Time to get fit!

Last night as Jeremy and I were doing dishes I asked for a favor.  I said can we get up in the morning together and say a prayer in the morning.  You know the saying couples that pray together stay together.  I want to stay together and think Heavenly Father is a big part of that!  So anyways I asked him and told him that my hidden agenda was to get up so I will get back into exercising.  It is a need!  I have 5 races planned this year.  Three 5K races (3rd Annual 5k Stars and Stripes run, San Fran 5K Color Run, and the Nitro Turkey on Thanksgiving morning), my first Ragnar experience (24 hour 12 person relay form San Fran to Napa) and my third time doing the See Jane Tri (A tri-sprint: 1/4mile swim, 12 mile bike, and 5k run).  So with that I need to start running and getting fit!  He happily agreed.  So when I went to bed last night I set my alarm for the 2:00am sugar check for the kids and the second for 5:50am.  My alarm went off this morning and I was really tired and couldn't believe I didn't set my 2:00am alarm or slept right through it.  Exhausted or not I had to bite the bullet and get up.  I woke Jeremy up and it took a minute or so to shake off the sleepies, but we managed.  We said our prayer and Jeremy stood up to head to the bathroom and said "Why does your clock say 2:22am?"  I am still chuckling over this one.  I did check the kids sugar and went back to bed but still.  I haven't been able to have a sound thought at 2:00am for a while so it wasn't surprising that the digital 2 looked like a 5!  Then when I came home for exercising this morning I saw this and had a good laugh again!
As always it was worth it to get up and get the blood pumping.  I am so grateful to a dear friend Lanette who has spent the last five years being there and leading a circut type class twice a week.  I am thankful for her consistency over the years!  Now off to the races!
