It is 4:40. My alarm is going off.
What do I have to get done. Why do I have to get up.
Oh. Wait. Rob is home. (Picture me noticing my sleeping husband as if he had not been there all night.)
I am going running.
I only slept 6 hours, but I get to run.
I get to be me before anyone needs anything from me.
I make my coffee and I drink the entire cup while it is still hot, no one needs anything, no one is talking.
My house is silent and I head out into the cool, dark morning.
I love it, the morning air is still crisp.
I meet friends and we run. A quick five miles. It feels good.
I spend the rest of the day feeling content and happy.
I miss this. I need this.
Enjoy the run,
