Lately I have been lacking a whole lot of motivation... for running, blogging, parenting... really just about everything. (Well, everything except finishing books 2 and 3 of the Hunger Games series, I did manage to get that done over the past few days, thanks to a good friend who loaned me her copies.) Last night I went to a girls' night where we played "Just Dance 3" until the wee hours of the morning (11pm... trust me, that's late for me.) Before I left I got my running stuff ready so that I could get up this morning and get my run in sans stroller. I knew it would be hard to pull myself out of bed after only a few hours of sleep (it was well after midnight when I finally "wound down" enough to fall asleep) but I also knew that it was important as today's weather forecast called for lots of rain and high winds... which is not very conducive for stroller running. However, when 4:40am rolled around and I was rudely awakened from my dream about dancing camels and I heard nothing but pounding rain and blowing trees, sleep won out.
