That's just a very small portion of what all has been going on this past month. Life is good! 

Having a great time at the Lake Sammamish Half! Perfect weather and perfect run!
I started off this race thinking that I would run an easy 11:30 the whole time in preparation for the Hot Chocolate 15k the next day, that didn't last long. The weather was too nice to waste! I split off from the pacers and just had fun :D
11:30 Pacer for the Hot Chocolate 15k Seattle with Beast Pacing!
I had an amazing opportunity to pace with Beast Pacing once again at the Hot Chocolate 15k. I had a blast even if I didn't have anyone following me during the race. At least I kept perfect time!
Cherry Blossom run with SGLRG!
I have been casually a part of SGLRG for a couple of years now but haven't really been able to make the MeetUps whether it from my work schedule or just living too far away. Now that I live just a couple of miles away, no excuses not to join in on the fun! This run was through Univeristy of Washington's campus to look at the beautiful Cherry Blossoms! 
I was the blue bunny in the Beat the Bunny 5k
I was asked to be one of the bunnies at the Beat the Bunny 5k this year. I felt so honored to be asked! It was a really hard gig (when it came to the actual running) but it was so much fun to hang out with a bunch of active kids! As you can see a couple of other mascots decided to join in on the fun as well.
Some friends and I ran on the Iron Horse trail for 13 ish miles, such a great run!
We are all training for something, so we decided to take a field trip! The Iron Horse trail is over 100 miles long but we just ran 13 miles of it. Such a beautiful trail and it's an easy run! 

My new "baby"! So excited to use this new watch!
Banana cream pie for Pi Day! Sooooo goooood! 
New furniture from Ikea for my new apartment! Ikea owns me now...
Just a little bit of catch up, now that I am moved and settled in, I hope I can post more often. 
Happy happy day! Keep on running!
