Has Spring Finally Sprung?

Posted by CheapRunnerMike
Has the weather finally turned?  Has Spring finally sprung?  This week we have seen some signs that yes indeed Spring is here.  While still a little too early to be sure (just take a look at the weekend forecast), it does appear that the running tights can get packed away.  There have already been a few runs in shorts and tees, but on yesterday's 10K through up the university I saw my first real sign that the weather was actually improving...I was sweating.  What a glorious feeling!
A few other things are attempting to herald in the season, such as my first ballgame of the year.  Here's a peek at yet another pair of shoes I own, Nike Keystone Baseball spikes...complete with fresh infield dust.

My slo-pitch team moved up a division this year after winning the championship last season.  We played our first game last night (against my little brother's team) and were quickly made aware that things wouldn't be quite as easy this time around as we were mercied in the first game.  We held tough in the second game of the doubleheader though, and staged a final inning comeback to steal a split.
With the weather getting better it also means that I can take my bike off of the trainer and start using it for the office commute.  Time for a quick tune up to get it road and race worthy...

Let's get you off of there!

So with the outdoor riding about to begin it will also soon be time to think about getting back in the water so I am ready for Triathlon season.  CheapRunnerMichelle and I have settled on a few races we will be doing this year, the first of which will be the Guelph Lakes Triathlon, where I will be looking to get myself another one of these...

Enjoy your weekend folks!
