There's No Surf in Colorado Anyway

I'm home.

I'm home! I'm home! I'm home!

I haven't been this excited to be home since I came back from India.

I've spent the last 8 days in Colorado for work. 8 days is a long business trip.

It was absolutely exhausting.

I flew in to Denver early last Sunday and went straight to work. My company flew in our Country Coordinators from all over the world - India, Turkey, Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, Costa Rica, Peru - and we spent the first few days in Denver getting them acclimated to the US before heading up into the mountains where we were met by about 30 other people and stayed in a log cabin in the middle of nowhere.

The view from the cabin
Inside the cabin
As exhausting as it all was, I was able to have a lot of fun. I met a lot of people and basically have a place to stay in about 13 countries the next time the whim to jet set kicks in. We got hit with a nasty snow storm at the start of the trip...and some of our Coordinators had never seen snow! This involved a giant snowball fight in the middle of the hotel parking lot.

And, since I was in Denver...


...I took in a trip to Coors Field for the Rockies game...my 19th ballpark. Check back later this week for my review on the park! 

What I don't want to talk about is altitude. Holy goodness. I definitely had some trouble at altitude...and running at altitude was one of the hardest things I have ever done. I have a newfound respect for anyone who lives and trains in the state of Colorado...especially at 9,000 feet. 

Running hills at altitude...oof.

So I'm home...I wish I could take a week off to recover from this past week but it's back to the grind tomorrow!

Seven

I am the middle child...of 7. 

The last time all of us were together was in 2000 at my sister Nanette's wedding. 

Next month, my baby brother...who I can no longer call a baby...is getting married. 

And we're all going to be there. The 7 of us...and the 5 children that 3 of them already have. 

I'm so excited. 

In the last 13 years, the most of us that we've gotten together is 5 and that's only happened a handful of times. 
Either '97 or '98...at my sister Zuzy's college graduation.
There are a grand total of 4 pictures like this in existence. This is the first. The second was taken about a year later when we were all vacationing in Florida together. The third is from my sister Nanette's wedding. 
There are going to be a ridiculous amount of pictures taken at Ruben's wedding. So much so that he hired his photographer for the Rehearsal Dinner just so we could all take pictures together before taking even more pictures together at the wedding.

We're fortunate to still have our grandparents, so we'll be adding them to the mix as well.
Here are some pictures of all of us. I've numbered all of us so you can see who's who in the lineup of 1 being the oldest and 7 being the youngest.

Me, Zuzy (#1) and her little boy Craig - the baby of the family. 
Me, Nanette (#2- on the left) and Sammi (#6)
Me and Tatiana (#3) at my grad school graduation
Me and Ruben (#5) - the only boy!
Me, Tiffany (#7- on the left) and Sammi (#6)
So that's us. 6 girls, 1 boy. We live in San Francisco, New Jersey, Texas and D.C. We haven't been together in 13 years and that's all going to change in a month! I can't wait!

Do you have a big family? Anyone have the opposite? Lots of boys and only 1 girl?

Race Recap: Crystal City 5k Fridays

One of my goals for 2013 is to run a sub-25 minute 5k.

My current PR is 25:03.

One would think it would be tremendously easy to knock 4 seconds off of my 5k time.

That would be true...if I actually knew how to do math.

I had hoped to be able to run the entire 5k series which happen in Crystal City every Friday in April at 6:30pm

As life would have it, I would only be able to run 1 of the 4 races so that would be my big attempt at a 5k PR.

I normally leave work early on Fridays and this past Friday was no different.

I got home, changed, drank a bottle of water and just kind of hung out before The Pilot, the puppy and I headed over to the start.

They were calling for a thunderstorm and the clouds were looming but the rain hadn't started yet.

The Race Start was crowded and I headed out at just below an 8:00 pace with the idea that if I maintained that, I would run in under 25 minutes.

5ks are short enough that this doesn't need to be a full on recap. Basically, I ran the 2nd mile a little bit slower than the first mile and picked the pace back up at Mile 3. I felt strong the whole time and thought I was on course to PR until my watch beeped at the 3rd mile marker in 24-something and I realized that I still had 0.1 to go.

Forgetting to calculate the 0.1 in the 5k when you're aiming for a PR is not the best way to achieve said PR.

I finished in 25:3x. My official results weren't recorded for some reason but I know I didn't PR.

