In the cover of darkness
QUACK QUACK QUACK---was the lovely noise I woke up to this morning thanks to my husband’s new "asleep" ap on his I phone. It was A little bit jarring, but effective, who knew an electronic duck would help me get my butt in motion!! I decided 6 am is the best time, I have tried every other time of day and if it is not first thing in the morning--it is NEVER. Also I love the cool dark air, but mostly the darkness because then I don’t have to look people in the eye as I jingle all the way. I like to avoid the "hello" and "morning" 'cause there is only enough air in my lungs to focus on not dying. Do you ever see those ladies out running who look like they just came back from the glamour shots booth? No thanks, I’ve got my stained bright red pajama pants, a PTA shirt from my nephew’s school, a greasy pony, and the cover of darkness, take THAT Marathon Barbie!! But ouch, these new shoes hurt, my feet are so much more used to the flat, ripped FILA sandals from 8th grade--who knew that arch support could hurt!?
