The world is a curse, it'll kill if you let it
I know they got pills that can help you forget it
- K.flay

Good song here. Did three this morning.

Day 4

This is Day 4 of my new job and the fourth morning run I've done this week. Only 2.5 today and yesterday because I have to be back by 7 and try to leave by 730 to get to work by 8 for a daily 8am leadership call which will for sure be and already is the bane of my existence. I can do the call from the car which in reality is what I've been doing. But I'm pretty happy with my commitment level. So many positive things line up when I run in the morning. I eat better all day, I'm energized and alert when I get to work and I can spend my evenings relaxing.

I set out running but I take my time
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
If I get home before daylight
I just might make it to work on time
- Mumford remake

I was late to my first day of work yesterday so I cut my run short this morning - 3 miles. Also I had to poop.

Desert blooms

I'm not sure if the desert gets more beautiful every year or if I'm just better at noticing. But look at this amazing tree/plant thingy! Right there on my run. It's so pretty here with all the blooming colors. I'm off work entirely this week as I decompress and recompress my brain into a good space. I start my new job in Monday! So I've been good about running every morning and did a 5.5 mile hike up to Toms Thumb on Sunday. Ive been spending mornings drinking iced tea at AJs and studying up on healthcare policy and also reading books and otherwise goofing off.

Today was truly a victory. I was up several times during the night because my neighbors car alarm kept going off and I kept thinking it was mine and that someone was trying to break in. Not a good night. Nevertheless, I persisted. Several times I decided to blow off the run and go back to sleep but when it mattered I actually got out of bed. I hit the road a full 30 minutes late but that doesn't really matter since I don't really have to be anywhere. So chalk one up for self discipline people!!! Also I'm listening to The Handmaids Tale which is all the buzz lately and it's quite creepy.
