Really disappointed in my March. Just 150 miles. I did more miles in February when the weather should have been worse, but this March was one of our wettest ever.

I'm 40 miles behind my pace from last year, and I'll need 300 miles in April to catch up. But this week is going to be wet again. I'll try for 250 miles.

4/1: 20.0
YTD: 512.1 miles

Spring in New England - it snowed yesterday. Just a coating here, but parts of NE got over a foot. Still cold. Hopefully it will warm up soon.
