Spring has arrived in a big way here in New England, and I'm looking forward to being outside more. I've had a rough winter with regards to exercise, and I'm hoping to turn that around. I'm also looking to plan some big hikes for this summer (including a multiple day outing to complete the entirety of Rhode Island's North-South Trail.)
We're off to Vermont for a few days, and I've got a half marathon planned for my return. Will be nice to have a change of scenery for awhile, and I'll probably even log some miles there.
There is a lot of turmoil in my life. I swear, most of the time I don't go looking for it. I need to get back in motion to put my mind at ease, and remind me of what's important. Drama with the extended family, drama at work, drama with friends. It all amounts to a sense of overwhelming misery and dread.
When I'm out on the road my thoughts most often turn to my wife and daughter, and that is absolutely where my focus should be. I need running to remove my emphasis on the negative, and give me a chance at enjoying what I have. I'd like to write more on these topics, with greater detail, but I'll have to wait for a later time where I can plan the posts out more.
