Motivation Monday: Earth Day


Happy Earth Day, everyone! As a kid, I used to love Earth Day. Connecticut is just finally starting to see some sun around this time of year and I would take those incremental increases in temperature as an excuse to be outside constantly. Now that I live in San Diego and there's never an excuse NOT to be outside, I feel guilty that I don't take advantage of it more.

Marathon training has been a great remedy for this. With all the hours that I'm logging on the road, I've had a lot more time to enjoy the natural beauty that is San Diego. Wildflowers are blooming, the smell of jasmine is everywhere and lately, there hasn't been a cloud in the sky. We'll see how that holds up before May Gray sets in. In the meantime, my motivation to keep training lately is just the excuse to be outside and soak in our pretty city. :)
