Thursday morning I got up early in order to run my scheduled six miles before heading to my part-time-tutor-job for the day.
I don't usually get up before sunrise. I NEVER get up before 5am. But I did this week.
It turned out to be a glorious start to the day. When I got to the park to start my trail run, I discovered nearly a dozen other runners already there. They were apparently at the turn around for their own morning run. I joined in.
I found my people! These are the folks who are as crazy as I am - the runners who are out getting the miles in when no one else can see them. I am part of this community.
