If I make a promise....

... to you guys that I'll run 10 miles tomorrow morning at 6:30, I wonder if I can keep it?

I need a good long run this weekend (the Half is only 2 weeks away!), & tomorrow morning is my only window of opportunity. Before the kids are up, before the husband's up, before the rain comes.

But I hate mornings. With a passion. And a 6:30 run means I have to wake up at 6 A.M. so I can dress, eat, & drink. Ugh. That is way too early.

But. I need to run. And as much as I hate early mornings, I love running more.

I just hope I remember that tomorrow when the alarm goes off.

You can do it! Mostly because if you don't get up early tomorrow, you'll have to dread doing that 10 all day tomorrow until Sunday morning.

And just think of all the carbs you'll need to eat to replace that 10 miles of energy you're using tomorrow!

You can do it! I'm going to try to get up early to run as well.

Girlfriend, if I can drag my azz out of bed every morning at 5:30 to go do something I hate (work), then I KNOW you can drag yours out at 6:00 to do something you love. Do it, you will feel amazing when it's over!! ;)

You can do it...and when you're done, you'll feel GREAT!! Hope that thought is enough to get you up when that alarm rings...I have problems with mornings too... ;-)

Hey, you can do it!! And the best part will be the whole rest of the day, with that smug "I already ran" feeling. Also, running in the rain is one of my favorite things, if you do chicken out of the early morning run. Wear a billed cap to keep the rain off your face, no cotton, and I swear, it feels so good.

Hey Laura,

LOL I'm doing the same thing. 6:30 my long run before my race. I'm running a 10 mile race on the 26th and will run 9 or 10 tomorrow morning. I'll think good thoughts westward toward you. We're expecting beautiful weather. Hope you are too. Just think how wonderfully accomplished we'll feel.
