Musing: Will there be time to run in law school?

My life has been relaxed recently.  My schedule is my own: I make it as busy or as free as I like.  This means that I have been able to fill my spring calendar with race after race, and plot training schedules to the day and the mile. How will this change when I begin law school? Will my body become super-charged to the point where I can wake up early and run before class everyday? Will my runs be energizing instead of energy-depleting? At this juncture, I am telling myself that of course I will make time for running and the occasional 5k (and don’t think I haven’t researched half-marathons in each city I’m considering attending school)- but is this realistic? I will not know until I get there, but if my law school life is anything like Scott Turow’s in 1L, then my training days look like they will be few and far between. I sure hope not…
