{Two Things Tuesday} Boston & Running in the AM

1) I did indeed manage to make it out of bed this morning for a run in Boston before the conference that I’m attending got under way.  I have to say that I was amazed part way through my run to realize that I was running along a river in Boston in shorts and a long sleeve shirt in the middle of December.  It was a beautiful morning, with tons of runners out pounding the pavement before their days got under way.

Good Morning Boston!

2) This whole event reminded me how much better my day always starts when I force myself to get out there. And yes, I do have to force myself.  I will openly admit that I have migrated completely away from hoping out of bed in the am to get a workout in.  I always opt for the evening if given the choice.  I’m the master of hitting the snooze button.  But days like today, and hopefully tomorrow remind me that I need to break that habit.  If I hadn’t gotten up this am, there would have been no shot at a run until around 9 PM tonight.  And I know that at 9 PM, it would have been simple to say no.  So, I’m glad that I drug myself out of bed this morning.  It’s changed my whole outlook on the day.

How about you?  Are you a morning runner?
