Running through the Seasons

Running has been a friend of mine for a long time. This has been especially true during the pandemic – I can always lace up my shoes and go for a run, even if gyms are closed and yoga classes are canceled. Of course, not all runs are equal. Sometimes it feels like a slog, and sometimes it feels like I’m flying. Recently, I’ve become increasingly curious in digging into the factors that influence this variation in how my runs go.

In the early days, as restaurants closed and many of us lost jobs or started working from home, my Twitter feed was abuzz with interest in the kinds of slow kitchen projects that keep you ducking in and out of the kitchen all day. Suddenly there was abundant time at home to simmer a slow-cooking pot of beans or bake sourdough.
