You know what makes running before the sun comes up in Minnesota in late November much better?
I got in a great couple of laps around Lake Harriet this morning thanks to my buddy (and fellow #MNRunnerd) Brady putting out a feeler on Twitter last night about needing an early morning running buddy. I’m glad she did, because it’s much, much easier to get out of bed, wake one’s self up, and get some solid miles in before the sun comes up with a partner. The laps seem a lot shorter, and the bitter cold is hardly noticeable. As I continue to gear up for the Securian Frozen Run in late January, these runs are going to be vital to my training.
What do you do to get yourself out of bed for early morning runs??
