Tonight though, I will run. I don't have time to run (I need to do laundry, pack, visit grandpa, pay bills, etc.), but I have a friend to run with and it's a priority. It will help to calm me and I will be more productive afterwards - that's my theory anyway. Do not tell me otherwise! ;-)
It will probably be a 4 mile run on the treadmill, but that's fine with me. I have a SWAT (southwest area triathletes) meeting tonight at 7pm so I will take what I can get. This may mean I am still throwing clothes in a pack as my ride is pulling out of the driveway on Thursday morning, but it's a chance I"m going to take!
So, my task at hand is to come up with a goal by the time I get back from Ireland. Possibly a spring marathon?? Maybe an adventure race?? We shall see.
