“Spring – rejuvenation, rebirth, everything’s blooming. All that crap.”

I don’t particularly like spring. Winter is my favorite season and I kind of hate to see it come to an end. But mostly, I don’t like spring because the sloppy weather means Burton has to go instantly into the tub after every run.


That’s a good day.

The upside is, first day of spring means it’s March, and there’s a lot of good stuff that comes with that. Daylight Saving Time ends, 311 day, and it’s the best time to go snowboarding. Spring aside, there are plenty of great things about March.

In the spirit of embracing the new season, I’m sharing 7 of my favorite blogs from spring seasons of the past. Why 7? March is also the month of St. Patrick’s day, which means everything green and lucky. So here they are, the Lucky 7 of springtime blogs.

1. Embracing the Taper (March 2016)
Last year, my pre-Boston Marathon taper was the best part of my training.

2. The Dreaded Taper (April 2014)
You’ll understand the irony of the above blog when you read this one, with my true feelings about tapering.

3. So You Ran a Marathon – Now What? (May 2014)
The hardest part about running a marathon isn’t that damn dreaded taper, the intimidating 20-mile run, or the horror of bending down, well, always. It’s what to do after the marathon is over.

4. Countdown to Race Day (May 2016)
What to do the final days leading up to a race.

5. Cold-Weather Running and Layering Tips (March 2015)
Because there’s still a chance of winter this spring.

6. MLB Opening Day and Running (April 2016)
Two things I love: baseball and running. Here’s what they have in common.

7. 5 Unexpected Things Runners Get Really Good At (March 2016)
Some are good in normal life, others are not acceptable. But they’re all on point for runners.

Are you excited to see spring arrive or sadder to see winter go? Either way, what’s coming this spring that you’re looking forward to? Comment or tweet me, @runlikeagirl311 on Twitter.
