Almost a Rite of Passage

Every Sunday night, I take a moment to look at the calendar and see what's ahead in the coming week. I plan when I'm going to run and adjust days if necessary. However, this past week was not looking good. I had one too many things scheduled after school that would prevent me from running then or would force me to go running much later than I'd like. 

It was then that I realized I would have to do something I didn't think I could do: run before work. That's when MarathonMike runs... not me! Yes, I can run early on Saturdays but it's way too early on a weekday. But, I had no choice... I had to run before school. 

On Tuesday, my alarm went off at 5:15am and I was out the door by 5:45am. I had my reflective vest, a blinking light and my Road ID

As soon as I got back, I emptied the dishwasher, so I know that I had some kind of positive experience from my early run. I also had the satisfaction of being done with my run before I even started the day. This was one small step towards marathon-ing in just 5 weeks.
