Putting My Stamp on Today
This is a blog I wrote, pre-Covid. But as I reviewed it today I realized it still speaks of what I value about an early workout. Enjoy!
I drove to the gym this morning at 5:45. It was dark and raining. I felt intrepid as I drove down a suburban street on my way to the fitness center even though I was sipping French Roast and listening to music. Then I saw a man in reflective clothing running outside on the sidewalk. Now I mentioned that it was raining; but actually it was pouring. That runner, I decided, was really INTREPID.
Still, in some ways that runner and I were both doing the same thing. We were both up early putting our stamp on the day.
I don’t know about you, but I never ever regret a workout. When I do one—even a hard one--I always feel more in charge, and frankly, happier. I think it’s because I’ve claimed a piece of the day and made it my own.