Womp womp.

Fun Fact: The reason I ran a 4:01 marathon at Richmond is because I forgot to calculate the 0.2  in my pacing strategy.

Looks like I've learned a tough lesson.

Welp, 5ks are a dime a dozen. Let's hope I can hit that sub-25 sometime soon...and remember the lesson for Marine Corps in October.

Three Things Thursday

1. Running - In the wake of Boston, the running community has come out in full force to show just how much of a community we really are. Tuesday, after work, I headed out for 4-5 solo miles. About a quarter mile from my apartment, I spotted a group of runners standing around and decided to ask them if they were some kind of running group. They were a Meetup.com group that runs every week. I ran with them for just over 5 miles and spent the run chatting with Megan, whose blog I've now started reading. Not only is Megan right around my pace, but she lives in my apartment building! Hi New Running Buddy! It was great to head out with runners - complete strangers at that - and talk about Boston, about training, about life, about everything and realize that while this is why I run.


2. 42 - The Pilot and I haven't seen each other in a week. He came home late Tuesday night and we headed out for dinner at Matchbox and went to see 42. I loved it. I thought it was done very, very well. If you're into baseball (duh), American history, or just good movies...I recommend it. The Pilot wasn't as much of a fan as I was. He thought the movie would chronicle Jackie Robinson's career, whereas it focused on his rookie year. I thought that the choice to do that was more important to what the story represented - integrating baseball.


Also, I didn't realize that Harrison Ford was Branch Rickey until after they rolled the credits. It's embarrassing how bad I am at pop culture.

3. Spring Cleaning - My Spring Cleaning plan has totally fallen apart. I've been out of town every single weekend this month and am headed out again this weekend. I like to think I'll get done what I haven't finished this week, but that just seems ridiculously ambitious. We'll see though. It's been a long, tough week and I've gotten home late every night. I'd love to say that today, I'm going to head home after work on this rainy day and do some serious cleaning, but in reality, I'm going out for margaritas with Leanna and Jenna. Priorities.

So that's that. Tomorrow, I'm hoping to finally cross something off of my 2013 goals list and run a sub-25 minute 5k. Current PR 25:03. Then, I will spend the weekend cleaning and packing.

via
Oh and that list? In case you're wondering, yes, I have gotten on a plane at least once per month this year. Current total: 11 flights. 1 trip each in January, February and March. 2 and counting in April.

Happy Thursday friends.
Go hug a runner today. We all need it this week.

Boston.

I logged into my Blogger Dashboard this morning and saw an influx of posts with a similar title. It's hard not to want to talk about what happened at Boston yesterday. 

When I lived in Boston, my apartment was at Mile 25 of the course.

The view from my apartment. 
The events that unfolded yesterday absolutely crushed my soul. I may not have qualified for Boston and I wouldn't have been there running but Boston was my home. It was where I learned to run. It was where I met marathoners for the first time and committed to running one myself some day. 


Every single person at that race was me. Every single person at that race was my friend. Whether a runner or spectator, every single person there was someone I could identify. Spending hours trying to track down all of my friends to make sure they were safe was awful. 

The explosion happened right around the 4 hour mark. That's when I would be crossing. My mom and my boyfriend and Lord knows who else would have been at Mile 26 if I had be en there. I can't even imagine crossing the finish line of a marathon...or worse, being in the final sprint to the finish, and having to turn around and run in the opposite direction for your life. Or worse, crossing the Finish Line, seeing the explosion and knowing...that it came from where your loved ones are waiting for you to cross.


Kathrine Switzer once said, "If you are losing faith in human nature, go out and watch a marathon." Running a marathon is the shortest event by which one can experience every possible human emotion...or so I thought. Terror was never on that list. Terror is not an emotion that one should experience when running a marathon.

Boston is the biggest Finish Line in the world. I don't know a single runner that doesn't dream of crossing the line at Copley Square. Everything about this just feels so personal. It all just hits way too close to home. 

via
Lauren posted some incredible photos from the race before everything happened. She write in her post, what it was like to look through those photos the race:


I will never train for or run a marathon the same way again but I will run another marathon. This isn't going to stop me or anyone from running. And one day, I'll pour my heart and soul into Boston and give it back everything that was taken away from it yesterday. 

