GO RUNNING!!!

Who likes to receive a text like this... ONE minute after your alarm goes off?

I do....And I NEEDED it!

Here is the back story:

I got in bed at 9:36 PM and had plans to get up at 5:30 AM to run. But I know ME and I knew there was a 90% chance I would hit snooze and roll over and go back to bed. Lucky for me RED is visiting from WA and like a true, good friend she volunteered to text me a wake up call. I was prepared to go back to sleep, even after the text. But when she said, "Zero ICK when you're done." I knew she was right! I knew I didn't want to be mad at myself tonight, like I was last night. So off I went....and now, as we sit hanging out I am super duper glad I hit the road early! Otherwise we would be running and not doing this:

Sometimes I just need a little extra push to get up and hit the road....I know if she hadn't sent me that text I would not have gotten up.

  4. Friends are awesome!! Lucky for me my husband is my accountability partner. He's usually up at 4am every morning and he really just doesn't like to see me sleep, so I can always count on him to come in and say - aren't you working out, even when sometimes I had plans not work out!

  10. Nice! Running buddies are the best! I actually managed to get up at 4:45 to meet a group that was starting an 11 mile run at 5:30 this morning. Might need a nap later, though. :)
