Spring is here!

Spring has come a little early this year, but I'm not complaining.  This weekend, I did 11 miles on the Indian Creek Trail and there were signs of spring everywhere.  The magnolias are finishing up their blooming while the red and white buds are just getting started. The daffodils, snow drops and crocuses are in full bloom and the tulips aren't far behind.  The robins and cardinals have been singing every morning and it seems every single bird and mammal is out looking for a mate.

Ah, spring.

I haven't been to the trails in a few weeks and if I wasn't so busy this week, I would.  But you know what comes along with spring?  Spring Break!  On Friday, John and I are heading to Belize for 6 days and I can't wait!  We're going to try to run around the island we're staying on (it's only about 4 miles but some of it is technically Mexico so I'm not sure if we'll be able to) and I believe our hotel has free beach cruisers for guests.  There is fantastic snorkeling right off the beach we're on and it's $10/day to rent a kayak.  We have a cave-tubing trip and rain forest excursion planned, too.

Throw in a few fruity rum drinks and an ocean-side massage, and I might not come back!