To those of you who ran, I am so so sorry that this was your Boston. My heart aches for and with you.

The pictures on this post are my pictures from the 2011 Boston Marathon. It breaks my heart that a Google Image search of 'Boston Marathon' yields the tragic photos from yesterday. I don't want to post those pictures. I want to remember Boston for what Boston is...a marathon, not a crime scene.

Love/Don't Love

1. It's Monday! For some reason, I'm oddly excited about the week ahead. Love.
2. This weekend, I headed up to my most recent alma mater, NYU to present on a conference on International Education in Emergencies. It went really well and I was so happy to be talking about all of my research again. Love.
3. From New York, I headed to New Jersey to spend some quality time with my family. Love.

Me and my Abuelita
4. I got back to DC late Saturday night and spent an embarrassing amount of time watching YouTube videos on how to fold a fitted sheet that left me frustrated and with bundled sheets. Don't Love.

Apparently there is a book on this subject. 
5. Sunday, I also spent some time in my Sauconys on the Mount Vernon Trail, took a trip to World Market on a Bike Share bike (my new favorite thing in DC) and checked out the new Mind Your Body Oasis studio for a "yogilates" class with Andrea after the owner, Amanda, invited me to a Blogger Open House. Love.

The studio space is gorgeous.
6. While my spring cleaning efforts started off swimmingly, they're at a bit of a standstill. My linen closet is a mess and I still haven't gotten to organizing my running clothes. Guess what I'll be doing this week? Don't Love. 


Today, I'm watching live coverage of the Boston Marathon at work and heading to an Alumni event for my undergrad after work! I've got a busy week ahead and lots of miles to run but I'm ready to take on the week!

Happy Monday!

I Just Ran

I love to run. I really do.

I love to race. I live for training plans, goal paces, tempo runs and the thought of pushing myself for 3 our 4 months to lay everything down in a few short hours on the race course.

I've learned to rely on my Garmin less. I've learned to love running without music. I've learned to enjoy just getting out the door and putting some miles on my shoes.But it's almost always with a purpose or a goal - a range of miles to get in for the day, week or month.

This week has brought summer to DC and yesterday, as the temperature soared to 94, I made plans with The Pilot to have him meet me after work so that we could go for a run through the Cherry Blossoms at their peak.


I didn't bring my iPod. I forgot my Garmin. I know what general direction we needed to be travelling in but didn't have our route perfectly mapped out. I knew that it was roughly 4 miles from work to home through the National Mall but I didn't have the distance down to an exact decimal point.

It was quite possibly the greatest run of my life.


We stopped to take pictures.


I ran up the steps of the Jefferson Memorial.


I talked to tourists about their John McCain version of Flat Stanley...who was most recently in Denmark.

We walked when we got too hot and needed as breather.

I didn't care that tourists were meandering aimlessly.


We yelled at just cyclists who tried to run us of the grass. (Ride your bikes on the pavements a*holes).

We saw the Cherry Blossoms in their peak bloom on the most beautiful day in DC since we've lived here.

It was perfect. It was Date Night. We were together, we were having fun, we weren't spending money.


We just ran.

I've questioned whether it's possible for me to love DC anymore than I already do. Yesterday, I learned that it definitely is. I ran home from work through the monuments during Cherry Blossom...and I can do that every day for the next two weeks if I want to. And that is amazing.


Yesterday, without any intention, plan or agenda (other than getting home) I just ran and it was a beautiful reminder of what running can offer.

It was absolutely perfect.

April 8, 2013

This IS a recap for the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run

Finally.

3rd time's a charm right?

In 2011, my connecting flight to DC left 20 minutes early, leaving me stranded overnight in Chicago and missing the race.

In 2012, I went for a 22 mile run 2 nights before the race and woke up with a back spasm that kept me in bed for 3 days...and missing the race.

This year, I was determined to run the race. I was already in DC. I wasn't planning on running any crazy distances the week of the race. What could stop me?

Well, life has a funny way of stopping you in your tracks sometimes. Thursday morning, I found myself flying home for a funeral and the Cherry Blossom became the last thing on my mind.

I lost my godfather last week and it's been really hard. At his service, the priest likened life and death to running a race. His homily was beautiful and I knew that on Sunday, I'd be running for my godfather, my Tio Papi. His wife, my godmother, told me I had to try to win the race for him.

