Back to school

#1: BACK TO SCHOOL

Although it was easy to slip into a summertime routine, students will be snapped back to reality Monday morning as they return to school following spring break.

This weekend is a great opportunity to catch up on laundry, grocery shopping and general organization to finish the school year strong.

Fun fact: there are only 10 Mondays left in this school year.

Spring

#2: SPRING IS IN THE AIR

The vernal equinox – or the first official day of spring – is Wednesday.

The sun is expected to shine, and the high is predicted to be 68, so it will even feel like spring.

On this date, the length of day and night is nearly equal in all parts of the world. After the spring equinox, the northern hemisphere tilts toward the sun, leading to longer, sunnier days.

Run

#3: IT’S BA-A-A-A-CK!

The social runs at Trinity Street Coffee Bar in Decatur resume this week.

The 5K run is at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Afterward, runners get a drink ticket, so lace up your sneakers! Everyone is welcome – runners, walkers, young and old. Bring the whole family.

Dog

#4: GIVING FOLKS A ‘RUFF’ TIME

Bark, Bike & Brews, the latest and greatest festival in Bridgeport, is March 23.

The day kicks off with a bike ride at 7 a.m., followed by festivities 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Halsell Street. There will be dog contests, a kids bike parade at noon and numerous vendors, plus free beer and coffee samples.

Read a full preview of the festival in the midweek Messenger.

Shoe

#5: THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKIN’

Teams are signing up now for Walk Across Texas, an exercise program through Texas A&M AgriLife Extension – Wise County.

Teams of eight work together to walk a total of 832 miles over the course of the eight-week program, April 1-May 26.
