April Runnin' Fool

I got a real good one over on my hubby today for April Fool's Day. He was madder than a wet hen before I started busting out in laughter. And I successfully avoided being the butt of any April Fool's jokes from my kids. Those of you who have ever had a mischievous 12 year old boy or impish 9 year old girl know exactly how hard that is to accomplish!!

So today I was a fool in a good way, a running fool, a smiling fool, a gearing-up-for-tri-season kind of fool. I had a great run today, the kind where everything finally comes together and feels just right. A light rain sprinkled down on me and each foot set down on the pavement in a kind of happy rhythm. My strides felt long and limber and my back felt miraculously free from the last remains of my autumn injury. And now the days are getting longer, I can run in the evening hours, which is my favorite time of all.

Happy Aprils Fool's Day to all the running fools out there...