I flew back to DC Friday night and spent Saturday keeping busy, trying to take my mind off of things and spending entirely too much time on my feet. Andrea was sending texts to keep hourly tabs on me.

This was it. I was actually in DC for the Cherry Blossom. Now, all I had to do was run get to the start. Yes, my A Goal for this race as to Start.

My B Goal was to Finish. My C Goal was to come in somewhere under 1:30...with what I thought to be an ambitious goal of 1:27.

Saturday morning, The Pilot and I woke up bright and early to make our way to the Start.

This is my "OH MY GOD I'M ACTUALLY HERE" face.

Welcome Runners. A Welcome site, indeed.
It was so cold and I was seriously questioning my decision to wear a t-shirt. I made my way into the corral and lined up with the 9:00 pacing group. I started chatting with some girls in the corral and before I knew it, we were crossing the line.

The race was insanely crowded. With narrow streets, I was flat-tired more than my fair share of times and with the number of hairpin turns that left everyone coming to a complete stop, it was pretty frustrating. I had my Garmin on and was checking it intermittently. I was running faster than I wanted to, but my legs felt fine and I didn't think there was too much of a risk of me fading so just kept pushing.

Around Mile 7, we made our way down the long, boring stretch that is Hains Point and I really just started picking things up. I was thinking about my godfather and just running. I felt strong. I knew that my Garmin was .10 off but I was wondering if Mile 9 measured long because I didn't see the Finish Line until I was practically across it. I sprinted in and looked down at my watch.

1:24:42. I was floored. I didn't think I was capable of running a time like that. When I think back to my training, my time just makes sense. I've had a great non-marathon training cycle and I was definitely capable of running much faster than a sub-1:30...which is exactly what I did. At that pace, I definitely felt like I could go further and I know that I'm on track for a great race in Cleveland next month.

As far as my thoughts go on this race...I have to be honest...I didn't love it. The Cherry Blossoms weren't in bloom which was disappointing but there was no music at the start...or at the Finish. Usually, in a race this big (15,000 runners), you hear the starting line before you see it and that wasn't the case here. It was crowded and I think they could've spaced the corrals out a bit more. But I had a great time on the course and I definitely ran it for a special reason. It was, in a way, my final way of saying goodbye...getting those miles in on a beautiful spring day.

So there you have it...I finally ran the Cherry Blossom.

April: Spring Clean Your Gear

First off, I want to thank you all for your overwhelming support of my decision to back out of the marathon. It's refreshing to hear how many of you have been in the same boat! 

Now, on to business. If you've been reading along for the past few months, you know that I've been somewhat diligently following the Runners' World Month-by-Month Guide to a Fitter, Faster You. Each month, you focus on different tasks aimed at making you a better runner. So far, they've looked like this:

February - Commit to Cooking

I did ok with my March plan. I did a lot of those exercises a few times, but I'd like to try and do more of them in the coming months, especially since they focus on strengthening your core, glutes and hamstrings!

The plan for April? Spring Clean Your Gear. 

via Runners' World
Now, I did most of this back in December when I was packing up to move my life to DC, but I'm using this month as an opportunity to let go of some of those super stretched out bras and shorts that I just can't seem to let go of. I'm also going to be donating those old shoes that I love but can no longer run in. 

I also am in serious need of some organization in my life. If you've noticed, I still haven't done a Grand Tour of my Apartment post on here, because, well...I'm still not quite as organized as I'd like to be. So, I made a week by week plan to organize my life this month with the goal of 'unveiling' my apartment on the blog 4 months after I moved in and 1/3 of the way through my lease.

Here's the plan: 

This Week (April 1-7): Kitchen Cabinets, Pantry and Closets. Holy Moly is my kitchen a nightmare. I went and bought this on Amazon which should help matters. 


As far as our closets go, oh man they're a mess. I desperately need a shoe rack and I think it's time to admit that while we probably will be moving again in December, that saving all of the paper we used to wrap valuables and keeping them in boxes is probably not an efficient use of our space. 

The Big Bang Theory - my closet is a little smaller than this. I would love it to look like this.
So that's the plan for this week. See, I'm already being productive. In the time it has taken me to draft this post, I've already bought a shoe rack. Saturday is going to turn into a home organizing frenzy. I can already tell.

