The birds woke me up at 4:00 this morning. I felt like I had been drugged. That hadn’t change much by 5:30 when I drug myself out of bed and put on my shoes to go run. I gradually woke up as I ran.
My time was a little slow. In the past, I would have beaten myself up for not making progress, especially considering my last run!
I don’t know if it is due to age or having a better grasp on reality or perhaps both, but here is how I look at now:
1. I woke up. That is something to be thankful for.
2. I actually put my shoes on and ran this morning when I clearly did not feel like it!
3. I ran 3.8 miles! At my age, that is great!
4. I’m not training for some competition. I’m not trying to impress anyone. I’m just trying to preserve my health and I did that this morning!What a great way to start the day!
