“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Back in the Game

Well, after an almost month-long running hiatus, I got back out there yesterday morning.  I certainly wasn't fast - I just wanted to get moving again.  I should've been more active in the past few weeks, especially considering I have another half marathon next weekend...but...well, let's face it...I don't have any good excuses as to why.  After a long training cycle and a very full January, I just needed a break.

It was a bright, crisp, cool morning and a great day to be outside.  Even though I didn't really get into any kind of rythym, and I ended up switching to 30:90's for the majority of the run, I still felt really great when I was done.  It was nice to experience the post-run high again!
