…says ‘December.’ I’m pretty sure the pile of junk that is now up to its bottom has been building since then.
It’s time to dig out, catch up and reorganize. Spring cleaning anyone?
After Sunday’s race was in the bag, the horizon just suddenly opened up ahead of my eyes. It seems like for 3 months you can’t think past the end of March, and most times past the tip of your nose. Now it’s spring, time to relax a bit, take the time to think and plan and dream. In a few weeks the work begins to shape the future.
In two weeks I run a marathon that I’m woefully unprepared for. Last night I rented a car for that trip and bought some new running shoes (for that trip and the following summer). It’s kind of nice to be looking ahead now, kind of relieving to know that the whole winter is in the bag and there is nothing that can be done now to change it. All-in-all, it was a pretty good winter. Those that stuck with it through the downs seemed to have some great ‘ups’ by the end. Those high points are what show us what is possible, what we are capable of. Together with the lows, they combine for the full experience that motivates us to work harder and do better next year…
