Morning Run

Beep.

I hear my alarm.
I struggle against my blankets which are keeping me safe and warm in my bed.
The air is cold and I shiver.

Beep.
I start my watch.
My legs are stiff and tired, not yet ready to move.
I wait to ease into the movement.

Beep.
Mile 1
I am loose and relaxed, so I pick up the pace.
Things feel good.

Beep.
Mile 2
I am half way through.
Not much longer.

Beep.
Mile 3
I begin to feel the fast pace, and I take a deep breath to slow my heart rate.
Almost there.

Beep.
Mile 4
I sprint to the end, racing against myself.
I breathe.

Beep.
I stop my watch.
I stretch.
I am ready for the day.
