The Return to O'Dark Thirty

This morning, I got up and was out the door for a pre-dawn run. It's been a few weeks since I've been able to muster the energy and resolve to run first thing in the morning, but today, I was up and on the road by 5:15 am for a 3 miler (31:12). And as painful as it is to get up and run at that hour, admittedly, it sure is nice to have it done. Plus, it's nice to be showered and ready for the day before Norah gets up -- just makes the whole morning easier.

As for the run, I got to wear a new shirt that I bought yesterday at Target: Despite how much I love shopping for running clothes online or at my LRS, Target really is a great place for affordable picks, and I think the quality of the apparel is pretty good too. So, I almost always cruise by the sportswear section when I'm on a Tar-Jay run, and yesterday I spied this tech tee, as well as several others that were similar. For $14, you really can't beat the price, or in this case, the style!

And, after running in it this morning, I think it just may well be my new favorite running shirt!

I was up early for a run this morning too . . . getting out of bed is tough, but it is a great way to start the day.

Tar-Jay - Awsome! Always. I began my o' dark thirty runs yesterday... the first day back is always the worst, but today was great!

Target also has these really awesome (and cheap) non-cotton running socks. I have a million pairs of them.

Great deal! Strong work on getting out there so early!

Vermont is the ONLY state in the country without a Target! That is so unfair! Love your new shirt. And I totally agree with your opening lines. I hate hate hate getting up early to run before work but love having it over with. I am cheery all day.
