The past few days, I’ve been enjoying a key perk of life at Automattic… being able to work from anywhere. I didn’t have to travel far… just a few steps outside to our backyard!

As my family can attest to, I love mint. Thankfully, one of our flower beds has a multitude of mint in it, and it keeps on spreading more and more each year!
My daughter and I recently started training to run a 5k later this summer (we’re using 5K Runner by Fitness22). We are planning on doing a runDisney Virtual Running Short 5K in July and a local 5K in August!
This weekend, I decided to make some rosemary-infused cold brew coffee (thanks to my sister for the idea!). It was quite simple. When adding 80g of medium roast Columbian beans from local roaster Union Place Coffee Roasters, I also added the leaves from half of a sprig of fresh rosemary (2g). I let it sit on the counter for around 20 hours.
This morning I tried it for the first time. The rosemary flavor and aroma really comes through!
Today I capped off 400 days in a row of meeting my Move goal with my first two mile run ever!
Perfect socks for a Monday (gift from my sister)!
The blue sky kept on calling to me today from my office window. And it was relatively warm, at a balmy 45°F. So, I decided to go for a short walk this afternoon. A walk. The road was dry, so I also decided to try out the new running shoes that my wife got me for Christmas.
I don’t know if it was the blue sky, or my new blue shoes, but halfway through the walk I thought… “I’ll run just a bit”. I haven’t run at all since last October, so I figured that maybe I’d manage a half mile. A half mile turned into a mile, and then into 1.3 miles. And I even managed my fastest pace yet (with my bulky sweatshirt and winter coat no less).
I can’t wait for more blue skies and warmer weather!
