Toughest part of running: Getting out the door

The alarm was set to 4:45 a.m. for Tuesday morning's 14 mile run, but after the alarm sounded I stayed in bed another 10 minutes trying to come up with a good excuse not to run (sinus headache, not enough sleep, too cold, snowed last night).  What finally got me out of bed was imagining explaining to myself later in the day why I hadn't run.

Ready, laced up, but couldn't find the insulated hat (another good excuse: can't run with "no hat" when it's 18 degrees out), but then the hat turned up and I was out the door and running by 5:30 a.m..  A little later than planned, but glad I made it.  Worked the Upper Charles River Trail into a 14 mile Hopkinton-Milford-Hopkinton loop.
