I wrote a while back about how the first day of DST is my favorite day of the year, because it seems so optimistic (and it happens to fall on the night of the NCAA championship game more often than not). I just really like the extra light at night.
Since Sam was born, I’ve been trying hard to balance a bunch of things that don’t seem to be balance-able (work, kathy, sam, eating right, exercising), at least with Sam as a very little guy, although I’m not sure it’ll ever change, really. But one of my strategies has been to get to the gym very early — about 2-3 times during the week I’ll go at 6a. That’s tough timing for me, but it’s been working out well enough. This morning, though, I woke up a little before 6, and it was just pitch black. Sort of demoralizing.
So I guess this year I’ll look forward to falling back, although I’m not too sure it’s worth the trade…
Anyway, no gym for today, but there’s always tomorrow. Trying to figure out now how to go to the gym on days that I have breakfast meetings….
