Today was the beginning of a New, Early Rising, Physically Fit, Goal Accomplishing Me. I wanted to get up at 5 but I went to bed around midnight so I set my alarm for 7:30. After cozying tighter under my covers for ten minutes after it went off and deliberating whether to actually do it or not, I dragged my lazy-bum self out of bed and went for a run in Rexburg's 15 degree air. It only lasted about ten minutes. Honestly, I could really only handle running around the block. The cold, cold, COLD air just about killed my lungs. However, I was proud of myself because I really did not want to step a foot outside my door, largely due to the fact that I looked NOT like this:
but more like this:
Awesome. I know. and I can guarantee that I was seen by no less than 100 people (okay maybe not 100, but it felt like it!). 7:30am is NOT the time to go for a run on the streets of this college town if you don't want to be seen, especially not the street I live on. But I was determined; it had to be done.
Tomorrow I am getting up at 5am. Maybe I'll walk to the gym and run on a treadmill. Or maybe I'll just do jumping jacks in my living room...
