDougall
I run because it’s so symbolic of life. You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can’t. But then you find your inner strength, and realize you’re capable of so much more than you thought. -Arthur Blank

Another pair of "bookend" iPhone photos taken yesterday. I call them bookend photos as one was taken at sunrise and the other at sunset.

Along Thursday's Run, at mile 5. No wind means a rare reflection on the waters.

At sunset, the biggest ball of fire sunk slowly into the earth. I happened to be driving directly into it.

Sounds as though you are having a busy start to your spring even if it is still a little cold! Hope that it warms up soon for you. xx

Glad that you took time in your morning run to get a shot of that sunrise. I think some of your spring breakers have invade Breckenridge!

Our local Spring Break is coming in a couple of weeks. I am looking forward to everybody leaving town, it will be so nice and quiet.

Lovely shots Shirley... I'm not coordinated enough to take any while I'm in motion. Lol. Have a great weekend!

The management are ALWAYS the procrastinators dragging their feet. It was my husband's biggest beef of the corporate world.

Love a good sun set - nothing beats it (besides a good sun rise, haha)! :-)
