Early Riser


For the past few weeks I’ve been setting my alarm early to go for a run outside before work, but it just does not happen.  I wake up feeling groggy desperately needing an extra hour of sleep so that’s what I do.  This morning I told myself I was not going to “sleep in”.  I was out the door by 6:45 am–still not necessarily as early as I would have liked to be out and moving but at least I made it and was able to log 2-3 miles. 

As spring will soon turn to summer I look forward to getting out the door early. In all honesty, there is not much of a choice in the matter because beating the heat and humidity by running early in the morning is a must!  The rest of the day is so much more pleasing when my workout has already been covered.  So I’ll be working on my marathon-training schedule to make morning runs a priority this summer.  Sleeping until 7 am will seem like a luxury soon enough!

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...

    I’ve been doing the same thing. I have my alarm set for 5:30 every morning, but I always snooze for an extra hour or two. But you’re right, in the summer…if you dont run at dawn (well, BEFORE dawn), then you’re asking for trouble.
