>These past few weeks have been pretty busy. So busy that it seems getting my mileage in is the last thing I want to do before I fall into bed at night. It’s the end of the semester so projects and papers are starting to pile up. Having class two nights a week may not seem like a lot, but it really starts to dig into you after three continuous months.
I’ve been trying to get miles in, not as many as I hoped, but I was able to run while I was on a weekend vacation. For my birthday and Easter I headed to the sunny and warm state of Arizona. It was absolutely beautiful, I’d move there in a heartbeat. However, if you want to get a run in, you’d better be waking up at the crack of dawn. Still stuck in Ohio time zone, I woke up at 6am my first day there and got an early morning run in. By 7:30 it was already starting to get warm. It was definitely a change. But it was great to run in any direction and see mountains in the back ground, and of course cacti all around.
Great vacation, but good to be back in Ohio. 18 days left until the race. Gotta get those miles in.
