As of late, my road running has been so sporadic that I've contemplated changing my blog name to "Vegan Cross Trainer". I've been exercising regularly but the cardio portion of my workouts has been more boot camp, cycle, elliptical, and Stair Master than running.
Now, if you me personally or you've read this post, you're probably wondering what the big deal is. It isn't like me to train anyway or freak out about a race. It's just that this year has been stressful in so many ways and my body has been through the ringer, mentally and physically. So although I've been working out, I've sort of been on auto-pilot and haven't been giving it my all. (Sometimes I barely break a sweat at the gym - it's been that bad.) As a result, I've gained weight, which has left me feeling sluggish, tired, depressed, and quite honestly, NOT in the mood to run.

What races are you running this spring?
