Measuring Up

I don’t sleep much. I know, I know. That explains why I comment on your blog in the middle of the night.

Seriously, I don’t think I ever recovered from early morning radio. To make my 5:30 am gig I’d be up at 3…and at the office no later than 4:00 am. I’ve been off-air for nearly 10 years and I still wake up early. Who do I sue?

Unless it’s a really long run, I normally do not venture out until sometime after 4:30 am. Hey, head out too early and somebody is sure to think you’re a quack. I don’t want that label. I live in a small town.

“Oakhill” is a challenging route that I used to run a fair bit. It is a measuring stick for me and today I measured up. A tough climb in about 1 hour.

Okay, you put me to shame. I don't get up till 4:40...after you've gone out. I go out around 5:15. I've already been labeled crazy, so I don't know where that leaves you!

Good for you for stepping back into it and measuring up!

"Waiting" until 4:30 to get started on a run. I'm not sure that really protects you from the quack label. ;-) 4:30 is prime dream time.

There's a 4:30 in the morning now???

First visit to your blog - nice work! My mom used to live in Bridgewater (after I left to University) and still talks about how much she misses it. I loved visiting here there, and did a lot of biking whenever I was around. This was long before I took up running, but it was a great place to ride. Swimming in the lake... Ah, now I miss it too!

Cheers!
