So tired, but good things are happening....

I. am. tired!!! 

Waking at 4:30 to run is taking its toll on me...BIGTIME!  I fell asleep yesterday afternoon while reading.  I have contemplated drinking coffee, but I still think the taste is awful.  I feel like I am being super lazy at the house.

The good treadmill arrives on Tuesday!  I cannot wait.  I will be able to sleep a little later on some days.  I can run at night if I want to sleep in the morning.  I am thinking this is going to be life changing for the very least life changing for my energy level.

The crazy thing about being tired is that I have had some of the best runs ever in the past few weeks.  My legs and mind are tired, but I have persevered.  I have run a 1,000 miles this year.  With four months left in 2011, I am aiming for 1,500!  I ran my first sub-7min mile the other morning.  The great thing about that mile is that it was the fourth mile of my run and I still had some left in the tank after that mile!  I was giddy when I looked at my watch. 

I can only imagine how great my runs can be when I am less tired!
