… March 1st, 2008, when I officially end my green challenge. But for now, I’m running outside only and conserving the electricity that would otherwise be used not just by the treadmill in my building, but by the lights I’d need to turn on in the gym and the TV I’d probably watch, too.
Considering I’m running at least four times a week these days — training for the Sporting Life 10K — I think it’ll make a significant difference. Obviously, by next February, when there’s no sun until 9 a.m. and four feet of snow on the ground, I’m going to have to become a serious runner, or a serious couch potato.
The other thing is, this isn’t Springtime in Paris, it’s Springtime in Toronto, so it’s still pretty nippy out there and I only have a couple pairs of jogging pants. Think Lululemon has the Reverse Groove Pant in organic hemp? That stuff will make my butt look cute too, right?
