Ready for spring

These cold weather runs are getting a little tiresome and I am ready for spring! Fortunately, the days are getting longer. Unfortunately, it seems my workload is getting larger too as once again, this is shaping up to be a challenging semester. If I've learned anything in the last year it's how to take it one day at a time, weather the tougher spells, and trust that an easier stretch lies ahead. It's like with a run, even at the toughest moments, there's inevitably a bit of relief around the bend. I just don't think I've ever been quite so scheduled before! It's tricky to find time for everything but with some creativity, so far I have managed. One advantage to the busy schedule is that it requires me to organize and pack food which facilitates making good choices. If I don't have it with me, I can't very well eat it.

I'm vowing to drink more water, fewer beverages with artificial sweeteners, and very little if any "junk" food. With mileage going up over the coming months, I need good fuel going in the tank.
