Spring Fever!

by Kris Pitcher

Sunshine, snow, and rain all in one day means spring is on the way! I hope. I hope desperately. I have come down with spring fever. It's going around, I'm not the only one who has it...seems everyone I talk to is ready. Bring on spring!

"An optimist is the human personification of spring." - Susan J. Bissonette

There is hope in optimism. And optimism breeds hope. I am certainly looking forward to a few things on the calendar this spring. One way to instill a bit of hope is to have a little something to look forward to. For some it's a trip, for others it might be something they are training for. 

Having a goal gives us purpose to work toward. And spring is the perfect time to look for an event. I've been inspired lately by people who find 5K races in the cities in which they travel to. How smart are they? What a great way to see a city! And you don't have to run, you can walk. 

Here are a few easy ways to find events in any state.

And finally for those of us who truly are's almost baseball season, and teams are practicing in sunny Arizona!

Branch out of your comfort zone and commit yourself to a 5K fun run or a mini triathlon in your own area or in an area you plan to travel to. It might just give you something to look forward to, and to train for. Happy spring!
