Conquered

Sep 27

Today I finally got myself out of bed at 5:30 am and was all dressed, had coffee and was out the door for 6 am to go running.

It has always been a battle of wills between me and my brain and today I won!  Getting out of bed so early was always the hard part.  Although I didn’t do a long run, it was enough to put a pep in my step for the rest of the day. It was still dark, the sky was full of beautiful shining stars and other than a little bit of traffic here and there, it was quiet.

I was done my breakfast, shower, and had three (yes, ouch) cups of coffee before the kids were even out of bed!   I didn’t have to think about running after I dropped off the kids at school and can focus on other things today now that I have been putting off.

I definitely think I will continue this running to be an early morning activity. It was enjoyable and I am so happy that I finally discovered I should have been doing this all along!

Now (yawn), I may need more coffee!
