Sorry for being MIA. I'm back in Boston, visiting friends and generally enjoying my first real vacation since I started life as a lawyer. I got in the day before a snow storm, which was perfect. Since I don't have to drive or go to work, I don't mind the piles of snow and even find them charming. I managed to get a 3-day pass to my old gym, the amazing Healthworks (well, the facilities are amazing - the staff seems uniformly cranky). Yesterday's scheduled workout was 5 miles, and I got in 10 (a few were walking). Today's scheduled workout was 8 miles, and I got in 5. Overall, I'm proud of myself for still working out while on vacation, and it's definitely helping me stay balanced while out of my routine. I'm headed to yoga on Sunday with a friend, which should be a (very challenging but hopefully excellent) change of pace.

"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives." - Henry David Thoreau

Aw thanks Dori, I actually am!

Tarryn, I think you're right - I've been meaning to add yoga into my routine for a while in order to help me stay injury free - and sane!
