Sports, Miles, Books and Looks of March

by - Saturday, April 04, 2015

I have never been so happy to put a month in my review mirror. March was just awful. The weather sucked, work was beyond stressful and school just about made me want to cry. It was all around a really, really hard month for me mentally.

April, on the other hand, is going to be beyond awesome. Softball season starts, Opening Day is upon us, I have a great trip to the South planned. It's going to be so awesome.

So let's quick recap March and then move on to April.


My Terps made a nice run in the tournament. We bowed out in a heartbreaking loss to West Virginia, but man it was a fun season to watch the Terps.

And with Melo coming back next year and Diamond Stone committing to the Terps, we are going to be so good!

Terps for life!!!!

Also caught my first Caps game of the season, finally.

C-A-P-S, Caps, Caps, Caps!

In terms of rec league sports, volleyball wrapped up a few weeks ago. Our team didn't win a game all season. Oof. But it's all good. Softball season starts on Monday, and my team had a practice last week, and man we are going to be good!


I did a ton of running in March! The month started with the St. Patty's Day double (5K and 10K) and then I quickly rolled into half marathon training.


In total, I think I've run about 40 miles this month before I ran into my calf issues and had to take some time off. Not bad at all for not running much in January or February. I was hoping March would bring some warmer weather, and while I did get to do a run or two in shorts, most of my runs were still in my cold gear.

Temps in the 60s means first shorts run of the season! Happiness!

Thought I was done with the cold gear for the year, but it was 33 degrees on my long run today. Where's spring?


Thanks to my spring break, I was able to actually do a decent amount of reading this month. Here's what I read, with my brief Goodreads summaries.

Big Little Lies - Liane Moriarty

I read this book after reading Moriarty's other two big books, and this book is definitely more deep and a little bit darker. I think this is my favorite of the three of read. It was a good read with more substance than the other two books and tackled a serious issue like domestic violence as seen (or not seen in some cases) through a group of friends.

What Alice Forgot - Liane Moriarty

I like a book with a good happy ending, and spoiler alert, this book had one. The premise was kind of ridiculous though. A woman falls at the gym, hits her head and forgets 10 years of her life, including the fact that she's going through a divorce. Then suddenly a couple of hundred pages later, the memory is back, the marriage is basically fixed and we're out. Light, fluffy and a little bit silly, but I still enjoyed it.

Unbroken - Laura Hillenbrand

I'm not a huge nonfiction reader, but I couldn't put this book down. The story was fascinating and captivating and tragic. Highly recommend.

Where She Went - Gayle Forman

This is the sequel to If I Stay, which I read earlier this year. I mainly read this because I wanted to know how the story ended all those years later. This was told from Adam's POV this time around and was a quick and easy read. Didn't love it. Didn't hate it.

Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell

I have yet to meet a Rainbow Rowell book I haven't liked. This book might actually be my favorite so far. It's about a girl and her twin sister as they start their first year at college. One girl is super outgoing and fits right in, the other is quiet, shy and feels like she doesn't belong. She prefers to write her fanfiction and hide from her social anxiety. Great story, loved the characters, never wanted it to end.

Attachments - Rainbow Rowell

I loved the format of this book. Half of it was told through emails and the other half was told from the point of view of a tech guy who was hired to real all the emails for security purposes. This book was obviously set a while back when companies were first getting email, but it was a fun story. Rainbow Rowell tells really good stories.

The Best of Me - Nicholas Sparks

Nicholas Sparks' books always make me want to pick up and move to a small Southern town. This book was heart-wrenching and now of course I want to see the movie. Super fast read, really good.


True story pretty much forgot to take pictures of any of my outfits until the very last day of the month. That was a fail.


But here's something I threw together when I was desperately trying to get some color into my outfits!

And that's a wrap for March. Good riddance you terrible month. Bring on all the awesomeness of April!
