After a few tough weeks with work, coaching and grad school, I'm finally back on track and running reasonably fast again. Not quite where I used to be, but getting there. It turns out that with Janda's race schedule I'd only be able to hit a couple of meets, so I might just keep this as base training for next year's indoor season. We'll see how I feel on those rare meet weekends when I'm not at either Janda's race or a school track meet, and then I'll figure it out.

Spring has sprung

Finally we are breaking out of the winter and early spring doldrums here, and at the perfect time- April vacation. This week has been beautiful and sunny, almost summer-like. It's very exciting to see the flowers and trees coming back to life finally.
