Spring is definitely my favorite season. After the long slumber of winter, spring brings chirping birds, luscious green grass, and sunny skies.
In 55 degree temp – we did 7.2 miles in 62 miles. I feel like we are being rewarded for all of our hard, agonizing runs in this past winter. I love running in shorts! I forgot how liberating it feels.
I love many things about Spring but fresh/locally grown veggies and fruits are my favorite part. I can’t wait till I can find these at a local farmer’s market (probably about a month before fm’s open in the North):
4. Baby Artichokes
While you can get any of these year around at your local supermarket (and I do – primarily spinach), nothing compares to the taste of a strawberry that was picked a few days ago from a farmer who you know.
Dang – I wish I wasn’t abstaining from alcohol until after the marathon because one of my favorite spring time treats is Negro Modelo beer. Honestly, give me a bottle of the beer, a lime, and some sun – I’m content for an afternoon.
Come on – let’s hear it for Farmer’s Markets. What is your favorite food to get fresh from your farmer’s market?
