Early Morning Run

I've always been an advocate for morning runs and morning workouts, but this morning I really took what I say to an extreme.

It started yesterday when I thought about what I wanted to accomplish this morning.  I wanted to get at least 8 miles in, but the days have been getting hotter and hotter, quicker and quicker.  So I figured the best solution to my problem was to wake up early myself.

That's exactly what I did.  I woke up around 5:15 this morning, and after a few minutes of refusing to wake up, I finally started to move around.  I still wasn't too keen on getting moving, but I did.  However, it was one quote I found on pinterest that really got me ready for my run...

It just hit me for some reason and I was able to get out of bed, get my shoes on, and start my run.

I did end up getting my 8 miles in, 8.43 to be exact, and I was home before the sun really even got over the horizon.  Considering today is my day off of work, a nap is definitely somewhere in my future (possibly very soon).  Although the coolest thing I saw this morning wasn't the sunrise, but a shooting star I saw at the beginning of my run.  Yes, I made a wish on it... and no, I'm not going to share my wish.
