Ah, the tolerable weather is finally upon us! The past few days have been in the 70s/80s with very low humidity. I’ve been battling a bit of a head cold for the past week but I’m finally starting to feel better. I ran just over 2 miles yesterday (with a hill thrown in!) and it felt great. Can’t wait to get out more. Yeah, how often have I said that? Really hope it sticks this time. Right now my mom is training for her FIRST half marathon and I couldn’t be prouder. She’s running the Rock’n'Roll in Providence this September, and I can’t wait to be there to cheer her on!
