Ginger, Get the Popcorn

I admiit to feeling a little whiny about the temperatures here in Fort Myers hovering in the 50s and 60s so far on our trip, but I do know, and my mother keeps reminding me, that we've beaten Minnesota by 45 to 77 degrees each day. So I'm grateful for that, of course.

Yesterday we discovered that the beach is actually very pleasant at 60 and sunny, so we're headed there again today to rent a cabana and make a complete replica of Cair Paravel, the castle from Narnia.

I've also run outside a couple of times in shorts and t-shirts, which is very nice. I mean, the outfits are nice. As I'm lacking completely in muscle mass and tone, the runs themselves have been sort of a struggle. But, a few months ago, I decided I would do the Earth Day Half Marathon this year. It's only thirteen weeks away now, which is just enought time to build responsibly to the distance. I'm going to have to buckle down.
