What are your non-negotiables? What are the things you must do for yourself and what are the lines that you just won’t cross? What would cause you to hit a limit and change your behavior? I am 5’4″ and a 1/2″ (every half inch counts!) and there was a time in my life when I weighed 165 lbs. Most people said I carried it well (perhaps they were being kind), but I wasn’t happy and I didn’t have any energy.

I’m working on my water consumption. I’ve been working on it for a while, and it’s the one thing that I consistently struggle with in terms of my nutrition habits. This may sound odd coming from a person who has drastically changed her eating habits over the past 10 years, but the food changes I’ve made – for whatever reason – have not been as much of a challenge for me as regularly getting enough liquid into my system. This is a little embarrassing to admit, given that proper hydration is crucial to a distance runner.
