I've never valued time to run before. I mean, I've always enjoyed running, but TIME to run has never been a "serious" problem before now. When I was in school, I had time before class, between classes, after class, between work. It was just a matter of squeezing it in whenever I could. And as long as I didn't waste a lot of time between things I didn't really have a problem with it.
Then there was that whole skip across the country thing. All I had was time. Four straight months of nothing to do but run. Oh to have that luxury again. I've picked up a second job at Potomac River Running, the running store pretty close to my house. It rules, and I like that I now have people I can actively engage in super nerdy running conversations with, but it's added some kind of craziness to my schedule. The only time I can feasibly get a run in is before my tree climbing job....at 4 am. Now I know how some of my running friends who have recently had babies feel; micromanaging time down to the microsecond.
It's a good lesson to learn, but I thought I'd have quite a few years before had to be more responsible with my time.
In other news, the book is doing well, and people are liking it! Even better, the people that say they like it, done have a last name that starts with 'Mc' and ends in 'Glade.'
If you haven't picked it up yet, don't be afraid, it'll be entertaining at the very least.
