Between projects @ work, the mixed-chill in the weather, post-marathon resting and general all-round blahs and lack of motivation, I’ve been pretty lazy about running this last half of January. I guess that amounts to something of a deserved break, but I’m very quickly falling behind on my goal of keeping up with last year’s virtual distance run and tracking lots of klicks for the next while. Can anyone say “burned out” much? I’m not done. I’m just taking a few casual days. And now that February has arrived (on a quiet Saturday with some time to kill, to boot) I’m sitting here contemplating how much energy I can muster to get my sorry ass out the door and put some distance on this morning. Problem is, I kinda need some mild inspiration this morning and just a regular run isn’t going to cut it. I’m thinking of maybe some river valley. I’m thinking maybe some exploration. I’m thinking maybe some adventure.
