This was my birthday weekend and it was just great! Sunny, warm, and very spring-like. This birthday had a decidedly fitness flavor to it - starting off Saturday with a fartlek run of just over 10 miles with some faster segments built in. Sunday morning, Spencer ran his first 5k race, with me by his side. He worked hard and did a great job on the hilly cross country course, finishing in under 36 minutes. Later that day, Jake's "special birthday workout" involved a set of 42 (my new age!) sumo deadlifts at 135 lbs, which I pulled off (or should I say up) without too much difficulty.

I'm sure a lot happier with where I am this birthday than last!
