2 weeks, “Spot”, Giveaway Winners

Anyone else still feeling the effects of a mountain of food eaten on Easter?

Yeah, me too.

It was a wonderful day of celebration, and I very much welcomed the end of my Lenten abstinence from chocolate. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also had an enjoyable, but short Easter morning run before the flurry of farm work, church, and family began.

I thought I’d share some Easter photos as this week’s spot.

The last two photos, respectively, are Calvin and JR and my sister-in-law and her husband. I didn’t get any other family pictures because everyone seemed vehemently opposed to being photographed.

I gave in, but it’s kind of a bummer because I have few photos from holidays the past several years. Next time!

Moving on, I do have something exciting to share before I give the weekly running run down….

My winners!

The Gu & stuff giveaway was a definite success; thanks to everyone who commented and told me about your upcoming race plans. I truly wish you all the best with your running, biking, and/or swimming goals!

As promised, I’ve randomly (thanks to random.org) chosen two winners.

#13 and #25

    19 miles is still a great week of running! Glad your foot is feeling better, that is probably a big relief!

    I gave up chocolate too! Now to find balance with it… ๐Ÿ™‚ Looks like you’re well prepared for your race, enjoy the taper!

    I *definitely* overdid the chocolate today and am dealing with some resurgent cravings today because of it….but I’m going to try to keep my “no sweets except on Sunday” thing going since I was on a good roll.

    Happy Easter!

  4. I agree with Jena – 19 miles is nothing to scoff at. And glad your foot is feeling better. I was thinking about you yesterday, when my foot was hurting on my 3 miler. Hopefully it goes away quickly like yours.
