There are so many reasons to NOT get up early, lace up the sneakers, and head out the front door.
The mosquitoes are crazy right now, the pollen is thick in the air, and face it who wants to roll out of bed in the morning to hit the road and get the heart pumping.
Funny with the exception of feeding the mosquitoes, two of the enemies are part of the motivation to go.
More reasons to suck it up, time spent with my handsome son who unlike other 15 year olds still wants to spend time with his mom.
The quiet of the morning or the riveting sound of the motivators voice on the podcasts we listen to. Trying to encourage him to strive for greatness, whatever that looks like for him.
Then there is just the joy of being in nature, the beautiful surprises we find.
We may not make it every morning, I have to accept my limits for now, but every time we go is one step closer to the goal. And there is always the precious treasures we find.
