So today, I had about the same longing to get up and run as I usually do – NONE! I am NOT a morning person, but by the time I reach the end of my run, I am so pleased that I did. I know with certainty that I would have turned off my alarm this morning and rolled over to catch another hour of sleep, if I didn’t have my friend “B” holding me accountable. It is rough getting up, but I enjoy chatting with her while we run. It’s kind of a labored breathing conversation intermittent with a couple words shoved in between breaths, but at least it is a conversation!! “B” makes me run harder and we have so much more fun. Today the end of our 53 minute run was greeted by a breathtakingly beautiful sunrise, (You can see the photo here) and it inspired me so much that I continued to walk by myself for another 20 minutes, which allowed me to complete a total of 5.22 miles. It wasn’t a breeze by any means, but I still did it!
