Oh what a beautiful, wet morning

Well, my day started off with the alarm going off at 5:00 A.M. and me getting up and getting ready to run. I've been getting up at 5:15 all week and getting out to run by 5:30 (yes, it takes me 15 minutes to get ready to go running because I need to get dressed, pull the top of my hair back and brush my teeth so I don't knock myself out from my morning breath blowing back in my face as I run), but today I had special plans. So, Brian got in the shower and while he was in there, I surprised him and made him breakfast. Yeah, it was just scrambled eggs with cheese in them and toast, but he was surprised and happy and that's all I cared about. Once I was done making his breakfast, I laced up my running shoes and took off for my morning run. Let's just say that this lovely Michigan weather we've been having added an extra experience to my running today. It started out as just a mist, but began to actually rain by the time I was just a little over half way through my run. This caused me to come to a sad realization...I'm not made of sugar as I had previously thought. Oh well, I guess I was bound to learn that sooner or later. I came home looking like a drowned rat, but to a very happy and thankful husband who gave me a big hug and kiss (even though I was soaked with rain and sweat) and thanked me again for the breakfast I had made. I sweetly told him not to start expecting it and to buy some pop-tarts if he did (Now, didn't you see that coming? It is me, afterall.) All in all, it was a fantastic way to start my day and I'm feeling great. I'm so proud of myself for getting up so early for the past 4 days and getting out and running (even when the weather wasn't the best). I'm taking my running shoes and heart rate monitor with me this weekend to my Aunt and Uncle's house and I will be running every morning while I'm there too. I'm seeing and feeling a change in myself (not weight-wise yet, but in more important ways) and I'm not going to give up on myself. Thank you, Lord, for this beautiful wet morning.
