I am transitioning back into my running shoes.  Track started this week.  I am helping out this season again, assisting with the girl's team, being inspired and staying active with a group of strong and fun girls.

The sap is running.  After a stretch of cold days that slowed the sap run down a bit, the weather warmed up enough late in the week for the sap to start running again.   This past weekend topped out around 50 degrees!  Tomorrow I will be collecting the sap from the weekend with my students, cooler weather may slow things down again this week.  We will have to see what I am able to get.  So far it has been a slow start.  I have only collected about 3 gallons from 9 taps.  I am hoping for close to 40 gallons before I need to pull the taps.  Time will tell.

We are still enjoying the snow.  We have been spending our weekends at a nearby ski resort.  Both the alpine skiing and Nordic ski trails were a delight the last few days.  We have been having so much fun spending long stretches of time outdoors, getting exercise.  The sun and vitamin D has been revitalizing!
