Much Respect

I did another five miles today.

Much respect to all you runners who get up early, lace up and hit the pavement. When I see you out on the trail, I smile. We're sharing something really amazing. I know how hard it is to wake up before dawn and be intentional about getting ready for a run. It's so much easier to just roll over and get some more sleep. Some may ask, "well, if it's so hard why keep doing it?" The answer is simple: I no longer have a choice. Running is part of me. It's like breathing.

So when I see you out there, just know that you have my respect.

Two thumbs up! Although I don't do my running in the early morning hours... like you, it is simply a way of life. And I'm just as appreciative of those that have made it a necessity as well.
