  1. Yikes! I don’t like to hear of crazy maniac drivers near you!
    I do like to hear about cinnamon french toast bagels. Sounds really, really good.

    Congrats on all the swimming, setting a record is always fun! I am actually hoping to get back into swimming this month so hopefully you can be my motivation. I haven’t swam laps in probably 2 years, yikes!

  2. Great month of training! Love the dance video too…. So scary about the driver. My biggest fear out there. I try to run on the sidewalk as much as possible even though it’s not the best place to run. However, even then you have risk. I find when you are crossing over a road and someone coming out to turn left, they don’t bother looking right. I always think to myself, what if this was a child on a bike on the sidewalk.. They would just keep going. crazy really. Glad you are all safe.

  3. Awesome month Marlene!

    I’m looking forward to Spring. I hope we will have a few of the first Spring days this month. I love how nature is making a new start in Spring, especially during runs, so much more to see.

  4. AWESOME February, Marlene! You never cease to inspire. 🙂 I’m officially getting caught up on the blog world after a crazy 2 weeks mostly away. It looks like I missed a lot!
