Why Do I Get Up So Early to be So Uncomfortable!?!?!

The cold and dark and dismal Autodromo at 6:45 in the morning

in Mexico City on a Sunday

Our toes fingers and toes numb up as

we ride our bikes around the trackImage

the cold turning our noses red

and I wonder

why did I leave my bed????

And then the light of the sun begins to shine

and my toes and


begin to dethaw

and my heart slows

my breath regulates

and I know even with a long road

ahead we will make it and maybe it will be hImageard but easeful because

the sun has our backs

and you even say at the end

“That was fun! When do we do it again?”

One response to “Why Do I Get Up So Early to be So Uncomfortable!?!?!

  1. This is sooooooo true! I swear that there are at least two different people living inside of me-the one that says, “tomorrow morning I’m getting up early and I’m going to the gym.” My heart skips with excitement as I prepare my gym bag and the one that wakes me up in the morning that whines, “Noooooooooooo I don’t want to exercise! I want to sleeeeep!
    Once again you say this so succinctly!
