A Forced Run....

This is how my day begins.....

5AM.....alarm clock goes off.  Do I set the alarm?, Do I need the alarm?.......No.  I am just the person who hits snooze about  a dozen times.  J needs the alarm.  J sets the alarm.  J does not hear the alarm. I hit the snooze, I get up let the dog out, feed her, come back to bed.....about the time that J is rolling out of bed.  Last night we (or rather I) were having a repeat conversation about how asinine this process was.

Asinine definition: Utterly Stupid

If he would get up when the alarm goes off, I would not get woken up, the dog would not get woken up.....and this whole process of me being up at the break of dawn could stop.  Then again I mentioned....simply mentioned .......tha since I am up anyway I should really be out running. Especially since its cool this time of day and I am a total loser for slacking. 

So this morning.......alarm goes off, I hit snooze several times, get up and open the door for the dog......She refuses to go out.  I slam the door and stop(childlessly) back to bed.  J gets up opens the door for the dog......and she gladly goes out for him, and he proceeds to get ready for work.  As he leaves he comes over, pulls the covers off and says get up and go for a run since you are up anyway.  I stand up and yell in his face " I would not be up if you would get up with your alarm". 

Okay I admit I was really rude.  I am a light sleeper........but I am not a morning person.

So I stomped to the armoire, grabbed sports bra and socks, got dressed, leashed the dog and headed out.  I get 5 steps off of the driveway and Miley stops.  I pull leash and get nothing.  Obviously she is not a morning person either.  I stomp back to the house and put her in bed with R.  I swear I am not going to let this run beat me.  I am up for godsake!  I hit the road.  I feel pretty good.  Walking and doing intervals of jogging.  A few miles later I am feeling better, my head is clear.....and I am feeling very glad I got J's push this morning. 

When I got back there was a sweet note waiting for me at the door.


Back in bed now.  Which is awesome.  Soon this will end.  Soon school will start.  Soon my classes will begin.  But for now....For now there is no agenda.
