So when I heard about this group only 20 minutes away, I got so excited. Only to find out they run at 5 am on weekdays. Significantly less excited. I did truly give it my shot to go this morning, woke up at 4:15, drove there, and was too late. Since it's a dark place I didn't want to run around like a mad woman looking for them, and I gave up and came home.
This time--I'm prepared. It's 8:30, and I'm in my PJs and practicing my form for the 5am run.
My clothes for the morning are all laid out in the bathroom, right down my my socks and headband. (And if you're wondering, I've already got my running panties on so no freezing cold morning changes need to happen. TMI?)
I don't know much about this group, other than the fact that they wake up freakishly early. There is only 4 or 5 of them on an average run, and the pace is pretty slow and casual. I'm really looking forward to running with some new people. Plus--I hear running outside is fun? Should be interesting. It's been 10 days since I've run outside. Weird.
If there is no post tomorrow, assume I have been abducted by fellow runners before dawn.
Are you an early morning exerciser? What time do you go to bed & wake up?
My normal routine is bed around 11, waking up at 7. I need my beauty sleep. So the new plan is bed around 9 and up at 4:15. Even typing it sounds horrible.
Do you ever run with a group? How far would you travel to run with someone on a regular basis?
I have never really run with a group of people outside of a race. I'd like to, but like I said there aren't many options around here. I will be happy if this group works out, maybe just for a once a week chance to get outside and have an easy run.
