I’ve been hibernating this winter. Well, not really, I’ve been quite active in other aspects of life but running has taken a backseat to some other priorities. There are only so many hours in a week! It’s the things you value highest that get done (whether knowingly or unwittingly), so it’s not a matter of “I don’t have time” (I don’t believe in “I don’t have time” — you make time for the things that are important). But I’m OK admitting that running has not been as much of a priority this season as some other things I’d like to make progress on. And those efforts are paying off, however slowly.

That said, the promise of warmer weather – and upcoming races – has me pushing myself just a bit harder so as to not completely embarrass myself in my performance! It’s a bit more windy than I prefer, but it’s running shorts weather at last. Which makes me smile.
