Check me out running at 5:30 in the morning. :)

I can feel it! I'm starting to get back into the groove of running again. :)

 I had my alarm set for 6:00 this morning, but thanks to pregnancy I woke up at 5:30 to pee. I figured I didn't want to go back to bed for 30 minutes and then not want to get up, so I got dressed and went for my run. It's so nice getting out there early like that cause I'm finishing when every one's starting.

I like to be alone while I run. Sure, sometimes I get jealous of the groups of girls out there running together, but in the long run I like to just be by myself. I can go as slow as I want and not have to worry about keeping up with anyone else. Plus, I'm not a big talker when it comes to running, I like to focus on my run.

I ate a GU and drank some water right before I left and it seemed to help cause I felt great the whole time. I didn't feel hungry until about mile 5.5. My muscles are fine, a little achy, but that's to be expected. I just made sure to stretch and all that jazz.

The best part of my run was my reward...

 
YUM!!!
They were PERFECT! Just right with the gooey/roll like consistency. Mmmmm.....

Nice job on the morning run. And, gorgeous picture.

I'm not a big talker when I run too. But, once I'm done, there is no shutting me up!
