I’m not a morning person. I do not like to get out of bed before 9 am. 10 would be ideal really, but I have kids, and a husband, and a cat who gets hungry way too early for my tastes. So, during the week I always get up earlier than I really want.

So how do you explain that for the last three weeks I’ve been bouncing out of bed at 6:30am? That this morning I was fine with realizing that I might have to get up at 6:15 if I want to keep running before the kids need to be at school? That I’m usually awake before the alarm even goes off and excited about it?

Well, we’ve already concluded that I’ve discovered that I love to run. But still, there’s the love of the sport and then there’s the morning. They don’t have to meet. And yet, if I don’t want to throw away an entire morning that needs to be spend on work, I need to get to the Y early.

So at night, before I go to bed, I peruse Pinterest and look for inspirational posters about running. Here are the 9 that are most instrumental in getting me out of bed in the morning and keeping me running past the point where I would be tempted to give up. (I pin more every week. Come be inspired too!)

 

What gets you out of bed or off the couch?
