It's been over a month since I last posted, so you might expect some kind of explanation for my neglect. Well, there's no reason, so get over it.

Anyway, a few things have happened in the last month, but none are of real significance to the trip. I just got back from spring break, and I'm getting back into the rhythm of classes. I've had a few good snowball fights in the past couple days, so i'm feeling pretty good about that.

My running has been going pretty well. I'm a little worn down, but overall i'm still optimistic. Right now i'm doing 75 miles a week. This isn't as tough as it may sound because it's mostly just straight mileage without any workouts mixed in. Right now we're just working to get a mileage base. Today we might play a game that our coach introduced us to at the beginning of indoor track. It's called last man out and it consists of running around a 400 meter loop in the woods with all of our distance guys and after every lap, the person who is in last place is out. I don't really stand a chance, especially with our mid-distance guys running it, but it's fun anyway.

We had our first outdoor meet last Saturday in South Carolina, so I was able to get my first taste of a 25 lap 10k. Overall, the experience was extremely painful and depressing, but that didn't spoil my mood. It was the first race of the year and I had just finished a week off of running, so I didn't expect much. I won't give the time because it's a little embarrassing. I'll just let you know that I hope to run at least a minute faster at the next meet.

I was in South Carolina for spring break with the track team. I had a decent time, but I could probably have thought of about a hundred or so places I would rather be; the number one alternative being home in the U.P. But, I made a committment to the track team and must keep it.

Anyway, to make this site more interesting, I think I'll leave it at that and post again in a couple days. Hopefully this time I'll remain committed to posting every couple days. I'll admit that I actually come to this site a lot and have time to post, but I'm just too lazy to. I really don't have that much homework either.

I guess that's all for now. I'm off to launch a barrage of snowballs on any unsuspecting traveler I see.