Next Week (April 8-14): Organize my running gear. According to the Runners' World Guide, a lot of people seem to organize their gear into baskets. I'm thinking about getting baskets and storing all of my workout gear in my linen closet which would save a lot of space in my dresser drawers (which I know The Pilot would approve of since I have taken to storing my socks and underwear in his sock and underwear drawer.)

Week of April 15 - 21: Organize my recipes and scrapbook. Sigh. My college scrapbook has been on my To-Do list since I graduated from college almost 4 years ago. I desperately need to finish it this year. So this month, I'll get it all organized and hopefully at least finish my Sophomore year (I'm that far behind). Next up, the recipes. I have a collection of magazines that I flip through every week to plan out my meals. Some of these magazines are almost 4 years old and have been manhandled almost to the point of complete disintegration so I really need to start organizing them.

I love this idea on how to turn a Moleskin book into a Recipe Book. 

via
So that's the plan. We'll see how I'm doing after these first 2 weeks and reevaluate from there! Wish me luck!

Have you taken on any major organization projects lately? Let me know about them! Especially if they've involved recipes, running gear or closets!

April 3, 2013

Decisions

Last week, I was exhausted.

I had just come off of 2 1/2 weeks off of marathon training and jumped into a 40 mile week. I was setting my sites on somewhere between 45-48 miles with the goal of finally hitting the coveted 50 mile week that I have yet to achieve in any marathon training cycle.
You can see how well that worked out. 
I ran 11. I took Thursday off because of shooting pain in my calf. I got a nice leg massage from The Pilot which immediately made me feel better. During said leg massage was one of the first times I've ever turned to my marathon-averse boyfriend for running advice. We had a long talk about how I was feeling after 2 weeks off, how I was feeling about the marathon and I decided to sleep on our conversation.

Friday morning, my leg felt fine. I started thinking about my planned 20 miler for Saturday and realized that I didn't want to run 20 miles this weekend. This wasn't just me lacking motivation or being tired, there was no part of me that wanted to run 20 miles this weekend...or any miles for that matter.

See, I took a year between my first and 2nd marathons. Then, without missing a beat after my 2nd, I jumped into training for my 3rd and run my 3rd, 4th and 5th marathons without taking a break in between.

I'm tired. I'm at the point where I feel like I have to run, rather than I want to run. So, I made a bold move.

I decided not to run the marathon I've been training for. It's 4 weeks away but I just don't want to do it. I do still want to run so I'm channeling my energy into a much less daunting task: Running a PR at the Cleveland Half-Marathon in May.


I haven't trained for a Half in over 2 years. I have a strong base built up and I'm strong right now...I want to keep running, I just don't want to run a Full. After Cleveland, I'm going to take some much needed time off from training plans and high mileage to build on all of the strength I'll need to take on my one and only shot for a sub-4 marathon this year at the race where I tried to go sub-4 for the first time: The Marine Corps Marathon.

But for now, I'm not even thinking about that, for now, I'm not running a Spring Marathon and I'm totally fine with that. 

April 2, 2013

It's BASEBALL Season!

aka the most wonderful time of the year. 

Andrea said it best when she said, "Baseball gives me a reason to hold grudges against people I don't even know." Amen. Phillies fans? UGH. You're wearing a Yankee hat at a baseball game that the Yankees aren't playing at? GO HOME. 

via
It has been a loooooooong winter. Heck, it 's still winter. That little April Fool's joke Mother Nature played yesterday was no joke. It is 45 degrees today. It looks like next week is finally supposed to get a little warmer, but if I've learned one thing in my 3 months of living in the District of Columbia, it's that the weather predictions here are so unbelievably wrong all the time that no one pays attention to them. 

Anyway, let's talk about what's really important today. BASEBALL. I am, and will always be, a Mets fan. It isn't always easy but hey, we're actually not projected to be last this year and given our 11-2 win over the Padres last night, I'm going to go ahead and say that we most definitely won't finish dead last. We won't make the Playoffs, but hey miracles happen. 

via
This Baseball Season, I'll be spending the majority of my time at Nationals games. While The Pilot seems to be all about jumping on the #Natitude bandwagon (he's already bought 2 jerseys), I'm not so sold. First of all, the Nationals are a serious contender for this year's Fall Classic, which is awesome to get behind and I probably could get excited to root for the Nationals...except for one small thing.

