Squirrels Do Not Like Jelly Beans

OK, I'm a little late, but I have a cute Easter story. Early on Easter morning, the (ahem) Easter Bunny left a number of candy-filled plastic eggs in our backyard. I went out for a long run while the kids were still sleeping. A couple of hours later I called home to see if the kids had collected the eggs. They hadn't, so I asked my husband if he could hold them off a little longer since I was 2 miles from home. When I got home, the kids started putting the eggs in their bags and my husband and I noticed that we seemed to be missing a quite few! We had 2 neighbors report that they saw squirrels with Easter eggs. We also found stray eggs under the neighbor's car, behind the neighbor's garage, in their flower bed, in their window well, half buried in my flowerbed, behind our shed and under our garbage cart. I think there ended being about 20 or so that just disappeared. Although I have found 3 empty ones since then. But apparently squirrels don't like jelly beans because we found several opened eggs with the jelly beans lying there next to the egg. :)

So anyway, here's my training for the past 2 weeks. I can't remember if I mentioned this before or not, but most of my treadmill workouts include 3-5 minutes of walking at the end.
