Ship’s Log–January 6, 2015


It snowed a bit today, and the temperature dropped to a seasonably appropriate frigid. I don’t know what this is going to mean for my ability to finish my 12 miles this week, but there’s nothing I can do about the state of my paths. Either I’ll be able to run them in a day or two, or I won’t. Next week’s forecast is warmer though, so I’m comforting myself by focusing on meeting my goal next week if it’s not safe to do it this week.

This afternoon I gave my pantry its annual clear-out, tossing anything that expired in the last year. I had a several cartons of unused coconut water. Guess what I won’t be buying any more? That’s a lot of money for something I probably don’t need only to let it spoil. The NUUN tablets I use during peak training season offer much the same vitamin and mineral profile, but they don’t spoil. The pantry is now fully cleaned, stocked, and ready to support better food decisions for me and my family.
