If you asked me what my favorite holiday is, you may never guess my answer. Probably because most people don’t necessarily think of this day as a holiday: Daylight Savings Time: Spring Version! Trading in one (albeit precious) hour of sleep pales in comparison to the hours of afternoon daylight I will now be experiencing. Since my morning workouts are usually runs or swims anyway (or the occasional trainer sesh), I crave getting out of work and still finding daylight abundant for my afternoon workout. I don’t mind that I may be pushed back in my morning sunrise. And since this was a Leapyear, I don’t want to hear any complaining about the lost hour – you already got an entire day for free!
Daylight Savings means that a lot of things are near. The feel of summer is in the air. Snowball stands will be open soon. Miss Twist will start coming by my house at 10pm again! Thursday night group rides are only a few weeks away! It won’t feel like 11pm when I’m eating dinner at 8:30p. Driving with the windows down, and letting the breeze blow through open windows in the house. Not to mention I swear this improves the morale of all of America because of the increase in Vitamin D people get from sunlight.
It also means tri season is just around the corner! I am literally counting down the days until my season opening race at Rev3 Knoxville……Only
59 days left!!
An added bonus of my favorite time of the year is that this weekend coincides with “Camp Biswelsiek” (yes, I made that up myself….if you google that you probably won’t get anywhere)….Since I am unable to get out to Arizona for Coach Hillary and Maik’s 4-day Tuscon Smashfest, I have worked out an East coast version of the camp with Coach and will be putting in the work along with everyone else Friday – Monday! Let the fun begin!
