Once Upon a Time, I was an Early Morning Runner



It's hard to believe there was ever a time when I consistently got up and out the door before the sun came up. Raun or shine, hot or cold, it didn't matter. I got up and got it done - and it felt great.



These days, it feels like more often than not, I can barely manage to get out of bed in enough time to get myself and the girls ready and out the door on time.

After Saturday's disastrous run, I promised myself that today would be the day that I started getting up early again and running before the heat and daily obligations begin. So I laid out my running gear last night and even got in bed at 9:30. And then my toddler woke up at 12:30...and ended up in bed with us, tossing, turning, and kicking all night long. You can imagine how "rested" I felt when the alarm went off at 4:50 am...

So yeah, that early morning 5 miler? Didn't happen. I got out of bed at 5:30 still feeling very groggy and did 21 Day Fix Upper Fix. That was all I could manage. I seem to have lost the ability to go from 0 to 60 first thing in the morning.

Alas, it will be another evening run for mommy today. And naturally, there's a good chance it's going to rain. Ugh.

Happy Monday.

How did you start your day today?
