Working in a large hospital setting offers some advantages. In this case, it means that I have access to a small men's room with a few lockers and a shower. Given that I have a 75-90 minute commute, the ability to shower at work is critical. It means, among other things, that I don't have to run at 5 am in the morning, and that I get to run in Boston. However to make it happen, I do have to get up before 5 am.

run was before it was covered with snow
But, as I wrote the other day, I don't want to put things on hold, put life on hold, waiting for some milestone. There is always another obstacle in the way - a busy week at work, kids sports or school events, a cold, the snow. Life doesn't roll up the delays and roll out a red carpet with an invitation to begin something new. Sometimes you just need to overcome the inertia and start. I felt rested on Monday so I went to sleep early and the next morning, I ran.
The goal was just to run.
