Some days fly by.
Last year I attended a TED talk given my by company. The CEO, Alex Gorsky, really is a phenomenal man. He practices what he preaches and I felt (and still feel) so proud to be a part of his company. He is super active, runs marathons and always participates in the yearly company sponsored triathlon. He also needs to travel the world for business on a regular basis.
Something he said really rang true to me. He said “I have no control over what the day throws at me, but I can control how early I wake up.”
Although I’m not a CEO, I feel the same way about being a working mom & wife. Since I’ve started waking up earlier, I feel like I’ve added so much “free” time to my day.
Although it’s not glamorous. Proof below.
Today we needed to get the kids up, dressed, and fed so I could be out the door by 7:30.
My run started around 5:45am, it was so beautiful out this morning!
I ran a nice 3.5ish mile loop around my neighborhood. It was bright, it was the perfect themperature, the sun was shining through the trees, hardly any cars out… I ran into several deer though. Those pesky buggers weren’t even scared!
When I got home there was someone who had just woken up and was waiting for me by the door
Before I could even stop sweating, we had work to do. It was breakfast time!
It wasn’t fast, but it felt good.
