Here is a picture I snapped the other day -
Care to wager a guess on how many eggs I hard-boiled and we dyed? The answer is 72. Six dozen. That's a lot of eggs! We had fun with it though (and I have no doubt that they will get eaten in no time!). :)

That big orange bowl is filled with M&Ms, Hershey kisses, etc. and the big green bowl is filled with all kinds of jelly beans (Josh's very favorite).
For the record, I haven't had a single piece of candy, and don't plan on having any. I am really focusing on putting quality food into my body with all the training I am doing. I figure it doesn't make a lot of sense to work so hard to run well and get into great shape and then eat a bunch of junk. And it is easier for me to not have any than to try and just have a little - one jelly bean turns into one handful, which turns into three handfuls, etc. etc. I am leaving it all alone, which really hasn't been very hard.
Here is a pic of my awesome kids from right after church today.
Aren't they gorgeous? I just wish they would stop growing up so dang fast.
This morning I got up early and did a 20 miler and it was another really, really good run. It was just a steady run at a very comfortable pace - no fast miles (those runs are coming though). It was one of those runs though were I felt like I could run all day - my energy was really good, nothing was sore or overly tired, everything felt great, and I really enjoyed myself. It was a gorgeous morning and an awesome start to the day.
I am looking forward to another great week of running and a lot of fun with Josh and the kids. Yay for Spring!! I hope you all had a very Happy Easter! More soon. :)
