Yep, I'm off to a great start with being consistent ha. Now that it's snowy here in Rexburg it's hard to motivate myself to go out and run, especially because the roads aren't plowed well. But today I was antsy to get out. I always feel so much better after a run. It was nice out today, 35 and sunny. The snow is starting to melt and the sidewalks were pretty clear. I wasn't sure how good it would be, but I was pleasantly surprised. I knew it wasn't going to be the best feeling run because of how much time I've taken off and my inconsistency. But it felt really nice for the first 2.5 miles. Then it was hard to breathe. To be expected, I'm out of shape. Sawyer and I are going to start running together more often, it'll help us both be more motivated to get out. Sometimes I just feel bad because I'm kinda slow lol. He's actually in decent shape and has been far more consistent than I have. Anyways, 8:09 average for today.

Out and back on farm run, 8:06 average. It was cold but sunny so it actually felt like a pretty nice run

Also, in case you haven't figured it out yet Sawyer and I are dating :) we're thinking about getting married in April, which is kinda crazy but exciting

Decided to make up for yesterday so I did a 10 miler :) it was bitter cold and the wind almost froze my face off, but hey it was worth it :) 8:02 average.

Sawyer and I both leave for Utah tomorrow, then Sawyer flies out to Illinois/Iowa Thursday. Hooray for break!

On another note, I'm really grateful for the struggles that I've had with depression because they've made me better able to help others also struggling. This semester was a rough one for some of my roommates, but a humbling experience for me to be able to empathize and help in ways that I know would've been beneficial for me last year. One roommate had some serious difficulties with depression and PTSD earlier this semester after an assault, and today I took my other roommate to the Student Health Center to get a consultation because she expressed to me that she's been having suicidal thoughts. I'm grateful for resources and places where we can go to get help if we need it.

Merry Christmas! Debated running, then Hattie exclaimed, "it's Christmas! You don't need to go running!" And so I didn't

Wasatch loop up to the zoo. At first I didn't feel great but I got into the groove and thought why not go longer? I was tired by the end though
