Now that school had ended, my road to an amazing cross country season has begun. Every weekday this summer I will be waking up at 6:00 to train at the cross country course.
I have to say, the beauty at 6:00 a.m. is breathtaking. Seeing the sun come up, feeling the new dew evaporate, it’s all beautiful.
Fighting my lazy self really takes commitment. I’m guessing that forcing myself to get up and improve my body really builds willpower. (I go back to sleep afterward, though!)
I’m excited to see my progress by the end of the summer!
