This deep, burning question has been plaguing me for weeks. My brain. I can't.
In other news, spring race training has once again begun. I've decided, for financial and sanity reasons, that two half marathons a year—one in the spring and one in the fall—is a good plan for me.
Because my spring race is on a trail that used to be a railroad, it's pretty flat; a good chance to attempt a PR once again. I had originally planned on creating a plan from different plans (read: winging it) as I usually do, but then I was asked by a friend if I wanted to try to train for a PR. He's super smart and has coached track and, well, I've got nothing to lose. You know what Einstein said about "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result," right? So, my training is officially in his hands (not Einstein's).

One thing I really need to work on (and I never thought I'd say this) is my nutrition during training. Specifically, eating enough calories and protein. Apparently a couple servings of peanut butter a day isn't enough protein. The world is a cruel place!
I love to eat. Food is my BFF. And yet, apparently, I've been doing it an injustice by not consuming enough of it. I'd make that my resolution for the new year, but I don't do resolutions because what happens looks a little something like this:
Did you make a resolution for 2014 that you stuck to?
