On escaping the cold

I walk a couple miles every day during the week. From my apartment to the train stop, the train stop to the office, and back again. Also worth mentioning?

It’s really cold in NYC right now.

On the way home in the afternoons, it’s always tempting to escape the weather for a few moments and warm up in one of the many stores that I pass. The trouble is, this doesn’t get me home any faster. And I don’t make any progress when I’m doing what feels good in the short term.

Just keep swimming.
