I love Spring. I love how it feels like the earth comes alive again from a long sleep. Ahh, but the blooms, the trees… They suffocate me. Somewhere along the way, I developed seasonal allergies. This year has been the worst. It has also been the wettest in years. So though I love Spring, and summer heat can be so miserable, I want to breathe again. 5 days until my 14th half marathon and my 48th overall race since 2013.
