I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't been there myself, but this morning when my 6 a.m. alarm went off, I didn't jump in the shower -- I put on some running shoes, bundled up (it was 50* after all!!), and went
A few days ago, I mentioned to C (who's been running on his own for over a year now) that I may want to join him. And I thought it may be something we could do in the mornings to jump start our day. Plus, it'd be a "couples" thing that didn't include sitting, watching TV, or eating (our 3 favorite things to do, naturally).
Surprisingly, he not only said yes, but was actually excited about the idea.
So this morning, I moaned and shivered and slowly made my way outside, where I ran exactly .9 miles in 14 minutes. Not exactly recording breaking - or honestly even sweat breaking - but it felt good. And it was something.
It's easy to fall into a "comfy" rhythm when it gets cold. Staying bundled up, warm, on the couch, cuddling with the one that you love while drinking hot chocolate. And while I plan on doing a ton of that too, I wanted to make sure that what we did as a couple was something we'd look back & be proud of.
Running together just made sense. And I can't wait to get back out there tomorrow with him!
Day one is complete!
