It worked!

Thanks for the help! With the exception of Viper, who simply suggested I take the time to "sleep it off" rather than get up and run, I found all the tips very helpful! Danielle suggested I make some friends. Easier said than done. Glaven suggested electric long underwear. What a strange and tormented soul. Aron's suggestion to put my phone in another room was successful in getting me out of my warm bed. I also had on 37 layers (thanks, Adam) and was sweating by the end of my 5 miler through town. It felt great to start the day like that! I also had some motivation emailed my way via this website. The RD stated that I'll be competing, rather than just running. Now I need to get some speed work in!

Arrrrrggghhh!! If my - ouch! - torment - Oooo, that smarts! - helped you, Nic - Ai-yi-yi, that's uncomfortable!! - then it has all been worth it.

I meant to - ow! - suggest an electric hair shirt. (Ouchie!) So you could share in the torment. (Ar-ROOOO-gah!)

Great job getting in the am run. Best to just avoid most advice from Viper. And Glaven too.

If you found the secret, bottle it and sell it to the rest of us. I choose sleep.

I've really enjoyed my sleep. My advice works for me.

How about you just set the alarm on the Mrs side of the bed? She'll kick your ass out for sure ;-)
