A Beautiful Day!

The flowered trees are blooming. The temperature is nice. The sun blessed us with its warm and bright presence. Ah, Spring is FINALLY here!
Today was a GORGEOUS day and I took FULL advantage of it. I started the morning off with some of the McGhee Fitter and Finer Challengers (and son) at the Publix 5 K Run. It was a beautiful morning, and I didn't do too shabby with my race time. We had a really good time.
The Publix 5 K kicked off tomorrow's ING Georgia Half and Full Marathon race. I ran the Half Marathon last year. I am happy to have checked that box (training was tough and not conducisve to a strength traingin regime, which I NEED) and am thrilled to just run short races here and there because these races are just one small part of my overall fitness plan. Save the Date: May 1st, Tri-Cities 10K/5K Run/Walk; College Park/East Point/Hapeville
After a great post-race breakfast at my favorite spot Thumbs Up (I had the tamari marinated tofu and veggies-yum! The peach perserve was OFF THE CHAIN!), I took a cat nap, did a little house work, and then HIT THE TENNIS COURTS with some of my teammates/fellow Fitter and Finer Challengers. We had a great time and took full advantage of the great weather (tomorrow's match is looking a little sketchy due to 90% chance of showers. arrgghh).
After tennis, I enjoyed a nice dinner with some girlfriends at my other favorite spot: Bhojanic (I'm still staying away from the tasty, but high calorie Mango Lassie I use always to enjoy)! We always have a great time cutting up--lots of laughter ALWAYS!
Just an AWESOME day!
I'm tired, but I am so glad that I enjoyed today to the Fullest with Fitness, Friends, and Fun!
