All runners know the importance of the pit stop. When I go to my in-laws in NH in the summer, I have to create my own with water bottles set out ahead of time. But here in VB we are so lucky to have a multitude already established.
We agree that this humble looking shack is one of the best. It’s open year-round and fully loaded with amenities, including well-stocked facilities and water – with ice! It’s on a golf course with very friendly staff. In other words, they haven’t barred us from the bathroom yet. It’s also quite picturesque, especially now with blooming wisteria adorning the building:
What’s your favorite hometown pit stop? We did have to bring our own gu but we can handle that- cheers!
Spring arrived at 1:14 am today March 20, 2012. Everywhere throughout the world we are all experiencing close to equal amounts of daylight & nighttime. Here in Virginia Beach, we will have 12 hours and 9 minutes of daylight. In Anchorage, Alaska, the polar bears will experience 12 hours and 16 minutes of daylight. In Mawson, Antarctica, the penguins will experience 12 hours and 6 minutes of daylight.
What are you going to do with your 12+ hours of light? Here are a few suggestions:
- Go for a run and experience the flora
- Swap out the long sleeve t-shirts in your closet for short sleeve t-shirts
- Balance an egg. Yes, we have all heard about balancing a raw egg on the Equinox. Have you ever tried it?
With the official arrival of spring perhaps you will experience a little “Spring Fever”. Our reasons for Spring fever include:
- Increasing amount of daylight each day until the first day of Summer
- Warming temperatures (well, we have been enjoying that for a few weeks!)
- Rebirth of flora & fauna
Regardless of what you do – Do it with a SPRING in your step and make it quilt worthy!
