Let me just say that I hate getting up early for anything. I consider the fact that I sometimes wake up (insanely) early to run as the single most definitive statement regarding my commitment to running. It's hard to get out of bed, get dressed and get out the door, but once I get going I feel pretty good. The one thing I love about getting my run in early is that once the actual day gets started you almost forget that you ran. At work today it was almost surreal to think I had done a long run in the morning. I ran 12 miles this morning and was home just about the same time I'd normally be getting up. That is pretty cool.
In regards to my last post, Mario loves medals!
Here he is with the "You're My Champion" medal they gave out at Disney to give to family/friends. I got two out of the Goofy Challenge so one one to Boyfriend, one to Mario.
