If you are running the Boston Marathon or any marathon for that matter, there are a LOT of early mornings. Most of us are not fortunate enough to run for a living so that often means getting up wicked early to get your run in before you head off to work or take care of other responsibilities.
This training session has been especially tough for me with an aggressive training plan (and coach) combined with a heavy work travel schedule. This brings new meaning to the "early workout" run when you live in Colorado, you have meetings in New Jersey, and you have an hour and 20 minute run planned. Worse that that was my trip to Barcelona. You know you're a runner when you say, "I really don't want to go to Barcelona because I don't know how I'm going to get my running in."
Do the math. You have to be on the trade show floor for meetings at 9AM and it takes a good 45 minutes to get there. Hour and 20 minute run, 20 minutes to get ready for work and that means my "early morning run" starts at 10 or 11 PM according to my body clock. Brutal yet beautiful as this morning's #30DaysToBoston #Photochallenge photo shows one of my early morning pix taken with the sun coming up over the Columbus Monument and Mediterranean Sea. Gorgeous and very #early.
