TNTcoach Ken said...

Thirty-one minutes to get out the door, that sounds like me in the morning.......

Kat Moving Forward said...

Way to go! I woke up at just after 5 with the intent of an early run, panicked that it was so early and went back to bed. Now it will probably have to wait until after dusk.

I want to be like you when I grow up ... except I'm pretty sure I am older than you.

Scarlett Elliewood said...

You are amazing. A question: what time do you go to bed?

Cynthia O'H said...

I was up at 5:00 and thought about going out then but waited. Now it's hot and yucky. Stupid me....

Aneta said...

Fran said...

Hmm looks like my comment hasn't uploaded so again:

Read about you at Linz' blog about you getting up at 3.30 am for a run and thought: WOW got to check this super woman out!

I like your blog and added you to my reader. Will come back to read your stories.

MAN! I need to get up that early, but I am struggling with 5 AM!!! Good job!

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

I am so envious of being able to get up and leave the house...without loading a stroller & arranging a sitter. Amazing job converting into a early early morning LONG runner!

Kim said...

I'm still so jealous of your morning runs! Great job!

And yeah, rabbits are everywhere at my place, too :)

J said...

Totally love this post Marlene!! Great job on the run! 4:10am is EARLY!!!

Jamie said...

That is so early (I'm going to keep saying this!) You are a rockstar Marlene! Congrats on getting the MWMLR done at a great pace!

Runners Fuel said...

Good job for getting up so early and getting out there.

Denise said...

this is exactly what i was talking about in my scheduling post the other day...so hard to get those runs in mid week. 4am? before work? ugh. but great job!!

aron said...

yayyyyyy you are rocking these lady!!! you are definitely going to be my inspiration for when mine start up very soon. its SO worth it to get them done in the morning. plus you don't really know what is going on yet that time of day ;)

and bunnies?!?!?!! omg <3

Jamie said...

Great run! I'm excited to start mine but I'm not sure if I'll be running that far mid week. Maybe one day! Keep it up!! :)

RunningLaur said...

Feels like 88F would be heaven!!
Way to go on the lots and lots of miles. You're going to hit like 1000 for the month, right? ;)

Her Name is Rio said...

Happy Wednesday! Can't believe you can run that much that early AND blog about it on the same day. You.. are.. incredible!

Kerrie T. said...

Love the stats! MWLRs are hard.

Anne said...

You are amazing!! I'm totally impressed. How cool that you met your husband :)

Heidi said...

other runners spotted: 1 hubby ... hahahahaha that's too funny.

BTW, I told my hubby about your early morning runs and he thinks your nuts. :) But you probably knew that. That sure is hot & humid for that time of the morning. I got about the same temps yesterday, though it was early evening, not early morning.

Congrats on completing another successfull MWLR (or whatever you call it :) )

The Happy Runner said...

Grrrreat job!
That's some heat for that early in the am. Such a hot summer!

joyRuN said...

Good heavens - still that hot in teh early morning! I'd have slept in ;)

destination262 said...

You rock! Yay for pre-sunrise runs! If I can get one more under my belt I will feel confident that someday I could actually hang with you! LOL! Keep up the good work.

Maureen said...

Hi, just started following your blog! I can't believe you get up at 4 am, that's crazy!

Leah B. said...

great run! I wish I could get up and do more early runs. Way to go!

Ali said...

the next time the alarm goes off at 6am for a 5 mile run and I press snooze, I'll think about you and this post. No excuse.

You rock!

runnernic.com said...

way to be awesome!!! waking up that early is insane! mad props your way! what time do you go to bed?

MCM Mama said...

Nice job! I swear, at the rate I'm going, I'll soon be going to bed as you are getting up...

Jill said...

Your amazing. Now please come back to Seattle! Great job on that run...I'm totally impressed!

Hope your doing well.

lindsay said...

I think I've said this 3729 times already but you've really stepped it up this year!! As always I am impressed :)

Funny that you ran into hubs. Personally I'd have twist his arm with "but don't you love me? Why won't you run with me?" ;-)

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

That is AMAZING!! 88 at 4AM, you and hubs should move by me :)

And that is a lot of rabbits...wowzers.

I like the picture, it is very you..

Mel -Tall Mom on the Run said...

Forgot to tell you loads of people are coming to my page telling me they found me through you :) HUGS!!

And... when I was checking my stats your site was the 3rd on the list of where people come from.. Crazy!! Thanks!!
