April 2022: Ode to Spring

Link to this months’ column: Spring is just around the corner – Eden Prairie Local News (

March and April have been difficult, dreary months for me. I don’t think we’ve had more than two sunny good-weather days in a row. I’m glad for the rain (we need it), but I am so looking forward to when everything turns green and flowers bloom!

Soon, soon the MN Landscape Arboretum will be filled with tulips.

Running on New Year’s Day is a chilly tradition – Eden Prairie Local News

12th year of a beloved and super cool tradition.

Here’s a picture from Jan 1, 2019. Teaching my kiddos fortitude and the miracle of layers and body heat. We followed up our 1-mile walk with lots of hot chocolate and apple cider, so I hope they forgive me some day. Especially Mr. Scarf Head.

C-c-c-c-cold! January 1, 2019. New Year’s Day Run/Walk/Shuffle around Purgatory Creek Park, Eden Prairie, MN.
