how my husband can wake up at 5 a.m. on a Sunday morning to run 16 miles."
That's how my wife's Facebook status read when I came back from my long run on Sunday. I really don't have a sense of humor, so I'm not going to make a lame attempt at writing a humorous entry. Instead, I'll say that my wife really does understand why I do it. Getting my miles in early in the day is my way of fitting my hobby/sport/obsession/addiction into my daily life. I've previously blogged about my struggles to balance, work, running, and family. So far, my early morning schedule (not just on Sundays) is working out well. I've always been a morning person, so waking up at 5 a.m. is no big deal. I turn into a pumkin after 9 p.m. What my wife doesn't understand is how anyone in their right mind can wake up at 5 a.m. She is not a morning person.
