Early Morning Boulder Run

I set my alarm for 5:50 a.m. and got up and by 6:02am.

I had my shorts on and was out the door for a 30 minute run


Normally I am just going to bed!  Kidding.

I knew if I didn’t go for a run and do some gentle yoga before my big day starts today

MY OTHER RECIPES

…that I’d have ants in my pants, especially after my long travel day yesterday.

I even spotted this pretty creek

Totally what I imagined Boulder would be like.


And I spotted the Prana store!

I love Prana.

My two favorite yoga brands of all time are Be Present (like I mentioned here) and Prana

And now, it’s time for me to get to class!

It was fun hearing your take on how far in advance you like to get to the airport and just how much cushion and padding time-wise you roll with.

Questions:

1. Do you find it easy or hard to get motivated for early workouts?

I have a post on my early/morning workout motivation tips (but could be applied to any kind of workout motivation tips)

2. If you’re a runner, when you get to a new city do you plan your runs, look at maps, consult your digital devices like your iPhone or Garmin, or do you just wing it?

I am 100% a wing-it girl!

  1. how do you take pictures on your run?

  2. I loved reading this post! Run recaps with fantastic photos of tracks and SHOPS are my blog orgasm, so I hope I’ll see more posts as beautiful as this.
    I hope you enjoy your photography seminar

  3. Boulder is SO lovely. We also LOVE Nederland, the more secluded mountain town with it’s own “People’s Coop”. Love Boulder but it is so pricey for housing and super trendy now. But Nederland is still kind of off the beaten path & adore it. Love that part of the country.

  4. I think I would be afraid to run in a new city without either someone else or some planning. I get lost or end up in “not so nice areas” WAY too easily. Looks like a gorgeous run!

  5. I love these photos on your run! It looks gorgeous!!! You are so good I totally would have slept in then kicked myself for it all day long!

  6. I can’t do early morning workouts. My mornings are a process. I have to take my thyroid pill, finish waking up, drink my lemon water, then eat a big breakfast. I am hungry in the morning! Plus, I have found that if I try and work out before eating, that my system refuses to *move* that day. It prefers breakfast first, then digestion, then everything seems to work fine. The only problem is that when the system gets messed up, all hell breaks loose. See, THIS is why I’m a control freak, lol.

  7. 1. Do you find it easy or hard to get motivated for early workouts?

    No because I just wake up and run!

    2. If you’re a runner, when you get to a new city do you plan your runs, look at maps, consult your digital devices like your iPhone or Garmin, or do you just wing it?

    I wing it as well!

  8. I am fine with morning workouts if I wake up naturally … but … if I have to wake up to an alarm, then there is NO way I will have motivation to workout.
