Did another short 3 mile run on the treadmill today. I am kind of alternating between 3 miles and somewhat longer runs. Still dragging from stress and inactivity over the last few months. But I know that as the next few weeks go by here in Deadhorse, I will gradually get back to my old routine. Looking out at the darkness isn't too helpful either. Maybe there is something to the perpetual darkness having a negative influence on our moods. Sounds like a good excuse anyway! I'm going to try not to let it do that to me though. Hoping for more ambition tomorrow.
