I can’t believe April has finally arrived. I’ve been waiting for months it seems and now it’s here and I’m not ready for it. Dang!
This is a big month for me. First, on April 1st I spent my last day in Amsterdam. Many of you guessed correctly yesterday. We had a four-day weekend and decided Amsterdam would be the best place to celebrate Easter. I’ll share more about our trip tomorrow.
Second, the London Book Fair starts on April 15th. Last year I stumbled upon this event just days before it started. This year I’ve had my tickets since January. I’m hoping it’s just as good or maybe even better this time around.
Third, at the end of this month we leave for our trip to Malaysia. This will be our first time venturing into Asia. Also, we’ll be visiting two of our friends who live there. And many of you who follow this blog know I’ve been training to hike Mount Kinabalu. Time is a ticking now. Last week I didn’t go for a run since I had a cold and wanted to recover for my trip to Amsterdam. I finally went for a run last night. I was nervous about the run since I was dreading finding out how much damage I did taking a week off. Fortunately I realized halfway through my run that the damage was minimal. Yes I was huffing and puffing, but that’s normal for me. I only ran a couple of miles. Tonight I plan to run 3.5 miles. I did come to terms with the pressure I’ve been putting on myself while flying back from Amsterdam. I’ve been focusing so much on making it to the top that I forgot that even if I don’t make it to the top it will still be a wonderful experience. I can only do what I can do. No reason to stress out about it. Just go and have fun.
That’s my month and I’m super excited!
