Just 30 minutes 244/365

I only had a 30 minute run on my schedule today. It was supposed to be nice and easy because I have 31 miles to run tomorrow. 30 easy minutes. The fear of not getting them done hung over me all day.   You’d have thought it was 31 miles I had to fit in. It was the shortness of the workout that made it impossible. It was so easy [...]

I wish I had about five more hours that I could sit here quietly and plow through unanswered emails and the To Do list pile. (Yes, a pile of To Do [...]
