5am runs
March 15, 2012

Are you aware that at 4:45am the sun is not yet up?  It’s still dark outside.  I know right, who would have guessed? Not I, however this morning the impossible happened, I went for a run at 5am.

I have been building up to this for quite some time with every good intentions to get out of bed and go for an early morning run – however in 4 months this is the FIRST time it has actually happened.  I set my alarm for 4:45am and only hit the “snooze” button once – I was stretched and ready to go by 5am.  If you don’t believe in miracles that in itself should change your mind.

…. and so I set off into the dark unknown or “around the area” as I normally call it

Let me give you some background as to why I am setting off for a run at 5am, see, I got this thing called a J.O.B and I started on Wednesday works starts anytime between 7-9am, however can you IMAGINE traffic from Fourways to Milpark any time after 7:30am?  It could be compared to a nuclear bomb its so bad, hence the 5am run to be done by 6am and showered and ready to go by 6:45am. Which is exactly what happened.

Oh the run was good too, 5.21kms in 47mins. *booty shake*
