MIMM (Happy Leap Year!)

Despite the fact that I could nahhhhht get up to workout this morning, I’m actually in a rather chipper mood for a Monday and totally ready to get this week underway, so I figured this happy Monday morning mood was a good excuse to bring back the Marvelous in My Monday linkup hosted by Katie.

Today is a “stolen” day! #leapyear2016

I love how Google visually interpreted this day — so stinkin’ cute! And totally prepping us for the Spring mentality (woot!).

Anyone else have the “I love any excuse to celebrate anything out-of-the-ordinary-and-cool” gene? I think I got it from my mom. I like that we have an extra day of joy in 2016, as I’ve already determined that this is going to be an amazing year for me (and hopefully you feel the same for you!).

This was a cool fun-facts read about Leap Year: 5 Things You Probably Didn’t Know.

Anyone else have an amazing weekend? It was beautiful here — Spring was really trying to rear her pretty little head — and I took advantage of it by running both mornings. Saturday was a 5.5 miler (half solo, half with the boy), and then we started off a lovely Sunday with 7-8 miles in the sunshine,

then headed to Hillsong NYC for another fantastic service.

I really love this church and am so glad to be back in the habit of going regularly, and it’s even more special to be able to go with him. ❤ I’ve been to a lot of churches in my life, and I have to say I’ve never experienced anything quite like Hillsong. It’s truly special.

We then took advantage of the 60-degree weather by walking over to the charming Bryant Park and enjoying the day for a bit. It’s so lovely to be in love in the sunshine, isn’t it?? 🙂

IMG_9066.JPGIn some positive running news, I decided to switch from my Asics to my Nike Air Zoom Fly 2s this past week to see how my legs adjusted, and I’m pretty pleased with the result. The Nikes are more flexible and minimalist and I have a softer footfall, and I feel good after a few days of running in them. I think there really is something to the whole “rotate your running sneakers” thing, for me at least. I’m bringing these to Maui with me (oh, did I mention we leave in two days?!) for some good beach running.

The Hawaiian Alphabet Has 12 Letters

Hope your Monday is marvelous, loves! ❤
