When my head, or heart, is muddled, the best treatment is to go for a run. But I don't always do what's best for me. If I did, I would have a run streak comparable to Brett Favre's NFL game streak. I have a six and a four year old, have moved across the country recently (1.5 years ago but it feels like yesterday), and am kind've sort've switching careers maybe. Both my head and my heart could benefit from daily run therapy.
But I haven't run since the RnR Las Vegas half, 10 days ago. And to be honest, I didn't really do much training for that race. After a sprained foot from not training for the Chicago marathon (see "85% Idiocy..."), I rested and eased back into a mediocre running schedule, topping out at 4.5 miles before Vegas. Vegas was cold and hurt like a b*tch.