I hate their star player. 2012 NL Rookie of the Year Bryce Harper is just a little too much of a rookie for me. Blowing kisses as you're rounding 3rd? Slamming bats against walls (and saying that you'll probably do it again)? He's a 20-year-old punk kid with a half-a-million dollar paycheck and a bad attitude. Kids needs to grow up. 

On the other hand...they do have Davey Johnson, who led the Mets to their last World Series Win...4 months before I was born. 

via
Either way, it will be fun to actually watch a play off contender through the season...but Mr. Harper needs an attitude readjustment first. 

Now, for those of you who have been reading my blog from the beginning, you'll know that I've been on a quest to visit every Major League baseball stadium. What started as part of my 25 before 25 list, has turned into...Can I do it by the end of this season? So, we're making that goal yet again. Sunday morning, CBS ranked their top 5 baseball stadiums in the country so I thought it would be fun to compare their list to mine.

I'm sure my brother-in-law would argue that I'm biased toward CitiField and hey, maybe I am, but CBS has it pretty up there too because you know what, it's just a beautiful ball park.

*Sigh*
So, there you have it. The quest continues. 18 ballparks down, 12 to go. And since we all love lists, here's where I'm hoping to head this season:
  1. Cleveland - Indians - Progressive Field
  2. Detroit - Tigers - Comerica Park
  3. Minneapolis - Twins - Target Field
  4. Anaheim - Angels - Angel Stadium of Anaheim
  5. Oakland - As - O.co. Coliseum
  6. Seattle - Mariners - Safeco Field
  7. St. Louis - Cardinals - Busch Stadium
  8. Miami - Marlins - Marlins Park
  9. Phoenix - Diamondbacks - Chase Field
  10. Denver - Rockies - Coors Field
  11. LA - Dodgers - Dodger Stadium 
  12. San Diego - Padres - Petco Park
Wish me luck! Happy Baseball Season! Go to as many games as possible and please, don't be that guy who wears your team's gear when your team isn't playing. No one likes that guy. 

Who's your team? 
Do you think the Nationals have what it takes to go all the way?

Love + Foodie Pen Pal Reveal

1. IT'S BASEBALL SEASON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love. LoVE. LOVE.



2. This Easter weekend was pretty fantastic. The Pilot was in town and we headed to the National Kite Festival on Saturday. It was amazing and one of my favorite things I've done in DC since I've moved here. Love.

Hundreds of kites EVERYWHERE. 
3. I did not run 20 miles this weekend. I didn't run at all this weekend and I am totally ok with that. Love.
4. Did I mention that it's BASEBALL season? Love.
5. I mentioned last week that The Pilot and I finally found a church after shopping around for 3 months. Yesterday, we went to Easter Mass and it was awesome. After Mass, we went to brunch at this place in Clarendon that I had super low expectations for, but ended up being spectacular. I think we just found our new Sunday morning ritual. Love.
6. This weekend is the Cherry Blossom 10 Mile! I can't wait to finally run this race. I just need to make sure that I don't hop on any planes this weekend or throw out my back on my way to the start line on Sunday! Love.
7. It actually legitimately feels like spring today! I left the house without a jacket! AND I WASN'T COLD! Love.


So that's that, lots of love in the air today.

Now, let's talk about the awesome Foodie Pen Pal box I received from Kimi in March. Kimi blogs over at Utah Munchies and she definitely sent me a handful of Utah munchies which I thought was such a cool idea. I need to find out if there are specific DC munchies that I can send to my next foodie pen pal.

Treats! 
Kimi sent me an assortment of goodies from Utah including Buttermilk pancake mix (which I made waffles with...and they were amazing), raspberry muffin mix, bbq sauce, a mint truffle chocolate bar (which I devoured post-run on my way to trivia last week), a coconut macaron (yum!)  raspberry creamed honey. I've never had raspberry creamed honey but it's so good!

The assortment. 
I was very pleasantly surprised with all of my goodies! They've all been fantastic so far and I can't wait to keep trying them! Thanks Kimi!

So that's that. 

Sadly, I'm not going to Opening Day because I have a silly thing called work BUT I will be at the Nationals game on Thursday and will hopefully make it up to a Mets game soon =/.

I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter weekend and is having a great start to the week!
