No spring here yet. :evil: Ripping out carpet in our "sun" room (that is not very sunny these days), then hopefully a long run.

7km for me nice and easy. I wanted to ride my bike to rehearsal but it was raining... I'm not made of sugar except when it comes to biking in the rain! I don't like the poopypants look it causes, haha.
