I never sleep late on weekends. Sleeping in is just not part of my DNA. However, that doesn’t mean I always get going right away. I love getting up, making coffee, and enjoying some time on my own before my husband gets up. I’m awake, but I’m pretty lazy.
This morning that wasn’t an option though. I got up early with Blue and while he ate his breakfast I made sure I ate mine too. We had to get to our favorite 3 year old’s birthday party at 10, which meant I needed to get my 8 mile run in before we left. I thought about putting it off, but knew that it wouldn’t happen if I did. So at 7:00 I laced up my shoes and stepped out the door and began my run.
And I’m so happy I did!
The early morning was gray but as time and miles clicked by the sky brightened, birds chirped, and the world came alive. It was truly breathtaking and I would have missed it if I’d stayed cozy in my living room.
Sometimes the hardest part of going for a run is getting out the door. But once I’m out there it’s always worth it.
