If you are like me, you are definitely not a morning person. I've always wanted to change this, to be productive in the morning and get stuff done . . . I've just lacked the motivation to actually do it. I have all I can do to wake up and get Audrey outside in the morning before work, and I HAVE to do that. So how is it that there are many individuals who can spring up in the morning, hit the gym and/or the streets, and get their work out done before the day has even begun?

My thinking is this: Once you get into that morning routine, you must feel exponentially better all day long, or there is no reason to continue it.

Now this is not something I have ever experienced first-hand, but I am going to find out. So this week, with you all as my witness, I shall get up early and go for a run every day. Yes, there are only three days left this week, which is partially why I want to give it a shot. I do not want to set myself up to fail! I'll let you guys know how it works out on Friday, and how I like the experiment. What I am hoping to get out of it is a new routine that really kick-starts my day, because one day I'd like to be able to run to and from work, year 'round.

Stay tuned!
